PSG v Real Madrid Betting Preview

Date: 6/3/18

Time: 19.45

Venue: Parc de Princes

Channel: BT Sport

PSG will have to come back from a two goal deficit they suffered in Madrid if they are to progress in this years champions league. It is going to take some doing, considering Madrid’s 3 victories of the competitions in the last 4 seasons. A tie that could have quite easily have been the final may have already been decided in just the first leg of the tie.

Both teams to score seems to be the most nailed on bet for this game but having said that 1/3 does not offer any value whatsoever. Real Madrid’s recent history in this competition is phenomenal, and PSG have got a huge task ahead of them to progress, and I fully expect Madrid to perform again here in the French capital. Madrid to score 2 or more goals is just below evens here which seems like a great bet. Madrid’s form, however, in La Liga is relatively poor for their standards. They sit in third, 15 points behind the leaders and arch-rivals Barcelona. They have lost 5 games compared to Barcelona’s 0. PSG on the other hand are flying in Ligue 1, rather expectedly, and sit 14 points clear. This is largely down to £198 million man Neymar, who is unfortunately injured for the remained of the season, with his fitness for the World Cup in doubt.

This is a game that promises plenty of drama, goals and tackles. With that said, from a betting perspective it is a tough one because the bets that seem nailed on are extremely poor value. My best bet for this one is BTTS over 2.5 goals at 1/2 but a bet with more value that I fancy is Ronaldo to score anytime at 10/11.
