Madrid beat Liverpool in the final three years ago but the following season Jurgen Klopp's men won European club football's biggest prize and they are 1.674/6 to qualify from this tie.

Key Stat: Liverpool have lost each of their last three games against Real Madrid in the Champions League.

Mark O'Haire says: "Stylistically, Los Blancos don't have the capacity to match Liverpool's press and probe approach and therefore we're unlikely to see this first leg fixture burst into a basketball-style shootout."

Tip: Back Liverpool Double Chance and Under 3.5 goals @ 1.9620/21

Porto v Chelsea: Say 'no' to both teams to score

Chelsea are 1.330/100 to qualify from this tie but they would be unwise to underestimate their Portuguese opponents who knocked out Juventus in the previous round.

Key Stat: Since winning the UEFA Champions League in 2003-04, FC Porto have only won one of their six games in the competition at the quarter-final stage (D1 L4).

Jamie Pacheco says: "I wouldn't be surprised if Chelsea focus on keeping things tight, while Porto consider 0-0 a decent result with away goals coming into play for the second leg."."

Tip: Back 'no' in both teams to score @ 1.910/11

Key Stat: Paris SG have only failed to score in one of their last 43 games in the UEFA Champions League, with that coming in a 0-1 defeat in last season's final.

James Eastham says:"There are other players in the home ranks that can score, but the absence of Robert Lewandowski is bound to make Bayern more predictable in the opposition half."

Tip: Back under 3.0 Goals @ 2.01/1
