Man City to beat PSG 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1 @ 16/5

The Blues have suffered some frustrating disappointments in the latter stages of past Champions League campaigns but seem to have learned from those lessons, judged on their 2-1 triumph in Paris.

Marquinhos headed in a corner to give PSG a deserved half-time lead but City looked a different team in the second period, imposing themselves on the game and keeping their opponents pinned back.

Goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez put Pep Guardiola’s side in pole position to reach a first final and more of the same positivity would make it hard for PSG to get back into this tie.

Mauricio Pochettino promised to go for broke in an attempt to turn things around, declaring: “We will try to win and score goals. Of course, we are under a little bit of pressure but in football you need to try.”

However, that approach may leave them exposed at the back, especially as City just look fitter and stronger in most areas of the pitch.

Chelsea to win both halves vs Real Madrid @ 23/4

Christian Pulisic’s opener was cancelled out by Karim Benzema in the first leg in Spain but Chelsea looked the better team that night and almost certainly deserved more than a draw.

The London outfit would have been in firm control of the tie had Timo Werner not spurned two gilt-edged chances and we feel they are the team to be on at Stamford Bridge.

Goals usually flow in the second legs of Champions League semi-finals, with over 2.5 paying out in 15 of the last 20 matches at this stage of the competition.

That highlights the risk in Chelsea trying to sit tight and grind their way through to the final, especially with a clinical marksman like Benzema in opposition.

Therefore, we expect Tuchel’s men to try and be on the front foot from the outset and reckon they can overwhelm an ageing Real midfield.
