  • Chelsea v PSG 745pm ITV

    first_img[dropcap]C[/dropcap]onfession time. Paris St-Germain are not a team I like much. I’ve always considered them (probably unfairly) a team of expensive individuals but with little collective team spirit or fighting qualities when the going gets tough.In punting though, you have to be prepared to adjust – otherwise you end up making the same mistakes time after time and after the first leg of their tie against Chelsea, which they won 3-1, I went some way to changing my mind.They were value for their win – but a little flattered by the scoreline – Pastore’s injury time winner was harsh on Chelsea and leaves them with a tough job to complete at Stamford Bridge tonight.HEAD TO HEAD RECORD(Max last 10 only)Apr 2014 C League Paris St-G. 3-1 ChelseaNov 2004 C League Chelsea 0-0 Paris St-G.Sep 2004 C League Paris St-G. 0-3 ChelseaTonight we’ll find out whether 2012 Champions League winners Chelsea have still got some fighting spirit left after coming off the rails a bit in the race for the Premier League title and we’ll also find out whether PSG can cope without Zlatan Ibrahimovic who picked up a hamstring injury in the first leg encounter in Paris.Ibrahimovic has been responsible for over 40% of their home goals this season domestically – he will be replaced by Edinson Cavani who joined PSG last summer for ‘just’ the odd £55m.Chelsea’s home record under Mourinho now stands at 78 games unbeaten and they are odds on tonight to win, but around 5/2 to qualify.PSG have scored in 17 successive Champions League matches, so ‘both teams to score’ at around 8/11 with Star Sports looks a spot of value, as 8/11 shots go.RECOMMENDED BET (scale of 1-10 points)10 points win BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE around 8/11 with Star Sports RUNNING RETURN (APRIL): PROFIT 26.08 POINTSRUNNING RETURN (YEAR): LOSS 64.20 POINTSWhat’s your view?
