Champions League Wednesday Betting Tips PT 1- By A.J. Ryder on February 15, 2017 19:25 GMT
We had a stellar reintroduction of the Champions League just yesterday as Barcelona were dealt an epic blow by their Parisian counterparts Paris Saint Germain in a 4-0 rout that likely signifies the decline of an era for the Catalan Club. In a match-up that Lionel Messi and co were expected to dominate, they were absolutely outplayed from whistle to whistle by a PSG attack spearheaded by a 10/10 performance from winger Angel Di Maria.
In the other contest, we had Benfica just edging Borussia Dortmund so there was plenty of reward for punters who went against the grain seeing as though the underdogs won in each of their matches on Tuesday.
Looking ahead at Wednesday's contests we have a pair of appealing clashes with Bayern Munich likely looking over their shoulders a bit after seeing what happened yesterday in Paris and Germany. The likelihood of Arsenal beating an in-form Bayern isn't exactly stellar, but there is still every chance that Arsenal can conjure up a good performance if they stay organized in midfield and are able to take their chances.
It's likely that a 1-1 draw here would be seen as a tidy effort by Arsene Wenger's men, who have gone off the boil slightly over the past few months in the English Premier League. Manchester City now sit second and Arsenal look like they are in for another season of trying to slug it out for a top four spot in lieu of actually challenging for the title once again.
Bayern go into the contest with a slim price of about 2/5 with the majority of major bookmakers as we get closer to the match. Looking at the odds movement shows that they have been popular for quite a while but seem to hold more appeal as part of a double with the other contest on offer in the Champions League on Wednesday.
