Wednesday's Champions League predictions including Liverpool vs. Real Madrid

Sports Mole provides score predictions for both of Wednesday's Champions League quarter-final second legs - Borussia Dortmund vs. Man City and Liverpool vs. Real Madrid.

Manchester City will be aiming to book their spot in the semi-finals of the Champions League when they travel to the Westfalenstadion to take on Borussia Dortmund in the second leg of their quarter-final bout.

The Black and Yellow were minutes away from claiming a 1-1 draw from the first leg at the Etihad, but a late Phil Foden strike saw City win the tie 2-1 ahead of Wednesday's meeting.

We say: Borussia Dortmund 1-2 Manchester City


With Haaland desperate to end his surprising goal drought in a tournament where he continues to shatter records, City's rearguard is there to be breached by Dortmund this week. However, Guardiola will be demanding an immediate reaction from his much-changed side upon his return to Germany, and while this should be another close affair, we expect an identical scoreline to the first leg as City march on to the semi-finals.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 2.5 goals.

Liverpool vs. Real Madrid (Wednesday, 8.00pm)

The Liverpool faithful will be praying that lightning strikes twice against Spanish opposition at Anfield this week when Real Madrid pay a visit for the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final clash on Wednesday.

Los Blancos travel to Merseyside boasting a 3-1 lead from the first leg in Madrid, where Vinicius Junior bagged a brace and Marco Asensio capitalised on a defensive error to put the visitors firmly in control.

Both sides also claimed vital league wins by the slenderest of margins at the weekend, as Liverpool ended their wretched home run with a 2-1 win over Aston Villa while Real Madrid came out on top in El Clasico by the same scoreline.

We say: Liverpool 2-2 Real Madrid


Both Liverpool and Real Madrid have defensive weaknesses ready to be exploited by the other, as Klopp and Zidane continue to work around the absences of their first-choice centre-backs at the worst possible time.

Another historic Champions League comeback on the Anfield turf is not beyond the realm of possibility, and Klopp's side would have received a much-needed injection of confidence after pulling themselves out of their home rut against Aston Villa.

We can envisage another goal-fest in the second leg, but an in-form Real Madrid have the upper hand and will surely possess too much quality for an inconsistent and wounded Liverpool, so we are backing Los Blancos to book a place in the final four after a high-scoring draw.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or draw.
