The first leg in Paris may have ended all square but with home advantage in the second encounter, Barcelona are considered bankers by bookmakers to progress to the Champions League semi-final at the expense of Paris St Germain; Ladbrokes quoting Tito Vilanova’s side at 1/7 to qualify.
Stan James rate the Catalans side at 4/11 to win the actual match and given the way they demolished AC Milan in the Camp Nou in the previous round, it’s easy to see why the bookies are treading carefully where Barca are concerned.
Nevertheless, the ambitious French outfit caused enough trouble for the Barcelona rearguard on their own patch to suggest they can strike in this one and Boylesports offer a generous 5/6 about both teams getting on the scoresheet.
BetVictor’s 13/10 for the contest to generate at least four goals also stands out and Coral make Lionel Messi 4/7 to contribute to the total at some stage. The same firm meanwhile, quote 5/2 for a Messi opener.
Over in Turin, Juventus are looking to overturn a 2-0 deficit as they host Bayern Munich and they’ll take plenty of heart from the way Arsenal gave the Bundesliga champions a fright in the last round.
A victory for the Italian outfit isn’t out of the question though at a hefty looking 2/1 courtesy of Stan James and this one could also be relatively high-scoring, Hills marking 10/11 against a tally of more than 2.5 goals.
Double on over 3.5 goals at Barcelona and over 2.5 at Juventus – 17/5 (BetVictor)
