PSG v Chelsea Betting Tips
After narrowly missing out on a semi-final berth last season, PSG will be out for revenge, and perhaps more importantly, have a fully fit Zlatan Ibrahimovic leading their formidable attack. Last year's encounter ended in disappointment for the mercurial Swede as he suffered an unfortunate thigh injury early in the first leg, which saw the French champions lose out on away goals.
Form wise, PSG could certainly be doing better than they are. Despite being on a five match unbeaten run, the Parisians are conceding some sloppy goals at the back and have drawn their last two league games. This weekend's 2-2 result to lowly Caen might not look too bad on paper, but the match saw Laurent Blanc's men throw away a 2-0 lead with goals in the 89th and 90th minutes.
Chelsea head over to France fresh from a weekend off in the Premier League. The Blues are on a mixed run of form which has seen them crash out of the FA Cup to League One Bradford, but also book a place in the League Cup final at the expense of Liverpool. Nevertheless, Jose Mourinho's men continue to churn out results in the league and still maintain a seven point gap at the top.
Odds for Tuesday's PSG v Chelsea clash have literally nothing to separate the two sides. Both teams can be backed at a best price of 9/5, with the draw on offer at 9/4.
Similarly to the bookies, I really can't pick a winner for my PSG v Chelsea betting tips and the draw seems the most sensible option. First leg ties are often cagey affairs, especially with Mourinho in charge, and I would fully expect to see the trusty blue bus formation rolled out for the second half.
With this in mind, back the draw to be the final result in the first leg of PSG v Chelsea at odds of 9/4 with Bet365.
Moving into the goalscoring market and the tie is tailor made for Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Despite spending several weeks on the treatment table this season, PSG's talisman still has twenty goals to his name as well as scoring in his last two matches.
The best place to bet on Ibrahimovic to score anytime against Chelsea in the Champions League is 15/8 with Ladbrokes and we’re also tipping him to score the first of the match at 9/2 with William Hill. The bookmaker has a decent promotion running where refunds are available or your FGS selection score second in the match.
