Best pick for the match: Manchester United to win at +160 (Unibet)

Prop bet: Alexis Sanchez to be anytime goalscorer at +220 (PaddyPower)

The Red Devils face Sevilla in Champions League 1st on Wednesday at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium. They are preparing to play their first match in the UCL knockout stages since 2014, and hopefully for them their recent form will not affect them. Europa League reigning champion Manchester United will be looking to make the most of this away match and approach the second leg with a positive result. They have a great record on Spanish soil, losing just one of their last visits. United lost 0-1 at Newcastle in their previous Premier League game but immediately bounced back and won their FA Cup match 2-0 last weekend against Huddersfield. They signed Chilean superstar Alexis Sanchez in the January transfer window, and he is eligible to be play in the Champions League knockout stages.

The hosts have never reached the quarterfinals and we expect them to have the same fate in this double-legged match. They are sitting fifth in the Spanish top-flight league but they have the worst attack in the top 10 teams with just 31 goals scored in 24 rounds. Vincenzo Montella will be without one of his most important players as Ever Banega has a thigh injury, but Nolito is back in training and he might be 100 percent fit for this clash. Check the options on the Champions League odds board, but with your soccer picks we think United’s quality and experience should be enough to win them the match and get them through this tie.

Shakhtar Donetsk vs. AS Roma

Best pick for the match: Both teams to score at -117 (Betfair)

Prop bet: Correct score 1-1 at +550 (Betfair)

The Italian team bounced back from their seven winless matches in all competitions to win their last three Serie A games and secure third place in the standings. They have a tough task when they travel to play against Shakhtar Donetsk. Let’s not forget that the Ukrainian side was the first team this season to beat Premier League leader Manchester City, 2-1 in the last UCL group stage match, and they qualified in the knockout stages as runners-up in their group.

The hosts are six points clear at the top of their domestic league and their only problem seems to be the lack of competitive matches; they played just one league game since December 10. The weather in Ukraine is not soccer’s best friend and AS Roma’s players will surely struggle with that. Both sides will be eager to improve their Round of 16 Champions League record and qualify further in the quarterfinals. We expect a thrilling match with both teams contributing on the scoreboard, so we will skip the “winners market” on the Champions League odds board and focus on the “goals market” for our soccer picks.
