European football continues tonight with the second legs of the quarter finals, after Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, AS Monaco and Juventus all progressed into the semi-finals of the Champions League.
Starting off with Manchester United who host Anderlecht at Old Trafford tonight and a goalless draw (12/1 with BetBright) would be enough to see Mourinho’s men through to the semi-finals. United will be missing some key men in Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Juan Mata who are all ruled out of the match with injury, but we could see England and United Skipper Wayne Rooney return to the bench.
Last week’s game between Lyon and Besiktas was marred by crowd violence which has resulted in both clubs being handed two-year suspended bans by Uefa. Lyon go into the match 2-1 up, but Besiktas are famous for producing a hostile atmosphere and with an away goal, they will be confident that they can progress to the next stage and are currently priced at 2/1 to win.
Ajax travel to FC Schalke with a 2-0 win after a brace from Klaassen, which has given Schalke a lot of work to do in the second leg. Many punters may fancy Klaassen to get the first tonight, where BetBright are offering a price of 15/2.
It was a goal fest in last week’s fixture between Celta Vigo and Genk, where the Spanish side came out with a 3-2 win. For there to be over 4.5 goals this evening is 7/2 with BetBright. Iago Aspas got the second for Celta Vigo last time and BetBright have him at 9/2 to score first.
