Our resident betting expert expects PSG’s Sweden international to score against his former manager’s side in what should be a low-scoring game in this Champions League quarter-final first-leg.
And ultimately, the Tipster reckons PSG and Chelsea will both settle for a draw ahead of the return leg at Stamford Bridge.
Ibrahimovic has been in potent form for the Parisian-based club this season, scoring 35 goals in Ligue 1 and the Champions League. The Sweden international is coming up against his former manager in the shape of Jose Mourinho. Ibrahimovic scored eight goals in the group stage before netting twice against Bayer Leverkusen. Ibrahimovic to score any time against Chelsea is 13/10.
Chelsea boss Mourinho will be satisfied with a draw to take back to Stamford Bridge, especially after a 1-0 loss to Crystal Palace at the weekend. The Blues were held to a 1-1 draw in the first leg of the last-16 tie in Galatasaray. PSG have only beaten English opposition once in seven attempts. PSG and Chelsea to draw looks good value at 23/10.
The Tipster expects Mourinho’s side to attempt to keep it tight at the Parc des Princes on Wednesday night. There have been under 2.5 goals in Chelsea’s last four Champions League outings. There have been less than three goals in three of the Blues’s last four games. The Tipster is backing under 2.5 goals at 4/7.
Having tipped a draw in Paris, the Tipster feels the double chance bet of Chelsea to win or hold PSG is worth a punt at 8/11. Despite a disappointing result at the weekend, our man-in-the-know expects the Blues to regroup and produce a professional performance. The Tipster likes the look of Chelsea to beat PSG or draw at 8/11.
This is exceptional value for Chelsea’s Belgium international. The 23-year-old is the west London side’s top goal-scorer in the Premier League this season with 14 strikes. Whilst Hazard has only found the back of the net once in the Champions League, he should be extra motivated against the Ligue 1 holders, who have been linked with the forward. The Tipster thinks Hazard to score is an outstanding price at 4/1.
