The Champions League roars back into action tonight with the opening legs of the first quarter-finals.

Juventus host Real Madrid in a repeat of last season’s final, while Sevilla welcome Bayern Munich to Spain.

Here are the best bets, tips and odds for this evening’s action…

Juventus v Real Madrid

After a scare against Tottenham Hotspur, Juventus should have a bit more savvy about them when they welcome Real Madrid to Turin.

The Old Lady come into this one unbeaten in 25 games, and they’re 11/10 on the Draw No Bet.

Juve have kept 21 clean sheets in that time, but now they face a resurgent Real.

Zinedine Zidane’s men have won their last five in all competitions, scoring 16 times. Both teams to score tonight is 4/5 while a score draw is 10/3.

Cristiano Ronaldo is 7/2 favourite to score first, and the Portuguese star is in form after netting 17 goals in his last eight club games.

Paulo Dybala has five in six for Juve and the Argentine is 9/2 to open the scoring this evening.

Sevilla v Bayern Munich

Sevilla may be only seventh in La Liga, but they displayed all of their potential by holding Barcelona to a 2-2 draw on Saturday in a game they arguably should have won comfortably.

So that will be plenty of warning to Bayern Munich. The Bundesliga champions will be massively confident however, after thrashing rivals Borussia Dortmund 6-0 at the weekend.

That result goes a long way to explaining the 4/7 on offer for Bayern to win tonight.

Each of Sevilla’s last three games have seen both teams net and over 2.5 goals scored.  There’s 4/6 on both teams to score again tonight, with 8/13 available for over 2.5 to come in again.

Our traders are 2/1 about Munich to win and both teams to score.

Bayern were 5-0 up by half-time in their Dortmund trouncing. Jupp Heynckes’ side are 23/20 to win the first half.

Robert Lewandowski helped himself to a hat-trick in that game. The Polish hotshot is 13/5 favourite to break the deadlock and 3/1 to net twice or more.
