Trailing 3-1 after the first leg in Italy, Chelsea are 12/5 with Blue Square to reach the quarter final of the Champions League while opponents Napoli are considered strong favourites, given their two-goal lead, at 4/11 via bet365.
William Hill make the Blues odds-on at 19/20 to win the second leg at Stamford Bridge, where a 2-0 triumph, priced by Stan James at 17/2, would be enough to propel Roberto Di Matteo’s charges into the last eight.
However, the Serie A side are deadly on the counter-attack and Chelsea simply don’t look solid enough defensively to keep their creative players at bay. Subsequently, Napoli should grab at least one crucial away goal and with the in mind, Skybet’s 8/13 for both teams to score looks a banker.
Slightly bigger than that, at 4/6 via Betfred is a match tally of three or more goals but the visitors attacking prowess could make for an even higher scoring contest and Sportingbet post 9/5 against the two sides notching at least four times between them.
Also full of goals could be Real Madrid’s second leg against CSKA Moscow at the Bernabeu. The score stands at 1-1 after the first game, putting the hosts in the driving seat in terms of qualification and indeed Totesport offer just 1/14 for Jose Mourinho’s charges to progress. Subsequently, it’s potentially more lucrative to focus on the total goals markets, especially as Madrid are rampant on their own patch, where they netted 13 times in three outings at the group stage.
CSKA are no slouches in attack either and like the Stamford Bridge encounter this one should generate over 3.5 goals, an outcome Sportingbet offer at 17/20.
Double on over 3.5 goals in both matches – 4/1 (Sportingbet)
