Tuesday's Champions League Betting Preview PT 1

The top quality football is coming nearly every day now it seems with a fascinating weekend of action behind us and a new slate of Champions League fixtures on the plate for today. We are now in the second round of the knockout stages and a few teams have plenty of obstacles to overcome thanks to relatively underwhelming performances in the first leg. 


One fixture that definitely seems to be still on the table is the Atletico Madrid vs Bayer Leverkusen match-up that kicks off this evening. Atletico were widely tipped as a bit of a wise guy selection to win the Champions League this year and they will need to overturn a 1-0 deficit against the German side - who were considerable underdogs in their first leg match-up. There was lots to like about that performance and they will come in here with confidence despite the Vicente Calderon Stadium being a tough place to visit. 

Regardless, Atletico are favoured to get the result here with the bookmakers pricing them at a slim 4/5 price tag to get the outright victory over 90 minutes. Bayer Leverkusen can be backed at a 15/4 price while the draw is trading at a competitive 13/5 price. 

Interestingly enough, the bookmakers consider Bayer Leverkusen to be the favourites to progress to the next stage of the competition despite being the underdogs here and only being 1-0 up. They are trading at an 8/15 price tag to progress to the next round while punters will find the Spanish hosts priced out at around 11/8 right now to ensure qualification. 

Mario Mandzukic gets the edge for Atletico in the goalscorer markets with a 4/1 price tag to score first or last and a 5/4 price to grab an any time goal. Fernando Torres is just a notch behind him and is listed at 9/2 to score first or last and 8/5 to score any time.
