Chelsea 19/4, Draw 14/5, PSG 7/10 See the Latest Odds
Chelsea had a big win in the English Premier League in their last match against Newcastle and the blues will look to take this form to Paris and the Londoners travel to France to face PSG in the first leg of their round of 16 match in the Champions League. This is obviously a massive game for both sides and as a result I am expecting 100% from both sides.
PSG have been dominant as usual when it comes to their domestic competitions and they are in good form. That being said, this is the hardest test they have had in months and it will be interesting to see how they handle it. With all that in mind, they have players like Di Maria and Zlatan in form so it will be hard to see them lose especially since they are at home.
Chelsea on the other hand are also starting to pick up some form but as far as EPL, its too late. That being said they can still run deep in the Champions League and they will want to desperately since I doubt they will be in this competition next season. This is going to be a test for them but they are a good side and they should put up a fight at least.
Overall I think that PSG will win this game since the French Champions are at home and they are simply too strong. That being said, they are not paying well so I don’t think that it is worth it to put money on them to win outright. The handicap on the other hand is also a tough one to bet on since Chelsea should put up a fight. I think the best bet here is to but money on both teams to score since I am expecting a 2-1 or 3-2 win for PSG and we get paid if that happens.
