Mumbai Indians are the in-form team in the Indian Premier League and can book their place in the final with a win over Chennai Super Kings. Meanwhile, Liverpool need to overturn a three-goal deficit against Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League semifinal second leg and will be looking to continue their formidable home form.
Mumbai Indians vs. Chennai Super Kings (16:00 SAST)
Mumbai Indians sealed top spot in the Indian Premier League on Sunday, beating Kolkata Knight Riders by nine wickets. It was their second win in a row, and a fortnight ago, they also beat Chennai Super Kings by 46 runs. They will thus fancy their chances against a team with two defeats from their last three matches.
Keep an eye on veteran pace bowler Lasith Malinga, who heads into this match off the back of a fine performance against the Knight Riders and is paying 4.50 for top Mumbai Indians bowler. Some other betting options for you are listed below:
Liverpool vs. Barcelona (21:00 SAST)
Liverpool head into the Anfield leg of their UEFA Champions League semifinal tie against Barcelona 3-0 down on aggregate. They were undone by the genius of Lionel Messi and former Reds star Luis Suárez in the first leg, but taking on Liverpool at Anfield will be a different task for the Blaugrana.
Jürgen Klopp's men have won six matches in a row at home, and although winning the tie on aggregate is a huge ask from here, Liverpool are paying relatively big odds for a second leg victory. This is something which football bettors might want to exploit.
