Because when u have just %30 ball possession u need to defend very well, but Arsenal can't defend... Arsenal is out of form, on other hand Bayern is in superb form. Yes, they won the first match and have big advantage, but they are germans... Ozil is out too.

How many times these year you can double your money if you take Bayern win?

I guess we have to disagree then. With such a big lead, teams will be playing not to lose or lose big rather than trying their 101% to win.

Bayern has never done the double against Arsenal too. Pep Guardiola failed twice and even the great Jupp Heyckes whose Bayern thrashed Barca 7-0 on aggregate failed in 12/13 too.

Napoli to win @ 3.00

With no important absences for Napoli (just Tonelli) and this being game of the year for the club and the whole city, I'm taking a shot at this. Recent Real performances against Valencia and Villarreal (although they rallied back to win) have shown that they are far from being unbeatable. Today they are playing in front of 60,000 passionate Southern Italian fans whose noise will be deafening. Especially when they'll be jeering every time a Real player touches the ball. Certainly a lot different than the boring Spanish fans. I know, Real in CL are a different animal, but Napoli also have a great record at home. Bayern, Manchester City, Chelsea, Dortmund, Arsenal were all there and couldn't win.

Deserved this deserved that Real Madrid are the Kings of Europe. b2b Champions leagues about to be served. Keep hating your blind bro, typing up novels vouching for psg, but tossing a title won by a club out the window for being un "deserved" lmao. You do realize at the end of the day trophies won is what counts, psg so far have won what exactly?? And i'm not trying to hate on them Cavani has for me been the best striker in Europe. You don't have to be a fan you are clearly hitched to there bandwagon.

Dude... don't be angry... We're here to trade infos, personal opinions about a club, a game, the goal is to argue... and therefore I gave a long opinion on why to back PSG.. You're not forced to follow me, please, at least be polite and respectful with the opinion of others... Even if sometimes, they're lacking of objectivity, if you kept an eye on my betting record, you know i'm no blind.....

As I know that i'm surely the only one on the forum to have seen every match of PSG this year, (and since childhood), i can gave pretty good feedbacks IMO, trying to be as objective as i can...

"Keep hating" wtf? hate? where? Have i missed something?

"tossing a title won by a club out the window for being un "deserved" lmao"  > Lots of people said Real didn't deserved at least one of the titles, that they had an easy way to the final... I'm not original here, not inventing anything, just stating my opinion shared by a few people... So, stop there bro... Share the love instead!

"Naples will bow down to the Kings of Europe" > Yes sure... They'll bow, as everyone of us should do i suppose.. lmao... ;-) No arm bro.. 

Glad you like Cavani!

I have watched every psg match this year, I own a marco verratti kit. PSG have badass players, only thing keeping them from beating barca last couple of years was Ibra.Serge Aurier only non Madrid player i follow on social media, dudes a don. But that Barca match is overrating them. I consider you hating when you think Real Madrid C League trophy was undeserved. I made $2400 off Portugal, do you think there win was also undeserved?? PSG are bound to have a Cavani flubbing every chance and di maria headless chicken mode. Verratti is made out of paper, how many top games has he been healthy enough to play? Champions League requires discipline and luck. PSG will win in the next 3 years, but now isn't the time. Now is for them to get knocked out in the semi finals in a painful way, and comeback next year with a vengeance that's how this tournament works. 

"Portugal... do you think there win was also undeserved??" Honestly, Yes... IMO they played poorly, i remember them in group phase... this team is was so painful to watch.. But yeah, in the end, they won fairly... I'm also thinking France should have won 2006 world cup, and deserved it.. Am I blind? not sure...

"But that Barca match is overrating them" >> Can't wait to debrief the match with you... I swear to you that if we loose poorly, and loose in quarter poorly too, i'll do my mea culpa... (keep that somewhere lol) :lol 

"I don't think Real Madrid is the favorite to win it either btw, Juventus, Bayern are the top 2 for me."  >> Agreed and never said otherwise... i've add PSG to this top 2, that's it... You've just been a bit aggressive, but I get your point bro..

"Idiot fanboys" ... Really...? Well well... We have a winner... Hey, smart ass... breaking news... Nobody forced you to read, and it's not like they were hundreds of messages full of subjectivity here... But i get it, facts are tough to deal with those days... Learn to be polite, kinda useful on a forum even you dislike, troll, or disagree...

We'd love to ear your predictions for next CL games (beside a napoli win)...

If he's not acting like an idiot fanboy, then what is he doing?

