Wednesday Champions League Betting Preview PT 2- By A.J. Ryder on April 19, 2017 17:31 GMT
Both Teams to Score is definitely a good shout here and you'll find that Yes is the favoured option and it's pricedas high as a 6/10 margin with most books going 1/2 or 8/15. The No option on Both Teams To Score is trading at a listing as high as 13/8.
It probably doesn't come as a huge surprise to anybody that Lionel Messi is available as the betting favourite to score the opening goal of the match and you will find the Argentinian legend priced at a listing as high as 16/5 for the opener while Luis Suarez – another major contender to score in any match he plays in – can be backed at a 7/2 margin.
Punters will find Paco Alacer trading at a 6/1 listing while Neymar is an interesting option at the same price should he actually get the start.
The other match of the day sees a much more wide open contest unfolding between Borussai Dortmund and Monaco and this one is so close that the bookmakers have it priced pretty closely with the German side just getting the edge it seems. Right now, you'll be able to back Dortmund at a tempting price of 6/5 to get the outright 90 minutes result over Monaco who are around a 2/1 price tag with most books going 19/10.
The outright draw here is an interesting option of 3/1 and there are a few who will back that but it's best left as an in-play wager to be made after the half-time break.
Taking a look at the odds for the outright qualification, you're looking at around a 4/11 margin for Monaco to progress to the next stage of the competition by any possible method – including extra time or penalties. You can back Borussia Dortmund to get the result over the two legs and pull off a reverse here by secuding a 5/2 payout.
Keep an eye out for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to open the scoring at a price of around 4/1 with several top bookmakers while Falcao would be a major story to score the crucial goal at an 11/2 price tag.
