Bayer Leverkusen vs Paris Saint Germain [Prediction, February 18th]

Paris Saint Germain must have been the team to breathe a sigh of relief at the end of the Champions League draw when they found out their opponent was going to be Bayer Leverkusen. Not to diminish the Germans who finished second in the group after Manchester United, but they did lose without any right to appeal against the leaders with a 5-0 in a match in which, according to the bookies, they were supposed to take the first spot, and book an eventual clash against Olympiacos Piraeus.

PSG got ready for the first leg of their round of sixteen clash against Leverkusen with a 3-0 win over Valenciennes, and over 60% of ball possession. Lavezzi scored first on the 18th minute, to give PSG the lead in the first half, and Ibrahimovic scored on the 50th minute, and the third goal came merely two minutes later as Kagelmacher’s own goal put PSG eight points clear in the Ligue 1 table. Considering last year PSG reached the quarter finals of the competition, where they only succumbed to Barcelona on away goals rule, this time around they might be serious contenders to reach the final.
Bayer Leverkusen sports some mixed results, and is yet unclear whether they can bounce back from the DFP Pokal exit. Currently they reside on the second place in Bundesliga and have a four-point advantage over Borussia Dortmund. Their last two wins have had a winning margin of just one goal, and yes they have struggled to win against the 14th placed Stuttgart team, who looked much more composed that the hosts. Leverkusen’s key men for scoring are Kiessling, Sidney Sam and Simon Rolfes, the team’s captain who scored three times in the group’s stage.

By no means is Bayer Leverkusen vs. PSG a match won by either team from the start, yet still the visitors are favorites to advance further. Betfair lets you back either team to win or the over/under market looks profitable enough with 1.93 odds for under 2.5 goals. We are going to bet 7 units and back PSG to win at 2.42 with odds from the same bookie.
