the clash between Manchester United and PSG at Old Trafford. The Red Devils are
unbeaten in 11 matches across all competitions since Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer took
over as manager, with the club winning 10 of those games and climbing up to
fourth in the Premier League table.
meanwhile, look well on course to defend their domestic crown. They sit 10 points
clear at the top of Ligue 1 having lost just once so far this season, and in
the Champions League topped a group which included both Liverpool and Napoli –
PSG are at just 8.50 to lift the continental title in May.
the betting is close for this first leg tie, it is United who come in as the
favourites to record an advantage prior to the return encounter. You can more
than double your money by backing the Red Devils to win at 2.37, while PSG are
out at 3.10 to do the same – a draw would appear to be the least likely outcome
and is priced accordingly at 3.50, according to Oddsshark.
And we are
expecting home advantage to be a key factor here. A comfortable, 2-0 win for
United is priced competitively at 12.00, thereby offering more than a ten-fold
return on any investment, while you can more than double your money by backing
under 2.5 goals in the game at 2.10.
Roma host Porto looking for win
evening, AS Roma welcome FC Porto to the Italian capital looking to secure that
important advantage. Roma come into this match in good form, having gone their
last six league outings unbeaten – they are just five points behind Inter Milan
in third place.
meanwhile, are in excellent form on the domestic front. They sit top of the
table in the Primeira Liga and have not lost a league encounter since October,
but this will be a different calibre of test than their domestic encounters.
And it in
indeed Roma who come in as the favourites to win this first leg tie. You can
more than double your money by backing the home side to pick up an advantage at
2.10, while Porto are out at 3.75 to do the same – a draw is priced in the
middle at 3.50.
think that Roma should have enough to collect that win. A narrow, 2-1 victory
for the home side comes in at 8.50, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a
US$42.50 pay out, while you could quadruple your money by backing a combo bet
of a Roma win, coupled with both teams to score, at 4.00.
Tottenham face tough test as Dortmund come to
finally, Tottenham will face a real test of their continental credentials when
Borussia Dortmund arrive in London. Spurs have won their last four league games
in a row and sit third in the Premier League table.
by way of comparison, sit five points clear at the top of the Bundesliga table.
They come into this match on the back of a wobble, however – after opening up a
3-0 lead against Hoffenheim this past weekend, they conceded three goals in the
last 15 minutes to drop two valuable points.
this tie, it is Tottenham who come in as the favourites to pick up an advantage
prior to the second leg in Germany. You can more than double your money by
backing Spurs to win at 2.30, while Dortmund are out at 3.20 to do the same –
again, a draw comes in highest of all at 3.60.

comes in at 8.50, while you can more than double your money by backing “No” to
both teams scoring at 2.10.
