Champions League betting tips: Turin thriller in 19/1 four-fold

The Champions League returns this week with the second legs of the quarter-finals featuring some mouth-watering ties.

We enjoyed two winning Champions League betting tips out of four in the first legs and hopefully we can have more success this week.

We've studied the Champions League odds for the second legs and have four tips which can be combined to make a football accumulator at just under 20/1 and also qualify for a 7.5% bonus as part of our acca bonus offer.

Champions League Betting Tips

Here are our predictions for the second legs of the quarter-finals:

And if you're feeling lucky, combining all our Champions League predictions into a 4 fold will pay out just under 20/1.

[All odds correct at time of publication]

Barcelona vs Manchester United

Manchester United's stunning comeback to beat Paris Saint-Germain proves that this tie is not yet over but Barcelona are firmly in control following a 1-0 win at Old Trafford.

They are clearly not being complacent though and coach Ernesto Valverde changed all 10 outfield players for the goalless draw at Huesca at the weekend.

Barcelona have suffered just one Champions League defeat at the Nou Camp in the last decade and we can't see Ole Gunnar Solskjaer conjuring another great escape here.

United have failed to impress in recent weeks, failing to register a shot on target in the first leg, and the first of our Champions League predictions is Barcelona to win by more than one goal at evens.

Champions League previews

If you're interested in more tips on this week's Champions League matches, check out our in-depth previews below:

Juventus vs Ajax

Ajax were the better team in the 1-1 draw in the first leg which we predicted at 23/10 and will still fancy their chances of causing another upset, having knocked out Real Madrid in the last round with a 4-1 win at the Bernabeu.

Juve struggled for possession in the first leg and scored with their only shot on target, while no team has kept a clean sheet against Ajax in the Champions League.

The Eredivisie leaders have also scored 18 goals in their last four domestic matches so this has the makings of a thrilling tie which could go either way, so over 2.5 goals is our bet here at 5/6.

Porto vs Liverpool

Liverpool were comfortable winners in the first leg but the 2-0 scoreline means the tie is not yet over, unlike last season when the Reds triumphed 5-0 at this venue.

Porto have failed to score in their three recent meetings with Liverpool and now need at least two goals to have any hope of going through.

They have little choice but to attack, but Liverpool should have the quality to take advantage of any gaps at the back and 11/10 for the away win is added to our Champions League tips.

Manchester City vs Tottenham

Manchester City began the quarter-finals as the Champions League favourites but they have drifted to 10/3 in the outright betting after a 1-0 defeat in the first leg.

The goal came after Harry Kane went off injured so they are not reliant on the absent England captain for goals, and their best hope of progressing could be to grab a vital away goal.

No visiting team has kept a clean sheet at the Etihad Stadium this season and they have won 16 out of 17 at home in the Premier League, although they conceded a goal in nine of those wins.

City remain the favourites to qualify at 8/13 in the Champions League odds but we prefer 17/10 for City to win and both teams to score, which could be enough for Tottenham to reach the semi-finals.
