Liverpool to Make Light Work of Porto?
Following their commanding second leg victory over Bayern Munich in the last 16, Liverpool were handed a quarter-final tie that many would’ve considered the easiest before the draw was made. Porto are a respectable side, but their route to the quarter-final included a weak group, and the Portuguese side have managed just the one clean sheet during their Champions League campaign. Klopp’s side are given a 71% chance of scoring two or more goals at Anfield, a combination of Liverpool forwards appear to be a necessity for your team.
Dominant City Heavily Favoured in All Premier League Clash
Despite their assured victory over Crystal Palace in the first match in their new stadium, Tottenham aren’t given much hope by the bookies in their first leg with Manchester City. Pep’s side have lost just once in all competitions in 2019 and brushed aside Schalke in the last round with a comprehensive 7-0 win at the Etihad in the second leg. City’s attacking assets look to be a safe bet Fantasy-wise, with both Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling given a better than 45% chance of scoring in the first leg.
James Milner – a Risk Worth Taking?
Given a 24% chance of scoring against Porto, James Milner (5.5m on FantasyBet) could be a cheap way into Liverpool assets for their favourable clash at Anfield. Trent Alexander-Arnold appeared to struggle in the Reds’ game at Southampton and was substituted before the hour mark. Klopp’s side looked a lot more solid once Milner, and fellow Englishman Jordan Henderson, took to the pitch. That upturn in performance could see Milner start on Tuesday, and he’ll be on penalties too, could last season’s chief Champions League assist-getter be a hidden gem this week?
Ronaldo Injury Woes Give Kean Chance to Shine
Despite Cristiano Ronaldo being given the fourth highest chance of scoring of any player this week, the Portuguese remains a doubt for Juventus’ trip to Ajax. His potential absence should give Moise Kean (4.5m on FantasyBet) a chance to continue his rich vein of form that’s seen him score five goals in his last five Serie A appearances. The young forward could prove himself to be a valuable enabler in your Fantasy team.
