Liverpool Can Win A Point In Paris
Love him or hate him you can’t deny the fact that Jose Mourinho has managed teams in 14 seasons in the Champions League and they have all qualified for the knockout stages. Jurgen Klopp is now under pressure to see Liverpool through and a draw against Paris St-Germain tonight would be a massive step in that direction. Klopp’s teams don’t generally do bore draws but one point would be vital in the group context.
A win in Paris could be enough to progress to the last 16 but the group is tight and the result of the match between Napoli and Red Star Belgrade has to be factored into the dynamic. PSG have conceded at least one goal in their last eight Champions League matches and are better going forward than defending. Liverpool can get the result they crave with a DRAW which is 3/1 with bet365.
A draw is not enough for Tottenham against Inter Milan at Wembley tonight to stay in the hunt to get out of the group. The pitch has been declared acceptable by UEFA but Tottenham beat Chelsea despite it and not because of it in the Premier League on Saturday. A point for Inter will suffice to qualify for the next round and they have scored in 12 of their last 13 matches in all competitions.
The eight matches played in the group so far have produced 27 goals and a tally of two or more reached in all of those fixtures. Inter will be delighted with a draw and will be cautious during the opening exchanges. If there hasn’t been a goal before half-time Tottenham will push forward leaving space at the back and in midfield. The best betting angle is more goals in the SECOND HALF at 21/20.
It’s an ordinary day for racing with two jumps and AW fixtures in Britain and a jumps meeting at Punchestown in Ireland. The richest race on the card is the novice chase over two miles and four furlongs (2.30). Poli Roi is the favourite but the distance may be too sharp for the horse. At a much bigger price KILDORREY is top rated and gets 7 pounds because the jockey is a claimer so looks a decent bet at 9/1 with Coral.
