The UEFA Champions League Quarter-Finals roll on as the clashes on Tuesday, April 13, pit four soccer clubs with very different histories against each other. This time, Paris Saint-Germain host Bayern at the Le Parc des Princes in Paris, France, while Chelsea welcome Portuguese side Porto.
It looks like the Chelsea vs Porto matchup has already been decided but there is always space for surprises, as history has shown us in the Champions League the past several years. On the other side, the Paris Saint-Germain vs Bayern matchup is still open and two goals from the Germans might see knock the French side out of the competition.
While picking a straight winner might not be as attractive there are many betting opportunities in the over/under or who scores first that might be much more attractive. Let’s take a look at the sports betting options for these matchups.
Paris Saint-Germain vs Bayern betting picks
Bayern's form in all competitions had been impeccable this season, despite suffering slight mishaps in the Bundesliga and the DFB Pokal. However, with Robert Lewandowski being ruled out of action due to an injury, a crack has started showing in the Bavarian's system, as they were defeated 3-2 at home by PSG in the first leg.
The Allianz Arena meeting wasn't one-sided but it was PSG who used their chances and netted three goals, compared to Bayern's 31 total shots, 12 of them on goal. Choupo-Moting and Muller wrote their name on the scoresheet for the home side, while thanks to Marquinhos, and Mbappe's brace, the Paris outfit have an advantage in Leg 2. 18 combined players are set to miss the matchup due to different reasons such as injuries, or the COVID-19.
Since it will be a "do or die" match for both sides, betting that the game will have Over 3.5 goals could be a sure bet, at +108, a $100 bet could earn the bettor $108 on FanDuel. If you got to pick anyone to put the ball in the back of the net, look no further than Kylian Mbappe, as he is at +480 to be the first one to score.
Chelsea vs Porto betting picks
Chelsea had been undefeated under Thomas Tuchel for 14 matches, before finally being shocked 5-2 by West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League on 3 April. However, they did manage to stabilize themselves in the Champions League, thanks to the 2-0 trumph over Porto from the first leg.
Porto did not impress in this game, and they have failed to replicate their incredible performance against Juventus. Thus, Mount, and Chilwell used that to their advantage and brought the Blues a grand victory with two away goals. It will be the Portuguese side who will miss four players for this decisive clash, but the Premier League outfit will have all players at their disposal.
Which is why Chelsea are big favorites here and thus, it’s not unreasonable to think that they can win this game with another final result of 2-0 and that score line is paying +750.
Parlays for these two Tuesday matchups of the UEFA Champions League Round Quarter-Finals
A solid parlay bet could be the following: Bayern and Paris Saint-Germain to score Over 3.5 goals; Kylian Mbappe to score the first goal of the game, and Chelsea to beat Porto 2-0 again. At $100, the bettor could win up to $1,338.
