Liverpool were incredible in the quarter-finals, beating the Premier League champions Manchester City in both legs. They are among the best European teams this season under Jurgen Klopp, having an attacking philosophy, great depth, pressing high, recovering the ball in the opposition half and creating many scoring opportunities. Their attacking trio of Mo Salah (who won the PFA Player of the Year award Sunday), Firmino and Mane are on fire, scoring goals for fun and being deadly on the break. This spectacular and efficient football style will offer them huge advantage in the 1st home leg as they are playing in front of their fans who are creating a brilliant atmosphere at Anfield. AS Roma have pulled-off a huge upset knocking-out Barcelona overcoming the 4-1 defeat from the 1st leg and winning 3-0 on their turf. Despite coaching a top side for the 1st time in his career, Roma’s Eusebio di Francesco demonstrated once again is a master mind coaching style, enjoying a stunning European season with his club. He created a strong team, rock-solid in their defense, well organized and very productive in the attack, playing a modern football. It’s very important for Liverpool to win this clash and keep a clean sheet but they should be very careful because AS Roma are a smart side, speculating their opponent’s defensive mistakes. AS Roma scored in 4 of their 5 Champions League away fixtures. <strong>Best pick for the match:</strong> Liverpool to win and "over" 2.5 goals in the match at 2.1 with Coral.<p></p><p>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nhum4DA3wVM&amp;feature=youtu.be </p><p style="text-align:center"><strong>Bayern Munich vs. Real Madrid:</strong></p> The German giants have dominated their domestic league, winning the trophy with many rounds before the end of the season. They’ve destroyed their opposition in Champions League all the way through the semi-finals showing great skills, being aggressive and looking determined to win another UCL trophy. Real Madrid’s Zinedine Zidane is a great coach with huge qualities. He created an impressive team, efficient all over the pitch, performing at the highest levels and showing outstanding qualities in all the fields. Bayern Munich are a phenomenal side when playing in front of their fans being unbeaten all season long in Bundesliga or Champions League. They are fully motivated to revenge last year’s quarter-finals result when they were knocked out by Real Madrid. We expect an intense tie, a tactical battle between the 2 brilliant managers. Real Madrid will try to impose their rhythm and have the possession trying to take advantage of their amazing midfield with Kroos, Modric, Casemiro and Isco. The Champions League top scorer, Cristiano Ronaldo will definitely try to add at least one more goal to his tally and help his side to win the trophy for the 3rd consecutive year. He is priced at 2.15 to be anytime goalscorer which is a decent price if you are searching for a good prop bet. <strong>Best pick for the match:</strong> Bayern Munich to win at 2.05 with BetVictor.<p></p>
