The UEFA Champions League quarterfinal second legs take place this week. And while Barcelona are all but home and dry against French champions Paris Saint-Germain, the outcomes of the other three ties remain intriguingly in the balance, including Bayern Munich-FC Porto, Real Madrid-Atletico Madrid and Monaco-Juventus.
After seven winners and only three losers from his last 12 picks on the competition, handicapper James Eastham offers up value picks for all four UCL fixtures taking place this week.
Barcelona (home) vs. PSG
Asian handicap: Barcelona -1.5 (+106) vs. PSG +1.5 (-113) 3-way line: Barcelona -246 / PSG +682 / Draw +453 Total: 3.25 (Over -112, Under +103)
Barcelona go into the second leg with a commanding 3-1 lead, so the Catalans' place in the semifinals looks virtually assured. PSG were outclassed last week and will need to raise their game to avoid defeat this week -- although the fact that Barcelona can afford to lose by one and possibly two goals and still go through increases PSG's chances of obtaining a face-saving result on the night.
