Mbappe the man for PSG

There are two more Champions League ties on Wednesday and the highlight comes from the City of Lights where Paris Saint-Germain look to have too much for Manchester United.

PSG to win to zero @ 9/5

Les Parisiens were masterful in the first leg at Old Trafford, making light work of the absences of both Neymar and Edinson Cavani, as goals from Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe saw them cruise home 2-0.

Both Neymar and Cavani remain out but it is hardly like PSG lack depth. In contrast, United will be without Paul Pogba through suspension and the injured Jesse Lingard, Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera.

United maybe on a club record run of eight straight away victories but PSG’s expected dominance in midfield means their chances could be few and far between.

Mbappe First Goalscorer @ 12/5

Therefore, the home side could look to make a statement and their man to watch has to be the sensational Mbappe.

Still only 20, the former Monaco man already has two Ligue 1 crowns and a World Cup amongst his trophy haul and has relished his role as the main man in recent weeks.

Seven goals in five games, including a brace in the weekend win at Caen, shows how hot the youngster is and he is unlikely to shy away from the challenge of taking on United.

Porto to win and both teams to score @ 49/20

The other game is a touch less glamourous but both Porto and Roma will fancy their chances of progressing to the quarter-finals.

Last month’s first leg was a cagey affair, with not much happening before Nicolo Zaniolo opened the scoring for the Italian side on 70 minutes. The 19-year-old doubled the advantage six minutes later before Adrian Lopez grabbed what could prove to be a crucial away goal in a 2-1 defeat.

Porto have scored in every home game this season but that was not enough at the weekend as they lost 2-1 to Benfica at the Estadio do Dragao, in the process losing top spot in the Primeira Liga.

The Giallorossi went down 3-0 in the Derby della Capitale to Lazio and having won just four of their last 13 away matches, could be punished here with Azuis e brancos having won all three of their home games on their way to topping Group D.

Dzeko to score at Anytime @ 5/4

Porto are rightly the 21/20 favourites in the match betting but they will need to control the threat of Edin Dzeko.

The Bosnian looked a class above in the earlier game at the Stadio Olimpico and has three goals and two assists in his last five outings.

While he failed to find the net in the opening tie, Dzeko has scored five times in this competition this season and looks a good price to get on the scoresheet.
