Champions League 2018/19: Real Madrid v Ajax & Dortmund v Spurs Tips

- 11:03, 4th March 2019
Son Heung-min looks to continue his strong form against Dortmund in the Champions League this week.

With all but one of the eight games to play in the last-16 still hanging in the balance, the Champions League action over the next two weeks will be an exciting prospect.

Real Madrid host Ajax with the defending Champions ahead 2-1 with away goals on their side while Spurs travel to Dortmund out-of-form but with a 3-0 lead and an almost certainty of booking their place in the next round this Tuesday.

Our man Jonathon Hague assess the chances of all four sides playing on Tuesday going through to the quarter-finals by going through the Champions League odds

Real Madrid v Ajax

(Tues, 20:00)

Real Madrid to win and Both Teams to Score @ 7/4 – BET NOW

Tuesday’s match against Ajax will be a test of Real Madrid’s metal after three consecutive losses at home for the first time in 15 years – including the loss of two consecutive El Clasico within a week both at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Of course, Los Blancos are seasoned veterans in the Champions League, but Santiago Solari has yet to fully convince at Real Madrid manager and the past month has proved that they are far from the finished article.

The absence of captain Sergio Ramos will be huge as Real Madrid have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last seven matches in all competitions.

The Spaniard is serving a two match European ban for deliberately picking up a booking in the first-leg in Amsterdam last month.

This talented Ajax team have a lot to be proud of – the former European giants entered the competition at the first qualifying round back in August and have reached the last-16 stage for the first time since 2005/06.

The Dutch side are big scorers and have netted 82 times in 23 league matches this season and 11 times in the Champions League.

History and the bookies see a Real Madrid win regardless, but the betting value had to be in add both teams to score to a Los Blancos win.

For all their heroics this season, it’s hard to see Ajax toppling the 12-time European Champions, but backing them to score isn’t a difficult decision when the best-price offered in our odds grids is 7/4 for a Real Madrid win and both teams to score.

Dortmund v Tottenham

(Tues, 20:00)

Spurs to win @ 11/4 – BET NOW

After a convincing win against Dortmund at Wembley back in February, Spurs’ form has dipped with back-to-back losses against Chelsea and Burnley and then this weekend’s 1-1 draw against Arsenal.

With the title race now and truly nothing more than pipedream, Spurs can fully concentrate on progressing as far as possible through the Champions League knockout stages.

Luckily for them, Borussia Dortmund are in the midst of a poor run of results themselves. While still maintaining their slot at the top of the Bundesliga tree, BVB have only won once in their last five matches and are now level on points with Bayern Munich – who by all accounts are having a mediocre season by their standards.

In fact, Dortmund have only won twice in their last eight matches across all competitions.

Spurs' Champions League record in their last four games is strong despite their recent slump in form. After a terrible start to their Group Stage campaign, Tottenham pulled off a second-place finish with wins against PSV and Inter Milan and a draw against Barcelona at the Camp Nou.

A Spurs win looks like decent value all things considered at 11/4 in what will be a closely fought tie. If there was ever a time to play Dortmund, it would be now as the domestic action looks to be the biggest focus as the Bundesliga title race narrows.
