Champions League R16 best bets & goalscorer picks – March 7-8

Champions League soccer betting tips

It’s do-or-die time for many teams in the UEFA Champions League as we enter the second leg of the round of 16. The likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich and Chelsea will be in action this week, and we have free UCL betting picks for those games and more.

Benfica vs FC Brugge

Of all the UCL games this week, this is probably the dud. Neither of these teams are expected to advance very far, and while they should both be proud to be at this point, they don’t possess the high-end talent to compete with the elite clubs of Europe. That being said, Benfica have a few guys who should be playing for top teams in a few years. One of those players is a guy who flashed during the FIFA World Cup – Goncalo Ramos, who has scored 21 goals in 33 games for the Portuguese side. Brugge have been solid defensively throughout the Champions League, but they conceded twice to Benfica two weeks ago. Now, Brugge will be away and they may struggle to deal with the Benfica attack. Take Ramos to score and continue his stellar season.

Chelsea vs Borussia Dortmund

This is a fascinating game between two teams that will expect to advance deep into this tournament. It was Borussia Dortmund who emerged victorious in the first leg, and they will come into this game with a 1-0 lead. While that will be motivating to the hosts in this battle, we simply cannot trust Chelsea. They have won one game in their last 10 and simply do not have any chemistry right now. Due to a bunch of injuries and a desperate attempt to bring in talent in the January transfer window, this squad just isn’t playing well together. Although Dortmund will be away, we will side with the German giants.

Tottenham Hotspur vs AC Milan

Much like the last game, the away team will have a 1-0 advantage due to a first-leg win. That being said, we like Tottenham to bounce back. Unlike Chelsea, Spurs have played well in recent contests. While they have struggled for consistency, we think they will dominate in this home game. AC Milan have a talented team, but they don’t really have anyone who can stop Harry Kane if he gets going. And considering Kane’s recent performances, we expect him to have a huge game. Take Spurs to get a big win at home and continue their UCL journey.

Bayern Munich vs Paris Saint-Germain

This is definitively the game of the week. Last time out, Bayern Munich went to Paris and claimed a 1-0 victory in a slow-paced game where each team was wary of making mistakes. In this game, that shouldn’t be the case. PSG will need to take it to Bayern from the first minute, and we think they will. As a result, this should be an attacking game where each team has plenty of chances. And if that happens, we like Kylian Mbappe to score. Although the Germans have a great defense, this guys is one of the world’s best and has five goals in his last three games. In a match we expect to be open, Mbappe to score at +160 with Bovada is a steal.
