Valencia v PSG: Odds and Analysis

The Champions League returns of Tuesday after its winter break. We study the form for the first round of matches.


To win home leg: 7/5 Boylesports
To progress: 13/8 WilliamHill
To win Champions League: 80/1 Bet365

Group Stages: W4 D1 D1 Pts 13
Current La Liga position: 5th
League form: WDWLWW

Verdict: Unbeaten in their last 9 CL games at the Mestalla and advanced with ease alongside Bayern in the group stages. Results in La Liga are much improved under new boss Ernesto Valverde with 5 wins in 7 although a 0-5 loss to Real was hard to stomach a few weeks ago.

Paris St Germain:

To win away leg: 23/10 Boylesports
To progress: 8/13 Boylesports
To win Champions League: 25/1 Skybet

Group Stages: W5 D0 L1 Pts 15
Current Ligue 1 position: 1st
League form: WWWWDW

Verdict: An emerging force in European football but without any recent pedigree in this competition having not previously made the knockout phases since 1994/95. However, they had the best defensive record in the group stages, conceding just 3 in 6 matches. Could potentially run away with the French league but hard to know just how strong that is.
