Barcelona/Bayern Munich Goals, Villarreal/Arsenal draw - BetUK

Barcelona and Bayern Munich, who meet in tonight’s Champions League quarter-final, are the joint-highest scorers in this season’s contest with 24 goals each from eight games.

The hosts of the first leg, Barça, have conceded the most goals (11) of any of the quarter-finalists and, after five attempts, have still to keep a clean sheet on home soil.

It is rare that over 2.5 Goals is odds-on for the first leg of a Champions League knockout tie, but, even so, it is a firm recommendation because defence is not the first priority of either of these sides.

We therefore feel that the best value bet here is to bet on over 2.5/3 goals with BetUK at 4/5. Check football betting for prices on other markets.

Villarreal/Arsenal looks like a draw

In terms of their strength in depth there is no doubt that Arsenal are a superior team and should come away from tonight’s Champions League quarter-final against Villarreal with a win.

However, there are enough reasons to believe that this will be a tricky encounter and while Arsenal have better players we think the value has to be in betting on a draw, available at 41/20 with BetUK.

Technically-gifted Villarreal have lost just twice at home all season and they will be determined to frustrate the Gunners at their intimidating, tight ground, with a view to grabbing the all-important away goal at the Emirates.

Given that they have held Man United to four goalless draws in as many attempts, they can probably do so again here, and backing the 0-0 score line at 13/2 could certainly look like a clever play by 10pm this evening.

Arsenal’s returning players are still short of match fitness, which means that over the two legs they should go through, but in the meantime backing Under 2.0 goals at 19/20 also has to be recommended.
