The Acca pays approximately 11/4

Old Lady to canter to victory on Ladies Day

Bet 1: Back Juventus @ 4/11 - KO 17:00 GMT

Yes it's Ladies Day at Cheltenham and here is the lowdown on Paul Nicholls' runners from the horses mouth.

Juventus are back in the driving seat in Italy as they are a point ahead of Napoli with this game in hand to play. It should be a fairly routine victory for the reigning champions as they come into the fixture in scintillating form.

The Turin based club have won 11 in a row in the league and they also knocked Spurs out of Europe to progress through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Atalanta ended a run of five without victory in all competitions by winning 1-0 at Bologna on Sunday and while they have a decent record on their travels this term, this should prove beyond them.

Class to tell in the Nou Camp

Bet 2: Back Barcelona @ 4/9 - KO 19:45 GMT

Jack Lang has covered this match in more detail but he also fancies a Barca victory.

After performing so well in the group stages, the English teams are falling by the wayside in the last 16. Tottenham and Manchester United are already out, and Chelsea look set to join them.

The Blues managed a 1-1 draw in the first leg at Stamford Bridge, but they then followed that up with defeats at the two Manchester clubs, before edging out Crystal Palace at home on Saturday.

Antonio Conte's side just aren't in the kind of form required to get a result at Barcelona and the hosts have conceded just two goals in their last 11 in front of their own fans.

Latics to take goals to Valley Parade

Bet 3: Back BTTS in Bradford v Wigan @ 9/10 - KO 19:45 GMT

These two teams are battling for promotion - Bradford via the play-offs and Wigan for automatic. The pair of them have dropped plenty of points of late, so they really need to win this evening, and that usually points to goals at both ends.

The stats are in our favour anyway in that regard as six of the Bantam's last seven at home have seen this selection land and the same can be said for eight of Wigan's last 11 on the road - including their three latest outings.

It's also worth noting that the reverse fixture in November finished 2-1 to Bradford, with the score being 1-1 after 24 minutes.
