Champions League Acca – 18th & 19th February

This week sees the return of the Champions League with the Round of 16 getting underway with four of the eight first leg games in this round of matches taking place across Tuesday and Wednesday night, with the remaining four ties taking place at the same time next week. The reason being that by staggering the Champions League Round of 16 in this way, it allows the Europa League to play through two rounds of matches, so both competitions can be at the same stage from the quarterfinals on.

With all four Premier League representatives making it through to this stage of the competition, it means that we have teams involved in each session of matches over the next couple of weeks with Liverpool facing Atletico Madrid on Tuesday followed by Tottenham taking on Red Bull Leipzig on Wednesday. Next week both Chelsea and Manchester City will face their Round of 16 First Leg ties.

There are some huge games to look forward to over the course of the next week or so, in addition to Liverpool’s clash with Atletico, Borussia Dortmund facing Paris St Germain is another massive game, while Man City face Real Madrid, Chelsea take on Bayern Munich and Barcelona face Napoli.

We have put together the four games this week into a fourfold accumulator which stretches across both days. Let’s take a look now at the tips we have made for each game.

Bet Analysis: Tuesday 18th February

Atletico Madrid v Liverpool – Away Win

As we get down to the business end of this tournament now, this is when teams start to kick on a gear and ordinarily, I would never tip Atletico Madrid to lose at the Wanda Metropolitano against any opponent. However, Diego Simeone could be without as many as seven key players for this game which is a worry in itself, but they are also facing a Liverpool side who have shown over the past two seasons that they can get results against anyone when it matters. The Reds have been the top side in the Premier League this season and I think they have the players to hit this under-strength Atletico team on the counter. I can’t see there being many goals, and one goal may do it, but I feel Liverpool are the most likely to get it.

Borussia Dortmund v Paris St Germain – Draw

These two teams are not shot-shy and of all the ties in the Round of 16, this is the one to me that promises plenty of goals. Dortmund’s form of late hasn’t been great and PSG are on a long winning streak. However, the French side are not the best travellers in Europe and Dortmund in Europe are a different prospect than they are in the Bundesliga. Even so, I can’t quite see the home side taking the win here, so strong are PSG in terms of personnel, but I do think this game will see plenty of goals and a 2-2 or even 3-3 draw is not out of the question, setting up a tasty second leg in Paris in three weeks time.

Bet Analysis: Wednesday 19th February

Atalanta v Valencia – Draw

Atalanta had a very strange route into the knockout stage as they were bottom of their group with two games to go, but two wins, plus results going their way saw them clinch an unlikely place as a runner up and they are now up against a Valencia side that along with Chelsea, knocked out Ajax from the group stages of the competition. Valencia are tough to beat, disciplined and dogged and they are strong defensively. Atalanta, I feel, have a free shot here but Valencia are very tight at the back and this Italian team is very young. As such, I can see Valencia strangling the life out of the game here and perhaps going back to Spain with a 0-0 or a 1-1 draw.

Tottenham v Red Bull Leipzig- Home Win

I think Spurs fans will have been happy with this draw, and I also feel that they are facing Red Bull Leipzig at just the right time. The German side have not been in the best form of late and have lost top spot in the Bundesliga to Bayern (who they drew 0-0 with at the weekend) and there is constant speculation at the moment about a number of their players, Timo Werner and Dayo Upemecano being just two. Spurs form of late has been better, if not spectacularly so and they will miss Harry Kane in these games, but I still feel that they have enough quality to get the job done and pick up a win in the home leg here.
