There is no doubting the biggest tie left in the group phase of the Champions League. Real Madrid host Borussia Dortmund in a match they must win if they are to top Group F.
Both these European giants are through to the next stage but there is a distinct advantage to finishing top of the group. Dortmund have deserved that spot as Real have often been a little off the pace in what has been a group dominated by the two big guns. It is hard to find a team in better form than Dortmund in Europe. They are smashing goals in from all over the place and showed they have the fight for a tight game too when beating Bayern Munich 1-0. They certainly will not be daunted by the trip and if Real give them space they will get hurt.
Real are no slouches either and are on a good run that carried on with a terrific late point at Barcelona last weekend. You won’t find Zidane’s men this big a price for many games at home and that makes them hard to turn down. It should be a close encounter but Real have the class to prevail in what will at the end and reward home backers.
Elsewhere, there should be home wins for Spurs, Porto and Juventus. These are home bankers and will be in most accas. If you are looking to boost that then look no further than Bayer Leverkusen, who should put the cherry on top of Group E with a home win over Monaco.
One of the more intriguing ties of the round is the match up between Lyon and Sevilla. The Spanish outfit still have a very slim hope of topping the group. They will travel with that in mind but they will meet a pretty stubborn Lyon side. The market is edging towards Sevilla but Lyon are hard to beat. This has all the looks of a very close game that will go to the home side and leave us heading to the Correct Score market and selecting 2-1 as the final score.
