24.2. UCL Betting Preview:

Manchester City - Barcelona

Manchester City again failed to get an easy draw in the knockout-stages, as they yet again face Spanish giants FC Barcelona, who they lost to last year at the same stage.

City come in to the match on the back of a impressive 5-0 thrashing of Newcastle at the Etihad Stadium. They also slimmed Chelsea's lead by two points, which gave the whole club a boost.

Elsewhere, Barcelona surprisingly succumbed to a 0-1 defeat to Malaga, which means that Real Madrid opened up a small gap in the league, although this might mean that they already had one eye on tonight's CL encounter.

City's Etihad Stadium is usually a fortress, but at the start of the month they lost to both Arsenal and Middlesborough and Hull forced them to a draw. The weekend's Newcastle win will have given their confidence a boost.

Barcelona on the other hand have been really strong away and have only lost three times all season away from the Camp Nou.

City manager Manuel Pellegrini has already said that City won't park the bus but try and beat Barcelona by attacking while establishing a healthy lead going into the return tie.

This should open up chances for Barcelona's devastatingly effective attacking players, who would give their left arm for an away goal. We're expecting a tight, high-scoring match.

Juventus - Dortmund

After last season's disappointing Europa League semi-final exit in front of their home crowd, Juventus want a long Champions League run. The draw brought a Dortmund side who have struggled enormously in the Bundesliga this season.

The Serie A reigning champions have usually been in great form in Turin. They've won 7 home games in a row in the Champions League and the Old Lady is on a 21 game unbeaten run in all competitions at home.

Jurgen Klopp has had a lot to ponder this season, as his usually high-flying Dortmund side have been awful in the league. At their worst they were last in the Bundesliga, but after three wins in a row they've climbed out of the relegation places. The gap to a CL-spot for next season is only 12 points away, but to reach that it would take a great rest of the season.

In the Champions League they've managed to play at their own level, reaching the knockout-stages as group winners losing only to Arsenal in the process.

Both teams have healthy squads, as Juve are only missing Luca Marrone and Dortmund Kevin Grosskreutz.

Juve's defence is among the elite in the world, but their forwards are also big names. At home they will want to get a healthy lead before travelling to Germany and we place are faith in the home favourites.
