Big week ahead in the Champions League and Europa league betting this football midweek as the competitions draw nearer the latter stages. First up on Tuesday and Wednesday night is the Champions League action where Manchester UTD take on Milan after quite a lucky first leg win IMO and doubts over Wayne Rooney's fitness make that an intriguing affair. Madrid and Arsenal both look to over turn first leg disadvantages against Lyon and Porto respectively and both away sides will come to defend all hands to the pump.
The Europa league last 16 gets underway on Thursday night and a few mouth watering fixtures in prospect as well as a few nice looking value betting opportunities. 2 games that look like they may have goals on the cards are Valencia at home to free scoring Bremen and a back on form Wolfsburg take on Kazan over in Russia. Liverpool have a difficult fixture away to Lille and the home side could be decent value bets to pick up at least a point.... stay tuned for expert Champions league/ Europa league value betting picks....
