Bayern Munich has looked very strong recently and is seeking its sixth Champions League semifinals appearance in the last seven seasons. They enter this match full of confidence after winning the first leg on the road 2-1 last week and being crowned Bundesliga champions for the sixth consecutive time after beating Augsburg last weekend in their domestic league. Now they will focus 100 percent on Champions League matches and try to win another trophy and end their season in style. The German giants will be aware that Sevilla beat Manchester United on the road in the last knockout round to book their quarterfinal tickets. Their two away goals are crucial for this tie and they have the upper hand as they get ready to face the La Liga side on Wednesday. They will be without some important players -- including David Alaba, Kingsley Coman and Arturo Vidal -- but they are still the better side and should be able to win this clash. They’ve won all their UCL home matches this season, scoring 14 goals in the process and conceding just one, keeping three clean sheets from their four fixtures in front of their fans. With your soccer picks, everything points to a home win but the odds for such an outcome are low, with Bayern Munich being priced at -400 with Pinnacle to win the game.

Best pick for the match: Bayern Munich to win and "under" 4.5 goals in the match at -136 with PaddyPower.

Real Madrid vs. Juventus

It’s tough to imagine that Juventus can pull off a miracle recovery and overcome the 0-3 defeat from their turf and earn a spot in the UCL semifinals. Reigning champion Real Madrid is likely to continue its brilliant Champions League season, easily qualify further and fight to win their third UCL in a row. Once again Cristiano Ronaldo was out of this world, solving the match on his own, writing history and showing that he is an amazing player with special qualities. He scored with a magnificent bicycle kick to leave Gianluigi Buffon, one of the world's best goalkeepers, frozen in his spot. Juventus has won just two of its Champions League away matches this season. They will be without one of their star players, Paulo Dybala, who was red-carded in the first leg, so Massimiliano Allegri will be forced to play Mario Mandzukic and Gonzalo Higuain in the attack. Los Blancos have lost only one of their 32 two-legged European ties after winning the first leg on the road. Ronaldo has scored nine goals in his nine head-to-heads against Juventus. He netted 15 goals this Champions League season, the first player in the history to score in all matches. On the soccer odds board he is priced at -113 to be anytime goalscorer and we believe that bet has huge value. Juventus should be able to contribute on the scoreboard and try their best to revenge the first-leg defeat. We expect a high-scoring affair with both teams finding the back of the net and at least three goals in the match.

Best pick for the match: Both teams to score and "over" 2.5 goals at -105 with Coral.
