Sportingbet, our official betting partners, give us the rundown on some of the markets on offer ahead of our Champions League quarter-final second leg with Real Madrid...

The glamour tie may have lost some of its appeal ahead of Wednesday’s second leg, but are you backing Spurs to salvage some pride from their Real Madrid encounter?

Last Tuesday was a tough night for Tottenham Hotspur, but under the lights at White Hart Lane, the North Londoners are 6/4 to win on the night.

The Special One and company remain narrow favourites at 29/20 but should they choose to rest on their cushion, the home side could yet inflict another shock before the curtain falls on their Champions League debut. And even the 12/5 draw would warrant some credit against the new gálacticos.

Harry Redknapp has promised to give the mission impossible “one hell of a go”, and while the 33/1 on Spurs To Qualify takes a leap of faith, that could at least mean goals on show to bolster entertainment and betting value alike.

Over 3.5 Goals pays 33/20 and if you see the floodgates opening, how about 4/1 on Over 4.5? Alternatively, if you see Los Blancos shutting up shop in true Mourinho style, Under 2.5 Goals might be the more appealing bet at 6/5.

Aaron Lennon could return to the fold and the tricky winger is 5/1 to score at any time, while either Roman Pavlyuchenko (2/1 any time) or Jermain Defoe (13/2 first goal) will need to rediscover their shooting boots to fill the Peter Crouch-shaped hole in attack.

For some bigger odds, you can take your pick in the Correct Score market, with 2-2 worthy of attention at 11/1 and 2-1 Tottenham paying 17/2, or try your luck in Scorecast, where Luka Modric to notch first in a 1-1 draw pays 66/1!

Meanwhile, the Sportingbet Spurs Zone is giving you and six mates the chance to watch the visit of West Brom on April 23 from the Sportingbet box, plus you can now listen to Michael Dawson’s fans forum answers in Up Close. You don’t even need a Sportingbet account to get involved, so enter now!

Odds correct at time of writing.
