Overview of the Quarter Final Second Matches in Eurocups

UEFA Champions League 

The first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals was quite the show, with teams Manchester City and Real Madrid stealing the spotlight. Here is the overview of the second leg of the quarter-final games.

  • Manchester City Vs Bayern Munich 

Thomas Tuchel was on familiar grounds at the Etihad Stadium. Still, the results were far from familiar to the German coach who always went toe-to-toe with any Pep Guardiola team. Bayern Munich suffered a 3-0 thrashing at the hands of City in the first leg of their quarter-finals matchup, with goals coming from Rodrigo, Bernando Silva, and Erling Haaland. The second leg takes place at the Allianz arena, and Bayern Munich will have to do the impossible to book a spot in the semi-finals. Note that Bayern is seen to be struggling since Tuchel’s takeover.

  • Benfica Vs Inter Milan 

Benfica suffered a home loss in the first leg of their quarter-final game against Inter Milan. To secure the win, the Italian outfit scored two second-half goals, courtesy of Nicolo Barella and Romelu Lukaku. Benfica, against all odds, will now have to win by at least three goals at San Siro to qualify for the next round. Inter Milan’s defense has put them in a great position, and they look likely to maintain their lead in the second leg.

  • Real Madrid Vs Chelsea 

The Los Blancos earned the much-deserved win when they hosted Chelsea at the Santiago Bernabeu in the first leg of their quarter-finals encounter. Goals from Karim Benzema and substitute Isco were all that was needed to secure the advantage ahead of their trip to the Bridge. Chelsea has quite the history against Madrid in the Champions League, and we have seen them in this position before. What is sure is Madrid won’t have it easy at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday.

  • AC Milan Vs Napoli 

Napoli was without their star man Victor Osimehn when they faced AC Milan last week in the first leg of their quarter-final encounter, and AC Milan made them pay for it as they won 1-0 at home. Napoli will have to fight from one goal down in the second leg, and it shouldn’t be much of an issue for them. They have the quality with Osimhen back in the starting lineup and should be able to get the work done at home.

UEFA Europa League

The Europa League had some shockers this weekend, with the Manchester United vs Sevilla game undoubtedly claiming the match of the week in the quarter-final draw. Here are the results of the four games played last week Thursday.

  • Feyenoord Vs AS Roma 

Jose Mourinho’s Roma has been struggling this season, but they have done well in European competitions this year. Feyenoord handed Roma a shocking 1-0 defeat in their first encounter in the quarter-finals, and Mats Wieffer was the lone scorer for the Dutch side. Mourinho is well-versed in European competitions, and we believe his team has all it takes to turn things around in the second leg against Feyenoord.

  • Juventus Vs Sporting

Despite having one hell of a season, Juventus is still pushing hard in the Europa League. They handed Sporting a 1-0 defeat in their first encounter of the two-legged quarter-finals matchup. Sporting have impressed so far in the competition as they were the team that sent Arsenal packing in the round of sixteen. The second leg will be closely contested, with Juventus tipped to bag a semi-final spot eventually.

  • Man United Vs Sevilla 

Manchester United was shocked by Sevilla in the first leg. United, who had a comfortable two-goal advantage to end the first half, cost themselves the advantage as they scored two own goals with less than ten minutes left to the end of normal regulation. Manchester United lost a key player Lisandro Martinez, to a season-ending injury in that game, so the second leg of the game will be on level terms, with Sevilla slightly favored due to their experience in the tournament.

  • Bayer Leverkusen Vs Union Saint-Gilloise 

Xabi Alonso’s Leverkusen played out a 1-1 draw against Union Saint-Gilloise in the first leg of their quarter-final encounter. Saint-Gilloise led by a goal until the 82nd minute when Leverkusen equalized to ensure they have all to play for in the second leg away from home. These are two equally-matched teams, and what we can expect in the second leg is an intense game that is poised to be low-scoring like the first leg.

Five Betting Strategies for Eurocups Quarter Final Second Matches

Through carefully studied patterns observed in the first leg of the quarter-finals, we devised important strategies our users can utilize when betting on Tuesday and Wednesday’s second round of games.

Put Into Consideration Current Team’s Form

When betting on teams in the UEFA club competitions, it’s important to consider the current team’s form. A typical example is seen in the Real Madrid Vs Chelsea game. The last time they played before this year’s Champions League encounter, Chelsea won against Los Blancos in a dominant performance. However, they no longer have the head coach that oversaw that dominant performance, which was evident in the 2-0 loss to Real Madrid last week. Regardless of the club’s performance in the competition history, look at the current team’s form.

Home Advantage

You must prioritize the home advantage when betting on the Champions League and Europa League. In the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final, the home team won three of the four games played. Meanwhile, in the Europa League, two of the four home teams won; those were the only two games with a match-winner. These patterns can not be ignored; make sure to follow them.

Low Scoring Games

Most UEFA Champions League and Europa League games went the “Under.” Besides Manchester City, who won 3-0 against Bayern Munich, and Manchester United’s 2-2 draw against Sevilla, out of eight games played, only two had more than two goals scored. This strategy will be employed when betting the over or under in parlays in the upcoming second-leg games.

Both Teams To Score

This betting market did not thrive much in the first leg. We expect to see more of it in the second-leg games as the odds are higher with a qualification at stake. Explore this market in the upcoming matches, as it is sometimes overlooked.

Live Betting 

In some scenarios, especially in European club competitions like the Champions League and Europa League, you are unsure which team is the favorite or the underdog. This is where live betting sorts the dilemma. In eight games played in both competitions last week, six had the first goal-scoring team winning at the end of regular time. Therefore, you can back the team that scores first to become the eventual match winners.
