Live on Skysports 2: Wed 19.45: Schalke and Inter are very tough to call but Raul could be amongst the goals; he is 2/1 to score (Coral).
As tends to be the case when ties are almost dead in the water, Schalke’s home clash with Inter is tough to call given that the hosts hold a 5-2 lead following a stunning display in the San Siro last week. Their Italian opponents have already overturned a deficit in Germany this season but it would be a huge shock if lightning was to strike twice and subsequently the Bundesliga side are just 1/33 at best with bwin to reach the semi-finals.
However, the second leg itself isn’t as easy to decipher, hence why Stan James price both teams at 13/8 to come out on top. Schalke fanciers can actually get slightly higher odds of 17/10 with Betfred for a home win but neither side can really be backed with confidence.
The way the Serie A side are defending suggests a match total of more than 2.5 goals, available at 4/5 with Totesport but it could be worth backing Schalke marksman Raul to find the net at 2/1 with Coral, especially as he will provide the focal point of the home side’s attack in the absence of Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Jefferson Farfan.
The Spaniard has a remarkable record in the competition, he struck in the first leg and the former Real Madrid man undoubtedly has the class to capitalise on the counter-attack as Inter are forced into throwing men forward.
Raul to score at any time – 2/1 (Coral)
