Paddy Power’s love in with Chelsea’s Eden Hazard continues tonight, as they are again offering money back as a free bet on all losing First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Correct Score & Scorecast singles on the match, if Eden Hazard scores at any time during the 90 minutes.
This looks to be an intriguing match tonight, with what looks on paper to be two fairly evenly matched teams. It promises to be a tactical battle, and this is usually the time that Jose Mourinho’s skills come into fruition.
I can’t see Chelsea going to Paris, and going all out for the win, but I’m sure they will be looking for the vital away goal, while trying to keep the match close and tight. Players of the rarity and class of Hazard are vital in such tight contests.
The draw looks a good bet tonight, and at the moment the draw is a top price of 12/5 with Bet365 (who also have £200.00 in sign up offers available to new customers and a £50.00 Free Mobile Bet for existing customers). As a result of the bookies expecting a tight match, Under 2.5 goals is also very short, it is currently as short as 1/2 with some layers.
Back to outright match betting, and if you fancy a PSG victory, it is a best price of 23/20 with BetVictor. PSG have been steadily drifting over the last 24 hours, having been around even money and just above at the start of the week.
Chelsea on the other hand are a best price of 16/5 with Coral. It is the draw that seems to be getting backed though, and I’m not sure how long the 12/5 will last for though.
Like with Bayern Munich last night though, it is sometimes risky backing the away team, as they can often be content with a scoring draw, or even losing by the odd goal as long as they get an away goal. In the case of backing a Chelsea win tonight though, 16/5 represents far better value than the 4/9 available on Bayern last night.
In terms of qualifying from this tie, the bookies can’t seem the separate the two teams. Most go 10/11 or 5/6 on both sides to qualify, you can get Evens on PSG with Betfair Sportsbook though.
