25.2. UCL Betting Preview:

Arsenal - Monaco  

Arsenal have been in great form recently. They've won 8 out of their last nine games losing only once in all competitions, which is a good omen coming into tonight's match.

The Gunners just missed out on top spot in their group, finishing on equal points with Borussia Dortmund, but they were pretty lucky in the draw for the knockout stages. There probably wasn't an easier opponent from the group winners than Monaco.

The French have been depending on their tight defence all season, which has kept a clean sheet a staggering 14 times in their last 18 matches, although tonight's opponents are a class above.

Unlike their water-tight defence, their attacking play is severely lacking and scoring will be a massive problem for them tonight.

The two sides have met once before this season, when Monaco won 0-1 in the Emirates Cup friendly tournament.

Everything is pointing towards a tightly contested defensively minded encounter, the most likely result being that Arsenal just manage to snatch a win. Let's try a one-goal victory for Arsenal!

Our picks:

under 2,5 goals: 7/10  Unibet

Arsenal -1 X: 13/5 Unibet

Bayer Leverkusen - Atletico Madrid

Bayer Leverkusen's current form is worrying, as they face an Atletico Madrid side who have risen up among the elite in Europe in recent years.

Sixth in the Bundesliga, Bayer have won only once in their last six matches even though their opposition hasn't been particularly tough or even close to the level of tonight's visitors.

The Germans have managed to come up triumphant nearly every time they've been flagged as favourites, but against tougher sides they generally seem to capitulate rather unconvincingly in Europe or the Bundesliga. In their group 'Kusen finished second after losing twice to eventual group winners Monaco.

In previous years teams like Manchester United, PSG and Barcelona have all collected easy wins against the Germans.

Atletico are a class or maybe even two above their German counterparts, showing their quality in finishing in top spot in their group that was one of the toughest in the competition, containing the likes of Juventus and Olympiacos. 

The Madrid side's away form isn't utterly convincing, but you have to take into account the fact that they've twice faced Barcelona at the Camp Nou recently.

The visitors will want to get an away goal or two to the Vicente Calderon, which should be enough to beat Leverkusen tonight. The odds for Atleti look great, so let's take a shot!

Our picks:

Atletico Madrid 7/4 @Bet365

Atletico Madrid +0,5: 1.425 @Bet365
