Champions League Tuesday Betting Preview PT 3- By A.J. Ryder on April 18, 2017 17:22 GMT
The draw here can be backed at a price of 3/1 and that's not a bad bit of business for the neutral punter today.
In regards to outright qualification here you'll be looking at a 4/11 price on Real Madrid to progress to the next stage of the contest while their counterparts at Bayern Munich will be commanding a 3/1 listing.
Taking a look at the first goalscorer wagering options here you have an absolute dearth of talent to work with and you can expect the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo to command a pretty short price to open the scoring here. Big time players like Ronaldo score big goals in matches that matter – matches that are a lot like this one.
Right now, you'll find Cristiano Ronaldo available at a prie as high as 15/4 to grab the opener in this contest but most bookmakers have him trading around a 10/3 or 7/2 margin. Robert Lewandowski is usually a good bet to grab a goal in any match and you can pretty much bank on him starting this contest. He's available at a price as high as a 9/2 listing to grab the opening strike of the match and that would certainly make it game on for Bayern Munich.
Karim Benzema always commands a lot of respect and, should be wind up finding his name on the teamsheet at the start of the match, you're looking at a pretty good shout on him to grab the opening goal of the match. The bookmakers are struggling to price him effectively and he can be backed anywhere between 4/1 and 13/2.
Oftentimes, the defenders wind up spending so much time keeping track of Cristiano Ronaldo, that it opens things up for Benzema or somebody else to slip in from the midfield.
