UCL Round of 16 Feature Previews

Wednesday

Bayern Munich v Besiktas – (Wed 6:45am)
This one shapes as a complete mismatch! Bayern Munich have lost just once since September and have won 12 straight across all competitions. Besiktas on the other hand have won just 2 of their last 8 away games across all competitions. They managed to win what was the most open group and it has been several seasons since they have faced an opponent with the quality of Bayern. The German champions have been tearing sides to shreds at Allianz Arena. They have 14 wins and a draw in their last 15 competitive matches at home and have scored multiple goals in all but one of those matches. Bayern have quality across the park and are back to their attacking best with Ribery and Robben supporting Lewandowski. Muller and James will provide the creativity while Vidal will relish in the box to box role. Bayern will want to put this one to bed in the first leg and The Wolf says they will be doing exactly that.
Best: Bayern Munich Over 2.5 goals ($1.60)
Value: Bayern Munich Over 4.5 goals ($4.60)

Chelsea v Barcelona – (Wed 6:45am)
It is not common for us to refer to Barcelona as a successful defensive unit but it has become their mantra under Valverde. They have conceded just 2 goals in their last 8 games across all competitions  and in what will seem like a shock, have not find the back of the net more than twice in their last 8 outings. Barca will know that any result at Stamford Bridge will put them in the box seat for the return leg. The Catalan club are no strangers to the venue with the two sides have clashed 12 times in this competition in the past – many of which have been in the knockout stages. The Unders is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings with Barca failing to score in 2 of their last 3 trips to the Bridge. Conte is infamous for his defensive tactics and The Wolf will be riding them all the way to the bank. 
Best: Under 2.5 goals ($2.00)
Value: Draw ($3.40)

Thursday

Sevilla v Man Utd – (Thur 6:45am)
United have had their troubles away from home in this competition. They have won just 4 of their last 14 UCL away matches in a stretch that includes losses away to Basel, Wolfburg, PSV, Olympiacos and Galatasaray. Currently they are having troubles in attack and that spells trouble against a side that has had huge success in the home and away format. They have won the Europa League in 3 of the last 4 seasons and have consistently finished in the upper echelon in Spain’s La Liga. They have lost just 1 of their last 9 at home in this competition and have scored multiple goals in the last 5. With the likes of Banega and Nolito defence is not an option. If Mourinho thinks he is going to go there and park the bus he can think again. 
Best: Over 2.5 goals ($2.10)
Value: Sevilla Over 1.5 goals ($2.85)

Shakhtar v Roma – (Thur 6:45am)
This is the most open tie in the Round of 16 matches and The Wolf is more than happy to lay Roma despite Shakhtar coming off a winter break. They made a winning return with a 5-0 thumping of Chornomorets and deserve credit for qualifying for the knockout stages from a group that included Man City and Napoli. They won all 3 of their home matches in the group stage with Real Madrid and PSG the only two sides to beat them in a 10 game stretch at home. Shakhtar will be fully aware that they need to win this match. They have failed to score in 6 of their last 7 away UCL matches making it critical that they take a lead with them to Rome. They will turn to Ferreyra and Marlos for goals with the Brazilian contingent of Bernard, Fred and Taison to add the creativity. Shakhtar to take a lead to Rome but the Italian side to grab a crucial away goal. 
Best: Both Teams To Score – YES ($1.72)
Value: Over 2.5 goals & Shakhtar WIN ($3.75)
