FOOTBALL BETTING: Live On Sky Sports 2: Tue 19:45 Champions Barcelona can put themselves in the driving seat in their Champions League tie against VfB Stuttgart and take a lead back to the Camp Nou.
The Catalans outfit are a prohibitive 1/9 (Totesport) to progress to the last eight but against a side languishing in mid-table in the Bundesliga, Pep Guardiola’s men, 4/6 with Ladbrokes, are worth backing to come out on top in the first leg at the Mercedes-Benz Arena.
Of the eight teams in Champions League action this week, Barca stand out at 9/4 (bet365) to be the highest scoring and at the other end, the La Liga leaders are worth backing at 7/5 with Paddy Power to keep a clean sheet.
Domestically, they have only conceded six away goals in a dozen games while they managed two shutouts in three fixtures on the road during the group phase of this competition.
In Athens, Olympiakos’ indifferent form in the Greek league means they don’t appeal at 15/8 with Victor Chandler to get the better of French champions Bordeaux.
Benfica meanwhile, are a safe bet at 7/20 (Jaxx.com) to see off the Bundesliga’s bottom club Hertha Berlin in the Europa League.
