Real Madrid will be looking to overturn a 2-1 first-leg deficit when they travel to Manchester City for the second leg of their last-16 Champions League contest on Friday night.

City recorded an impressive victory when the pair met at the Bernabeu back in February, meaning that Madrid have plenty to do if they are to advance to the quarter-finals of the competition once again.

We say: Manchester City 2-2 Real Madrid (City 4-3 on aggregate)


There is no question that Madrid are capable of turning this tie around, but we are finding it difficult to back City to lose at the Etihad Stadium, even taking into account their problems. It would not be a surprise to see this game run into extra time and possibly penalties, but we are backing a 2-2 draw on the night, which would see Guardiola's side advance into the quarter-finals of the competition.

Our tipster partners are predicting a home win in this match.

Juventus vs. Lyon (Friday, 8.00pm)

Juventus will be aiming to overturn a 1-0 deficit when they welcome Lyon to Turin for the second leg of their Champions League last-16 clash on Friday.

A first-half Lucas Tousart goal was enough for Lyon to triumph in the first leg before the coronavirus pandemic wreaked havoc across the sporting landscape.

We say: Juventus 3-0 Lyon


Neither Juventus nor Lyon finished their domestic campaigns as strongly as they would have hoped, but Juventus have proved themselves as a force to be reckoned with at home and could be boosted by the potential return of Dybala, so we are backing the Old Lady to march to victory in convincing fashion and book their spot in the quarter-finals.


Our tipster partners are predicting over 2.5 goals in this match.
