After Tottenham and Ajax made it through to the quarter finals last night, we will find out two more of the last eight in tonight’s Champions League fixtures between Porto and Roma, and PSG and Manchester United.
On this article last night, we landed two winning bets to give us a 5/1 winning double thanks to a Spurs second half goal and one of the Ajax young stars having 2+ shots on target. We’re delving back into the more obscure markets tonight two pick out another double.
Manchester United have a mountain to climb after losing the first leg against PSG 2-0 at Old Trafford and the other tie is still in the balance following Roma’s 2-1 win over Porto in the first leg. This looks set to be another great night of Champions League action and Man United will need a performance similar to what Ajax managed in Madrid last night.
Needing to score at least two goals to have any chance tonight means Manchester United have to go for it at some point in the match, and this could play right into the hands of PSG. No team have ever progressed to the next round after losing the first leg at home by two goals or more and that just shows the enormity of the task in hand. Knowing they need goals, United will have to play an attacking game here and that will give PSG plenty of oppotunities to score, so the first of our betting tips is going to be from the shots on target multiples that Paddy Power offer.
You will get odds of 6/4 on Mbappe having 1+ shots on target and Draxler having 1+ shots on target tonight. These two played a big part in the first leg at Old Trafford and if the match opens up as expected, then the PSG counter attacking players will certainly be keeping David De Gea busy.
If they manage it, it will be the first time Porto have progressed from a two legged European tie after losing the first leg since 1986. The Portuguese side didn’t defend well in the first leg and that was illustrated by the statistic that they conceded the most shots on target in a Champions League tie since a game against Bayern Munich in 2015. Roma had nine shots in the first leg. We’re not expecting that to be the same here and Porto’s formidable home record could see them overturn this first leg deficit.
Port won all three home group matches this season and Roma have lost seven of their last eight away games in this competition – it’s a really poor record to have and it could mean they get eliminated tonight. Porto are more than capable of turning this tie around, especially with the away goal in the bank so for the second Champions League betting tip tonight, we’re backing Porto to qualify for the quarter finals at odds of 6/5 with Paddy Power.
A £20 double on these two betting tips returns £110. Bet on this and get 10x free £5 bets for the Premier League this weekend.
