Apr 12: Champions League Betting Preview


THERE should be two cracking Champions League ties tonight as big guns PSG and Real Madrid attempt to reach the last four after disappointing first-leg results.

PSG were held 2-2 at home to Man City while Real suffered a dreadful 2-0 loss away to Wolfsburg.

Both are up against it but I can see them battling through to the semi-finals with some thrills and spills along the way.

It won’t be easy for PSG but they won 2-1 at Chelsea earlier in the campaign and triumphed in 10 of their last 11 away games and I believe they can win at the Etihad.

Conceding two away goals puts PSG on the back foot but the fact they must attack could benefit them as they’re better going forward and City will be without skipper Vincent Kompany with doubts over some other top names.

City are now favourites to go through at 8-11 with Paddy Power with the French 13-10 at Coral. To win on the night though PSG are 8-5 at jollies at William Hill while McBookie and bet365 offer City at 9-5.

A draw is possible at 13-5 with Ladbrokes but to have a chance of proceeding PSG need it to be 2-2 or higher scoring. Another 2-2 that forces extra time pays 12-1 at McBookie.

The way the sides defended in Paris both should score and that returns 1-2 at William Hill and McBookie.

PSG have David Luiz and Blaise Matuidi banned while Marco Verratti and Javier Pastore are doubts but they have Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Swede missed a penalty, hit the bar and scored in the first leg and is 6-5 at Ladbrokes to net for the fifth successive match. To break the deadlock he is 9-2 at Ladbrokes and Paddy Power.

Real will be looking to win 3-0 or 4-1 if they concede and while it’s a tall order we all know they’re capable of doing the business on their day. My concern is they’ll concede against a side who will pose plenty of problems on the break and who will know the importance of the away goal.

The Spanish side are short on the night at 2-9 with Btfred to win but to qualify bookies can hardly split the sides despite Wolfsburg’s adavantage.

Real are a slightly favoured at 19-20 with 888sport while the Germans are 1-1 at bet365 and that will attract those who saw Wolfsburg do a number on their opponents at home.

With the likes of Andre Schurrle and Julian Daxler in their line-up the visitors don’t lack a threat and if they score first that could be crucial.

In the same way Ibra is key to how PSG perform the onus will be on Cristiano Ronaldo to take the lead for Real and he is 1-2 at Coral to score and 5-2 with Betfred to net first.

Ten of Madrid’s last 18 Champions League wins at the Bernabeu would have taken them to at least extra time and I reckon they’ll at least achieve a 2-0 win. That scoreline pays 17-2 at William Hill while Real is just 8-15 with bet365.

Over 2.5 goals is ridiculously short but both teams to score is 4-5 at Stan James.
