Bet UEFA Champions League Saturday: Miller picks Bayern Munich vs Chelsea and Barcelona vs Napoli and bets Messi will score
Tournament favorite Bayern Munich looks to join UEFA Champions League quarterfinals
There seems to be two clear favorites to win the UEFA Champions League in Lisbon.
One, Manchester City, is already into next week’s quarterfinals, where it will face shock side Lyon. The other, Bayern Munich, looks to be on a semifinal collision course with the Cityzens, after a 3-0 win in the first leg against Chelsea.
Bayern is all but in the next round, and may hammer the Blues Saturday. But what about the other contest?
In the BallStreet Trading/Bettors Insider Match of the Day, Barcelona comes home to the Camp Nou tied 1-1 with Napoli. Lionel Messi can all but see his empire crumbling right in front of his face, but will hope for one last ride to a final. Messi is as close to even money as you will get in this round, and really is a must bet to score in a must-win game.
Barcelona should find a way past Napoli thanks to Messi, but that may be where its run ends, with Bayern Munich waiting in the wings next week.
