Valencia v PSG Tip
The La Liga team have all the know-how when it comes to CL knockout football with one man in particular proven as a goal machine.
Some players, for whatever reason, really come into their own in the rarefied atmosphere of the Champions League - one such man is Roberto Soldado. At a best price of 2/1 (BetVictor) in the anytime goalscorer market, the stats suggest he’s a real bargain.
The Spanish international has scored 14 goals in his last 14 Champions League starts and we can see that he has been a regular contributor ever since arriving at the Mestalla in 2010.
Soldado’s record in European games at Valencia:
2010-11: Games 7 - Goals 6
2011-12: Games 13 - Goals 7
2012-13 Games 5 - Goals 4
The 27-year-old’s chances of finding the net look even better when you consider his club’s formidable home record in this competition. Valencia have scored 28 goals in their last 9 unbeaten Champions League matches on their own patch.
PSG may be progressive, but they will have their work cut out stopping Soldado.
