UEFA Champions League: Roma v Manchester United, Schalke v Barcelona

UEFA Champions League: Roma v Manchester United, Schalke v Barcelona Only a few hours away from the Tuesday's UEFA Champions League games Roma vs. Manchester United and Schalke 04 vs. Barcelona, and we have the best odds on the football games offered by the reputable British online bookmakers. At the U.K. licensed bookmaker Bet365 (official website, live betting available), the punters are offered a great payout, no matter which team they choose tonight. Let's look at the Champions League quarterfinal games today in more depth. Starting with the Roma vs. Manchester United game, likely the most bet on UEFA Champions League game today in the U.K. British fans would be hardly disappointed to see Manchester Utd as the favorite team to win the first leg of the quarterfinals, at Bet365 the Red Devils are sitting on odds to win the game of 2.40 (7/5), while the hosts from Roma are underdog with odds 3.25 (9/4) and 3.00 (2/1) would be the payout for a draw. Bettors are encouraged to pair their first leg Champions League quarterfinal bet with the antepost to win the UEFA Champions League outright, where Manchester Untied are second favorite to win the football competition with odds 3/1 and AS Roma is underdog with odds 11/1. Keep in mind that Roma top scorer Francesco Totti has been ruled out of Tuesday's Champions League quarter-final first leg after suffering a thigh injury on Saturday, while Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar looks set to return after a groin injury.

 Quickly moving to the second UEFA Champions League game today, the matchup Schalke 04 vs. Barcelona. Even though the game is perceived by the British bookies as David vs. Goliath (Barcelona is the favorite to win the Champions League at Bet365 with odds 11/4 and Schalke is underdog with odds 50/1), punters still stand a good chance to make money with either of the two contenders. Barcelona is the likely squad to win the Tuesday's Champions League game, but Barca would still pay out on 2.20 (6/5) odds, while a victory by Schalke 04 would deliver on odds 3.40 (12/5) to anyone betting on the German team. As far as team condition, Schalke midfielder Ivan Rakitic has been ruled out of Tuesday's Champions League quarter-final first leg because of an ankle injury, but at Barcelona Lionel Messi, Deco and Ronaldinho are all ruled out for the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinal game today.
