UEFA Champions League Quarter-finals: Best Betting Football Tips
Atalanta vs. Paris Saint-Germain: Champions League Betting Tip on Best Betting Sites
Atalanta and Paris Saint-Germain square off in the first Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday night. This intriguing one-off match will take place at the Estadio da Luz in Lisbon. La Dea had a superb season in Serie A, but PSG are the favourites at evens to get the job done.
Atalanta – who were the top scorers in Italy’s top flight in the 2019-20 campaign – have done exceptionally well to get this far. In the Round of 16, Gian Piero Gasperini’s men made light work of Spanish side Valencia, winning 4-1 at the San Siro and 4-3 at the Mestalla to secure an 8-4 aggregate victory.
Thomas Tuchel’s Paris were 2-1 down against Borussia Dortmund in their last 16 tie. However, the French champions turned things around at the Parc des Princes in March, with goals from Neymar and Juan Bernat giving PSG a 2-0 win on home soil.
This one really could go either way in the Portuguese capital, but the Parisians certainly have the experience when it comes to knockout Champions League football. BetVictor are offering 10/3 for PSG to win by one goal.

RB Leipzig vs. Atletico Madrid: Champions League Betting Predictions on Best Betting Sites
Julian Nagelsmann’s RB Leipzig go head-to-head with Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid in a tasty Champions League quarter-final at the Estadio Jose Alvalade in Lisbon, Portugal on Thursday night. Atleti, who were CL finalists in 2014 and 2016, are the favourites to go through to the last four.
Nagelsmann’s Leipzig were far too strong for Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur in the previous round, thumping the Premier League side 4-0 over two legs. This is the Red Bulls’ first Champions League quarter-final in their short history.
Atl Madrid also beat English opposition in the previous round to book their place in Portugal. Los Rojiblancos saw off Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, who were the 2018-19 European champions. After a hard-fought 1-0 home win, Atleti won 3-2 (a.e.t) at Anfield to go through.
Madrid are no strangers to this stage of the competition, and Simeone’s troops will definitely fancy their chances of beating Leipzig in a one-off shootout. We like the look of BetVictor’s 4/1 for the Spanish side to win -1 in Lisbon.
RB Leipzig 2/1
Atletico Madrid 11/8

Barcelona vs. Bayern Munich: Best Champions League Betting Predictions
Arguably, the standout Champions League quarter-final is Friday night’s blockbuster matchup at the Estadio da Luz between giants Barcelona and Bayern Munich. Between them, these two have won ten European Cups.
Having lost out on the Spanish title to fierce rivals Real Madrid, Barcelona would love to make amends by becoming top dogs in Europe for the first time since the 2014-15 season. Blaugrana beat Napoli 3-1 at the Camp Nou last week to make sure of their spot in Portugal.
Bayern Munich are Europe’s in-form team, as the Bavarians have not tasted defeat in any competition since losing in league action to Borussia Monchengladbach way back in December. They have won all bar one league and cup game since. Hans-Dieter Flick’s boys walloped Chelsea 4-1 at the Allianz Arena last week.
Bayern look unstoppable at the moment, and even the mighty Barcelona could struggle to contain them in Lisbon. Take a punt on the German champions to be winning at half time and full time (11/5 at BetVictor).
Bayern Munich 21/10

Manchester City vs. Olympique Lyonnais: Best UEFA Champions League Betting Tips – Quarter-finals
Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City continue the pursuit for their first ever Champions League trophy when they take on Rudi Garcia’s Olympique Lyonnais in Lisbon’s Estadio Jose Alvalade on Saturday night. Man City – who have been tipped by many to go all the way in Portugal – are the clear favourites to reach the last four.
Manchester City were superb against Spanish champions Real Madrid in the previous round, winning 2-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu and 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium. The Citizens have won six and drawn two of their eight Champions League fixtures this term.
Lyon caused a big upset in the last 16 by beating Juventus, who were one of the Champions League favourites. After a 1-0 home win, a 2-1 loss in Turin saw the Ligue 1 outfit go through on away goals.
Lyon have given Man City one or two problems in the past, but the Citizens should be too strong for Garcia’s boys on Saturday night. Put some money on Pep’s troops to win both halves at 6/4.
Manchester City 1/4
Olympique Lyonnais 9/1
