Son to rise again

Wednesday is a huge night in the Champions League with the Manchester City v Tottenham quarter-final taking centre stage. We pick out the best bets.

Manchester City v Tottenham looks perfectly set up after Spurs’ 1-0 win in the first leg with the away-goals rule making this game an intriguing prospect.

Spurs have scored in 45 of their 49 games this season and if they find the net in this one, City will need three to keep their Quadruple dream alive.

Heung-min Son to score at anytime in Man City v Spurs @ 3/1

Spurs will have to do so without injured top scorer Harry Kane, although the stats show they actually have a better win percentage when he’s not in the side.

Heung-min Son has scored nine goals in the 10 games he’s played this season without Kane in the team and he looks the value pick in the goalscorer markets – 3/1 to score at any time, as he did in the first leg.

Pep Guardiola has predicted a more “intense” performance from his side, “especially with the ball”, after admitting City deliberately went with a more controlled approach in the first game.

Goal scored in the 1st 15 minutes of Man City v Spurs @ 7/4

It may pay to remember how City swamped Liverpool at this stage of last season’s competition in a bid to overturn a 3-0 deficit and were unlucky with a goal wrongly disallowed and a stonewall penalty not given.

A goal in the first 15 minutes of this one is worth considering at 7/4.

The other game taking place on Wednesday sees Liverpool head to Porto leading 2-0 from the first leg.

The Reds were superior in almost every department at Anfield and an away goal from them will make this an almost impossible task for their hosts.

First half to have the most goals in Porto v Liverpool @ 39/20

Porto were rather caught in the headlights by Liverpool’s fast start last week and although they will be better prepared this time around, stopping the likes of Sadio Mane – eight goals in nine games – and Mo Salah is easier said than done.

The best angle for the game looks to be for there to be more goals in the first half – a 39/20 shot.

It wouldn’t be a surprise to see Liverpool get ahead fairly early and if they do, Porto’s hopes look up. Both sides could then start thinking about their respective weekend fixtures – both are involved in nail-biting title races.

The second half could become rather drab and so backing the first period in the market looks to offer some value.
