Galatasary host Real Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie, knowing that they need a minor miracle if they are make the semi-final.
Real Madrid are favourites to win the match at 8/11, Galatasary can be backed at 7/2, whilst the draw is priced at 11/4. All odds quoted are available with Ladbrokes.
Following Real’s convincing 3-0 first leg victory, the tie is all but over with Galatasary needing to at least match that scoreline to have any chance of progressing to the next round. Realistically the Turkish side need to find a way to stop Madrid scoring, but that seems very unlikely. Galatasary have kept just two clean sheets in their last 12 home matches in all competitions.
A betting angle for this match is to take advantage of a fantastic money-back special offer from Ladbrokes, who will refund losing First Goalscorer bets if Cristiano Ronaldo scores the first or last goal of the game. There are some superb first goalscorer prices available with Ladbrokes, notably 7/1 for Didier Drogba, 5/1 for Karim Benzema and also 5/1 for Gonzalo Higuain.
Higuain is the player we like at the prices to net the first goal, and the 5/1 on offer is certainly worth a bet.
