Champions League: Semi-Final Second Legs Best Bets

5 min

Producer Ryan Cahill is on hand to summarise the best bets from Mark O’Haire, Adrian Clarke and Miguel Delaney from this week’s two Semi Final Second Legs on our Champions League podcast.

Just the three remaining Champions League games of the season, and we head into this week’s Semi-Final second legs with neither of the four remaining sides being definitively ruled out of appearing in Istanbul in June.

A titanic battle awaits at the Etihad, with the tie being finely poised at 1-1, this may be the last big hurdle in the way of a treble for Manchester City. Europe’s most storied club will be looking to put an end to those hopes as they look to go back-to-back in the Champions League.

Inter must think they have one foot in the final, however, AC Milan will surely still believe they can get this done. Especially given it is not so much an away fixture playing in the San Siro, although, Inter are the designated home team.

Enjoy the UCL action this week, best of luck if having a punt, and please do remember to gamble responsibly!

Mark O’Haire’s Best Bet

Mark’s best bet takes us to San Siro, where he is expecting an entertaining affair between both Milan clubs.

With the second leg set-up so that AC Milan will need to adopt a gung-ho approach, Mark sees opportunities for a savvy Inter side to make the most of any mistakes from their Milanese counterparts.

Recommended Bet: Inter Milan vs AC Milan – Over 2.5 Goals (2.16)

Adrian Clarke’s Best Bet

Adrian opting for a different pro-goals angle, has elected to go with BTTS YES as his best bet on the card.

Like Mark, Adrian is expecting Inter to be able to exploit an open Milan side but not without having their own goal breached.

Recommended Bet: Inter Milan vs AC Milan – BTTS YES (1.91)

Miguel Delaney’s Best Bet

A double best bet from Miguel who is in total agreement with Adrian on the BTTS angle.

All three of the lads are expecting an exciting, goal-filled spectacle at the San Siro on Tuesday night.
