Daily Acca tips: Juventus, Villa and Fulham fancied tonight
Who do you fancy to win?
Tuesday football sees the first of the hotly-anticipated Champions League quarter-finals.
Juventus take on Real Madrid in a repeat of last year’s final, while Sevilla host Bayern Munich.
That top quality pair is supplemented by some huge games at the sharp end of the Championship.
The Coral News Team pick out five potential victors…
Real Madrid have performed far better in the Champions League than they have in domestic action this season.
But they face a mightily tough tussle when they head to Juventus – Max Allegri’s side have lost just two home games in the competition since 2004.
Zinedine Zidane’s men romped to a 4-1 victory when these two met in last season’s final, and Juve will be out to avenge that defeat tonight.
Some say Bayern lucked in with a quarter-final tie against Sevilla. The 2001 champions avoided Barcelona and Manchester City.
Sevilla are as experienced as anyone in European competition, and they knocked Manchester United out in the previous round.
But Bayern are a different level altogether, and Jupp Heynckes’ men will be out to steal a first-leg advantage.
Aston Villa are heading for the play-offs after defeats to Queens Park Rangers and Bolton Wanderers last month all-but ended their automatic promotion hopes.
But they can keep up the pressure on the top two by seeing off Reading tonight.
The Royals parted company with Jaap Stam last month and Paul Clement has come in, but they could struggle with Villa losing just three of their last 26 home games.
Fulham have been flying since November, but it seems that points dropped in the opening months will cost them a spot in the top two.
But they can keep up their recent form when they host Leeds United.
Fulham have been sensational at Craven Cottage lately. They’ve won nine and drawn one of their last 10, keeping seven clean sheets.
Wolverhampton Wanderers still have some work to do if they want to win the Championship.
Cardiff, Fulham and Aston Villa could all muster a challenge in the final weeks, but Nuno Espirito Santo’s men should see off Hull City this evening.
The Molineux outfit have lost only one of their last 17 on home soil, with the visiting Tigers collecting just three away wins all season.
