Seeley’s Selections – Chelsea v PSG/ Bayern v Shakhtar
Chelsea v PSG
CHELSEA continue their pursuit for another Champions League success on Wednesday night when they host Paris St Germain at Stamford Bridge.
Jose Mourinho’s side are just evens with BoyleSports to win this in 90-minutes and are an incredibly short 4/9 to qualify through to yet another quarter-final and neither of those prices should be touched.
PSG arrive in London in their best form of the season and are now currently one point of the top of Ligue 1 after a very shaky start to their season and this will be a lot tougher than the odds-compilers suggest.
Laurent Blanc’s side outplayed the Blues’ for long periods of the game in the 1-1 draw in Paris in the first leg and the 10/3 with BoyleSports on them winning this one isn’t paying them the respect they deserve, especially as they come into this match unbeaten in their last 14.
Saying that though, I couldn’t back the French to win it, but I can’t see them losing either and another draw at an industry best of 5/2 with BoyleSports is the best play.
One thing I’m very confident of is the visitors scoring.
The French champions have now scored in their last 17 matches in all competitions and have managed to find the net in their last seven Champions League games and they will be confident of scoring against the Premier League leaders.
Both teams have scored in four of the last six PSG matches and also in four of the last games for Chelsea and it’s no surprise that I like the chances of that happening in this one at the 20/21 with BoyleSports.
I can see this being a long old night in west London and the 11/2 on the match to finish in another 1-1 draw with BoyleSports is also a bet that interests me.
Four of Chelsea’s last 10 games have ended in that scoreline and it wouldn’t surprise me to see this one going all the way to dreaded penalties and then it’s anybody’s.
PSG thrashed Lens 4-1 at the weekend whilst Chelsea had another rest week due to FA Cup action. The Blues have only played two times in almost three weeks, which isn’t the ideal preparation ahead of their biggest game of the season and it’s another reason why I’m opposing them at the short prices.
Former Chelsea defender David Luiz scored the first goal in the Lens victory and that was the second time in as many games he’s opened the scoring for PSG.
I’m going to chuck a quid on the Brazilian netting the opener on his return to Stamford Bridge at a massive 28/1 and with my other quid, I’m going to have it on the 50 million pound man to score at anytime at BoyleSports very generous 8/1.
Both Teams To Score – YES @ 20/21
Correct Score 1-1 @ 11/2
David Luiz First Goalscorer @ 28/1
David Luiz Anytime Goalscorer @ 9/1
Bayern Munich v Shakhtar Donetsk
In the nights other last 16 second leg tie Bayern Munich host Shaktar Donestk at the Aliianz Arena as the red-hot 2/11 favourites with BoyleSports.
The two played out a very feisty goalless draw in the first leg and Bayern will be without suspended midfielder Xabi Alonso who was sent-off in that first meeting.
Alonso will be a big loss, but the Champions League favourites will still be confident of seeing off the Ukrainians despite only one win in their last six knock-out games in this competition.
Shaktar are 18/1 with BoyleSports to pull-off a surprise win, which isn’t going to happen against a Bayern side that have won 16 of their last 17 home matches.
You can’t back the hosts are these short prices but you can confidently back them to win to nil at BoyleSports 7/10 which is a much better alternative or if you’re not interested in that one then have a couple of quid on a 2-0 and a 3-0 home win at 9/2 and 11/2 which will pay you out at around 2/1 combined for your money.
Bayern Munich To Win To Nil @ 7/10
Correct Score – Bayern To Win 2-0 @ 9/2
Correct Score – Bayern To Win 3-0 @ 11/2
