Champions League Tuesday Betting Preview PT 1- By A.J. Ryder on April 18, 2017 17:19 GMT
We've got the second legs of the Champions League quarter finals kicking off today and you can expect some serious action and excitement unfolding in both fixtures with the possibility of Leicester City extending their fairytale run just that little bit longer by pulling off a reverse against Atletico Madrid at home.
Looking at the early odds right now during the build-up to the match, you've got a very solid price tag of about 17/20 on Atletico to win this match over the 90 minutes. It goes without saying that, coming into the fixture, they are up by a considerable amount to progress to the next stage of the competition by any means.
Leicester are availabe at a price as high as 14/5 to get the victory here in this individual fixture and they will certainly take that since a 1-0 victory would force extra time on aggregate. The key for them is simply not to ship the away goal since that would require three goals from the Foxes in order to ensure progression.
The draw here can be backed at an 18/5 price tag and that's interesting because that also works out just as well for Atletico – ensuring that they would go through to the next stage of the Champions League competition.
In regards to outright qualification, you'll find Atletico Madrid trading anywhere between a 2/13 price and 1/16 price to progress to the next stage of the competition via any method. Should Leicester ity be able to pull this off then you're looking at a very tasty payout in the neighbourhood of around 13/2 depending on whom you're wagering with.
