PSG v Valencia: Both to find the net in Parisiens victory

When PSG meet Valencia, simply backing over 2.5 total goals looks a good call at 4/5, given the sheer volume of strikes that have emanated from European matches featuring this pairing this season.

37 goals have come out of the 13 Champions League games the teams have played this term, and the aforementioned bet would have paid dividends in the first leg of this tie, which PSG won 2-1.

But at a more appealing 7/4, the Parisiens to win a game involving at least 2.5 goals seems a terrific bet.

Punters backing that outcome would have received a payout in all of PSG’s home Champions League group stage games, and it looks as though the trend has every chance of continuing.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men are 17/20 to simply win the match meanwhile, but considering they hold the best attacking record in their domestic league, goals aplenty appear likely at the Parc des Princes.

Valencia, who are 3/1 to avenge their first-leg defeat with victory in 90 minutes, have scored in each of their European matches this year too, making a bet on both teams to score tempt.

8/11 is the price attributed to either side finding the net, but a better bet is the 27/10 that each defence is breached in a French win.

PSG have won 14 of their last 17 matches in all competitions, and should build further on that highly impressive statistic against a Los Che team with just one victory in their last four.

Perhaps the only significant drawback to the home side’s chances is the absence of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, following his sending off in the first leg of this clash.

His omission from the side leaves a number of value first scorer options however, with Ezequiel Lavezzi the most tempting at 5/1, bearing in mind he has hit four goals in six European appearances this season.

David Beckham could appear for PSG meanwhile, though likely from the bench, and the former England captain is 14/1 to mark the occasion by closing the scoring.
