We were treated to some excellent football in the Champions League quarter-finals first legs last week and there is still a lot to play for in the second legs.

Here is all you need to know about this week’s fixtures.

Napoli v AC Milan (0-1)

Where: Diego Armando Maradona Stadium, Naples

When: Tuesday 18 April, 8pm

TV: BT Sport 2

Betfred odds: Over 2.5 goals is 11/10

AC Milan have a one-goal advantage over Napoli heading into the second leg. Ismael Bennacer was the scorer while Napoli later had Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa sent off, ruling him out of the home leg. Napoli’s star striker Victor Osimhen was not involved in the match and question marks remain whether he will be involved on Tuesday as his goals have been crucial to his side this season.


Chelsea v Real Madrid (0-2)

Where: Stamford Bridge, London

When: Tuesday 18 April, 8pm

TV: BT Sport 1

Betfred odds: Vinicius Jr to score anytime is 13/5

Chelsea have got a lot of work to do in the second leg after going two goals down in Madrid thanks to Karim Benzema and Marco Asensio. Things got worse for Frank Lampard’s side when Ben Chilwell was shown a straight red card for a challenge on Rodrygo. Los Blancos showed once again why they are the club with the most titles in this grand competition and while it seems that the La Liga title is out of their grasp, the fans would be elated with a 15th Champions League title.


Inter Milan v Benfica (2-0)

Where: San Siro, Milan

When: Wednesday 19 April, 8pm

TV: BT Sport 2

Betfred odds: Over 1.5 Inter Milan goals is 11/10

Given how strong Benfica have been this season both at home and in Europe, it was surprising to see Inter record a 2-0 win in Lisbon as Nicolas Barella and Romelu Lukaku put the Italian giants in the driving seat for the home leg at San Siro. With bitter rivals AC Milan currently having the advantage over Serie A leader Napoli heading into the second leg of their tie, the thought of a Milan derby in the Champions League semi-finals is on the cusp of becoming a reality.

Bayern Munich v Manchester City (0-3)

Where: Allianz Arena, Munich

When: Wednesday 19 April, 8pm

TV: BT Sport 1

Betfred odds: Over 1.5 Bayern Munich goals is EVS

A defensive collapse at the Etihad Stadium last week saw Bayern Munich fall three goals behind in their tie with Manchester City. Two goals in the space of seven minutes in the second half took the game away from the German giants after they had a promising first half in which they created a lot of really good chances. 

Things worsened after the game when it was reported that Sadio Mane punched Leroy Sane after the pair had an argument, with the former being hit with a fine and suspension by his employers. Thomas Tuchel has got his work cut out to pull this tie back from a seemingly unrecoverable position in Munich, but this team certainly has the firepower to pull off an incredible comeback. If they were to score early, a dramatic night could be in store.
