There are important matches in the Champions League on Tuesday, so let's preview the action and provide betting tips.

<h2 style="text-align:center">Liverpool vs Bayern Munich</h2><p>Liverpool’s huge attacking firepower should be the key to this 2-legged match. The hosts are leading the chase for their domestic league title being equal on points with Manchester City but having a game in hand on the leaders. On the other side Bayern Munich enter this match without a number of their most important players. Thomas Muller is suspended, Corentin Tolisso and Arjen Robben are both injured, Jerome Boateng is ruled out with a stomach flu, Franck Ribery became a father last weekend and Kingsley Coman is doubtful after limping off in Friday’s last Bundesliga match away at Augsburg. Niko Kovac was forced to call some young players from the U21 team, players with no Champions League experience like Lars Lukas Mai, Maxime Awoudja, Christian Fruchtl, Alphonso Davies, Meritan Shabani and Jeong Woo-yeong. We still expect the Bavarians to score in this match as Jurgen Klopp will be without the best defender Virgil van Dijk. The host know how important is to win the 1st leg in front of their fans and they will give everything to approach the 2nd leg with an important win. The visitors are determined to score an away goal which might give them a huge advantage in the 2nd leg. We expect a exciting match full of scoring opportunities from both sides.</p><p><strong>Best tip for the match:</strong> Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals in the match at 1.83 with <a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top Rated Sportsbook">Bet365</a>.</p><p> </p><h2 style="text-align:center">Lyon vs Barcelona</h2><p>The Spanish giants will travel to play Lyon on Tuesday for what promises to be a high-scoring affair and a thrilling match. The hosts were the surprise package of the group stages, being unbeaten in 6 matches and managing to win 4 points against the Premier League reigning champs and Champions League favourites, Manchester City. This is the 1st time in 7 seasons that the French side have reached the knock-out stage. On the other side, Barcelona finally bounced back are 3 winless La Liga matches winning at home last weekend 1-0 against Real Valladolid without impressing. Lyon are huge underdogs in this match being priced at 15/4 (4.75) but Barcelona have only won 3 of their 10 Champions League away matches. Very important to know is that Lyon will be without one of their best players, striker Nabil Fekir who’s in fine form this season, scoring 3 goals in the group stage. We expect a high-scoring affair with the host having the necessary weapons to contribute on the scoreboard.</p><p><strong>Best tip for the match:</strong> Over 3 goals Asian Handicap at 1.80 with <a href=";a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top Rated Sportsbook">Unibet</a></p>
