With the Champions League Quarter Finals upon us, Chelsea are England's best chance for success at 14/1. They head to France on Wednesday night for a heavyweight showdown against Paris Saint-Germain and we have some free football betting tips for you.
As their Premier League charge stutters, Jose Mourinho takes his Chelsea side across the channel to face the French champions. In fairness, the draw could have been worse and The Blues boss will certainly fancy his chances of progression. Having comfortably seen off Galatasaray (3-1) in the last round, PSG will definitely pose more of a threat but Chelsea do manage to have a slight advantage in the fact they will be at home in the second leg. Against a team with arguably the best frontline in Europe, an away goal in Paris will be crucial.
Similarly to their English opponents, PSG avoided many of the big guns in the previous round and strolled to a 6-1 aggregate win over Bayern Leverkusen. Top scorer Zlatan Imbrahimovic took his tournament tally to ten goals and now has 38 goals in all competitions this year. This is a ratio at just under a goal a game and is second only to Cristiano Ronaldo in Europe – just don't remind the karate chopping Sweed of that.
Browsing the early prices, there is little to choose between the two teams in terms of qualification with both available at 10/11. PSG are understandably favourites for the first leg tie in Paris at 11/10, with Chelsea 16/5 underdogs to take a win back to Stamford Bridge. However, Laurent Blanc's men have not lost at home this season and have also won their last six games at Le Parc des Princes, conceding only one goal in the process. Although the draw is tempting at 12/5, based on current form I just can't see past the home team. Back a PSG win at 11/10 with Coral and a 2-0 win with Betfred at 15/2. This isn't the best price available on such a scoreline, but a 1-1 result will see a refund with the match falling under the bookmaker's '1 Apiece' promotion.
Looking elsewhere, it is impossible to ignore Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Some of you might see this as a bit of a cop out but there are some interesting statistics surrounding the prolific marksman this year. Firstly, PSG have scored first 93% of the time at home in the league this season. Combine this with the fact 35% of Ibrahimovic's goals this term have been the first of the match. Then throw in his formidable goal to game ratio, and you simply have to back him to get on the scoresheet. At a best priced 4/1 with Coral and 11/8 with Bet365, back him to score first and anytime in the match tomorrow.
