Champions League Wednesday Betting Preview PT 1- By A.J. Ryder on March 8, 2017 18:06 GMT
We have the second legs of the Champions League Knock Out stage continuing to unfold on Wednesday and, after yesterday saw both favourites conquer their opponents by relatively lopsided margins, one has to wonder whether we will see another side run riot here since PSG are already up 4-0 on Barcelona.
That was definitely a result that nobody saw coming but the Paris Saint Germain faithful were rewarded with a stellar display last time out anchored by one of the career best performances from Angel Di Maria.
The other contest unfolding today sees Benfica take their 1-0 result to Borussia Dortmund – who are getting the edge from the bookmakers to pull off the reverse. This one is definitely a tricky match to read on paper and it's going to be rather rewarding to any of the punters who can actually decipher this one and execute their bet correctly.
As it currently stands, the bookmakers have Borussia Dortmund trading at an uncompetitive price of about 1/3 – you'll probably find that being used in tandem with an outright result in the other fixture happening today. The draw stands at an 11/2 listing and that would be a solid result for Benfica since it would see them through to the next stage of the competition.
Benfica to pull off the outright result here over 90 minutes – a win that would be a big statement for them heading into the next stage of the competition – rewards at a hefty price of 10/1 and if you reckon they can put the press on Borussia Dortmund right from the outset and grind out the result then you're looking at a very solid payout.
