Barcelona, Juventus and Derby in sensational 6/1 special

| 24.02.2015

Coral are offering a sensational 6/1 special on Tuesday night, for all of Barcelona, Juventus and Derby County to win their respective Champions League last 16 first leg and Championship fixtures.

Catalan giants Barca travel to Manchester City, Turin titans Juve host Borussia Dortmund and the Rams, who top the English second-tier table, welcome Charlton Athletic.

This trio are all favourites to win their matches, and here are more reasons to back this brilliant bet…

Man City v Barcelona
City have never beaten Barca in two attempts, and lost 2-0 to them at the Etihad at this same stage last season. You can back the Spanish giants at 23/20 (favourites) for victory again, and 11/1 by that same scoreline.

Lionel Messi and Dani Alves were on target in both fixtures last season against the Citizens, and are respective 10/11 and 12/1 chances to net again anytime.

Man City will also be without star midfielder and former Barca boy Yaya Toure for this crunch clash, which will be a huge hindrance to the club, who have win just two of their last seven games in all competitions.

Juventus v Borussia Dortmund
Dortmund have simply had a terrible season so far, and occupied the bottom of the Bundesliga as recently as Christmas. They have also lost three of their five head-to-heads with Juve, which is why the Serie A leaders are 21/10 favourites to beat them again.

Back former Premier League star Carlos Tevez and brilliant Basque target man Fernando Llorente to net anytime at 6/4 and 7/4 respectively.

Derby v Charlton
Steve McClaren’s men are flying high in the Championship this term, as they currently top the table by two points. They are 13 places and 23 points ahead of the Addicks, and are odds-on at 4/9 for victory.

Derby beat Charlton 1-0 at home in the Capital One Cup this term, and are 13/2 chances to defeat them by that scoreline once more.
