After a two month break, the biggest European competition returns with interesting matchups from the round of 16, and we are offering the best Champions League betting options.
PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN VS REAL MADRID: BETTING TIPS
The Parisians are leading the pack in the French Ligue 1, as they are now 13 points above second-placed Marseille. In their recent games, PSG players have been gaining confidence in one another – scoring 10 goals in their last three games after a spell of games where they did not perform as expected.
This season, Maurizio Pochettino is expected to mount a bigger challenge in the Champions League with his great pool of players at his disposal, adding arguably the best player in the world, Lionel Messi, along with Sergio Ramos and Donnaruma to his squad. Last year they were knocked out in the Semi-Final by Manchester City, who admittingly were the better team tactically in both legs. However, as is often the case in Paris, there is underlying turmoil around the squad. PSG have voiced their concerns over the style of play brought by Pochettino and even more so, after the disappointing exit from the French Cup in the Round of 16 against OGC Nice.
Winning League 1 is simply not enough for the ever-ambitious club, as they now eye Champions League glory for the first time after they got agonisingly close in the 2019/2020 campaign when they reached the final, only to lose to the eventual winners Bayern Munich.
Maybe this year will be the year.
Leo Messi to score anytime in the game is priced at 3/2 (2.50).
With the home side winning with a correct score of 2-1 in the match valued at 7/1 (8.00).
Carlo Ancelotti took over after his one-year spell with Everton and got Real Madrid close to their best. The 34-time La Liga champions find themselves at the top of the league with a margin of four points over Sevilla and topping their Champions League group with just one loss against surprise package Sheriff.
The spanish side have struggled to find their way without striker and key player Karim Benzema. After missing the last three games through injury, the Frenchman remains doubtful for the game in France, with other players also not available, such as Ferland Mendy and Mariano Diaz.
The Champions League always brings the best out of the Madrid players, who are the most successful club in the competition, winning it an impressive 13 times and being one of only three clubs who managed to win the competition three times in a row.
The two clubs have met on 10 previous occasions in the Champions League, with the Spanish side just edging the head-to-head in terms of victories (W4, D3, L3), but more recently, PSG avoided defeat in the last two occasions, winning one and drawing in the Bernabeu.
Vinicius Junior is at 9/4 (3.25), to score anytime during the match.
A correct score of 1-1 is at 11/2 (6.50), giving Real Madrid the advantage in the tie.
