Champions League Betting Tips: Can PSG turn the tables on Man Utd?
After Manchester City and Liverpool secured their spots at the top of their respective Champions League groups, tonight it’s the turn of Manchester United and Chelsea.
Victory for United at home to Paris Saint-Germain would seal their place in the knockout stages, and they’d be in a good position to progress as Group H winners. Chelsea have already qualified, and a win tonight in Seville would seal their place at the top of Group E.
We’ve previewed both matches, plus a tasty looking tie in Dortmund, in our Champions League betting tips…
Man Utd v PSG (20:00)
Having never met before 2019, Man United and PSG are getting to know each other pretty intimately ahead of this fourth clash in just 20 months.
With RB Leipzig still in the mix, Group H is far from decided and a defeat at Old Trafford this evening could be a huge blow for either side.
As we all know with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men, they’re not the same team at home as they are on their travels. And it’s worth noting that each of the last three meetings between these two teams have been won by the away side.
Each of the last two meetings have seen both teams score (2/5) while PSG to win and both teams to score is 13/5.
Marcus Rashford has netted in his last two games against the Ligue 1 giants. The forward is 7/1 to net first and 12/5 anytime, with Bruno Fernandes 5/1 to score first and 17/10 anytime. Ex-PSG hero Edinson Cavani is 9/5 to strike at any moment.
For the visitors, Kylian Mbappe has failed to score in his last two games versus the Red Devils defence, but the French star is 7/2 favourite to score first, with Neymar at 9/2. Former Man United winger Angel Di Maria is 11/5 anytime.
Sevilla v Chelsea (20:00)
Things are far more straight-forward in Group E, where both Sevilla and Chelsea have qualified with two games to spare. All that’s left is to see who secures a plum path into the knockouts as group winners.
Our traders have Frank Lampard’s visitors as 29/20 favourites to win at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium, with the La Liga hosts 19/10. Both sides may well rest key players tonight, with a draw priced up at 9/4, and a repeat of October’s 0-0 at Stamford Bridge 17/2.
Olivier Giroud could start for Chelsea, as debate continues to surround the French World Cup winner’s club future. The 34-year-old is 5/1 to score first and 21/10 anytime, with Callum Hudson-Odoi 17/2 to open the scoring and 10/3 anytime should he be given a run out.
For Sevilla, Youssef En-Nesyri is 5/1 to grab the opener, ahead of Lucas Ocampos and Luuk de Jong, both at 11/2.
Borussia Dortmund v Lazio (20:00)
Away from Premier League interest, we could be in for a doozy in Group F as Borussia Dortmund host Lazio.
The pair are first and second in the group, but with Club Brugge hot on their tails, neither side has qualified just yet.
BVB have won three of their four group games, but Lazio flexed their muscle with a superb 3-1 win when these sides met in Rome in October.
Lucien Favre’s hosts are 8/13 favourites, but they’ve lost two of their last three games at Signal Iduna Park, and Simone Inzaghi’s Lazio might sniff an opportunity at 4/1.
Dortmund goal machine Erling Braut Haaland has already plundered in 17 strikes this term, including six from just four Champions League games.
The Norwegian ace is 9/4 to score first and 3/5 anytime, with Jadon Sancho 9/5 anytime. Lazio’s Ciro Immobile heads up their goalscoring options at 9/2 to score first and 6/4 in the anytime market.
