Today, Tuesday, April 24 and Wednesday, April 25, UEFA Champion's League action returns with two smashing semi-final games. Football lovers across the world will be treated to some exciting match-ups and JustBet is here to preview both games for you.

Firstly, we take you to England where Liverpool and their feared attackers welcome Roma to Anfield, then tomorrow we transport you over to Germany to witness two of football's power-house teams go head to head in what will be a scintillating affair.

Liverpool are in the semi-finals for the first time in a decade, while Roma's sole previous semi-final appearance came way back in 1984, so both teams will be eager to take advantage of this opportunity.

Roma have featured in only one previous European semi-final, and were victorious, only to be defeated by Liverpool in the final at their own stadium.

Liverpool remain the only unbeaten team left in this season's Champions League, while Roma are the only team yet to concede a goal at home — on their travels to England this season in Champions League action, all three encounters ended in draws.

My betting tip? Liverpool to win.

The JustBet Odds on the match are as follows:

Liverpool to win $1.55, which means that a $1,000 bet would pay $1,550.

Roma to win $5.40, which means that a $1,000 bet would pay $5,400.

Odds of a draw, $4.30, which means that a $1,000 bet would pay $4,300.

Odds on the home team (Liverpool) winning the game 3-1 at full time, $11.50, which means that a $1,000 bet would pay $11,500.

Odds on the away team (Roma) winning the game 1-2 at full time, $17.00, which means that a $1,000 bet would pay $17,000.

Odds on the game drawing 2-2, at full time, $15.00, which means that a $1,000 bet would pay $15,000!

The second all-action game on Wednesday at 1:45 pm local time, sees two of the game's most successful and exciting teams lock horns. Robert Lewandowski and Cristiano Ronaldo will come face to face when Bayern Munich host Real Madrid in a match that will have fans on the edge of their seats for the 90-odd minutes.

Bayern have been eliminated by Spanish opponents in the last four seasons, including by their semi-final opponents Real Madrid in the 2016/17 , Cristiano Ronaldo scored five times in the tie. Both teams met in last season's quarter-final and it was Madrid who prevailed, en route, to become the first team to retain the trophy in the UEFA Champions League era and claimed a 12th European title overall.

This will be Madrid's record eight successive UEFA Champions League semi-final, while Bayern Munich are in the last four for the sixth time in seven years. Bayern's coach, Jupp Heynckes has never failed to reach a UEFA final when contesting the semi-final, however, his task will be made more difficult by the fact that Real Madrid have won their last five matches against Bayern, scoring 13 goals and conceding just four. While in-form striker Cristiano Ronaldo has scored seven goals in his last three appearances against Bayern. You will be truly entertained by these two footballing giants on Wednesday, so relax, kickback and enjoy the game and JUSTBET and Win with us!!!!