Real were beaten by Valencia and couldn't even beat frigging Las Palmas of Gran Canaria holiday island. But saying that Napoli with a full squad and a massive home crowd behind them MIGHT win (Not will win) is somehow blasphemy according to him.

It's ok I got mocked everywhere for backing Portugal to win it all. They have the best youth talent in the world.

No worry, i also get mocked by my portuguese friends since a few months... But no, stop with that, France isn't choking everytime, stop the BS, actually, in a bit more than 15 years, they've done 2 finals of Euros, and 2 finals of a World Cup, winning half... so... not bad for a choking team... I guess England and every country in the world would love to be choking as well in this case.. Cmon, be a bit objective here... No team has done that...

But, no, it's not the best youth in Europe, if you fact-check this statement, it's probably France, as they won many under17, under 19, under21 international competitions these past years, and actually, France is the first market to export its young talented players in europe... Not a single country in the world (beside Brazil) produce and export as much talents (and this is facts!!!!)

As for the youth of Portugal, lot of young players there are brillant, i agree with you, one of the most brillant young team, surely above Spain or England, but I'm not a huge fan of Andre Gomes, Renato Sanchez, and some others, and i'll wait to judge Guedes, as many described him a a potential new Ronaldo (the 5th or 6th surely). And it's not only players, Portugal have been consistent to produce good coach... I love Jardim in Monaco!! 

I'm writing your predictions for 2018, I guess we'll have to get back to each other in a year and a half...!! :lol

Ah ok Mea culpa, if I read you well, the "idiots" comment wasn't for me? I feel like it was though..lol

For Notorious then? Now i feel like i need to defend him.. lol... Let's forget it...!! :)

Don't worry, we love to trade aggressive point of view with Notorious, it's becoming an habits, there is so much love between us since he has a full Verratti pack..! 

No arm guys, and you've made a good point about Valencia, i made the same earlier, i also agree with you that Napoli at home, on a match, can perfectly defeat a underperforming Real... (im sure Notorious will disagree, but in secret, i bet he's not that sure about that game)... Napoli's last games wasn't the real Napoli we saw earlier in the season on some occasions... If Napoli plays at 100% and Madrid at 75%, it will be a disputed match... 

 

"But saying that Napoli with a full squad and and a massive home crowd behind them MIGHT win (Not will win) is somehow blasphemy according to him"

> Lol, you've seen how he went mad on met for backing PSG and said they might win, and go the final.. lol.. 

Rendez-vous tomorrow to trade lovely insults and/or happiness? lol.... ;-)

Everyone are attacking Luis Enrique that he didn't chose good time to announce that he is leaving after the season, but IMO he took the best possible timing. Honestly, he has some good ideas about counters, but ideas about counters are not for Barcelona and I believe that things will be better in next season. I think that everything is possible, but as I rate this PSG (Emery) really highly, I think that it will be really difficult to keep clean sheet. And on other hand I think that odds on Monaco are too high, but I will rather wait for next week to see how it will be with both teams.

p.s. Neymar has made a bet with teammates to score at least two goals against PSG. [Mundo Deportivo]

Agreed @Pep004 ... I also rate Emery's PSG highly.. Since he came... Waou... It took time, but at the end, no more light pressing, verticality, aggressively, team spirit, and every players have said they now understand Emery's philosophy... 3 Europa league in a row without the best team, far from that actually... stunning, imagine with a good team in CL... i'm sure he's a wizard, a bit like Bielsa... 

funny, I saw that Blanc had a 5% score in a pole in spanish newspapers on who would be the best candidate for Barca...      I know Blanc is a little short on resume, but his record in champions league are really good.. Almost never lost a game in years besides Barca, and he beat them, and beat also Mourinho twice... Not bad..  Actually i know there is some stats somewhere showing that he was one the best coach in "win ratio" in CL (Bordeaux + PSG)... I know i'll be called stupid, but I really think he wouldn't be a bad coach for Barca.. Of course he won't be chosen, but bear in mind that he is one of the few coachs in the world to really have mastered this "possession style-Barca like", like Wenger had years ago... It's not that much of a bad idea for Barca... At least he'll do well with the club philosophy... Of course Barca need someone more "prestigious".. but in case they're short in ideas... just a thought...

Good luck tonight for your bets guys!

Zero chance of Blanc getting the gig. Sampaoli probably won't get it either due to his temperament.

Valverde for me.

I am torn. I think Sampaoli could but I think it is Valverde's to lose.

On tonight's games, Bayern Munich naming a full strength side... this could get messy!

Arsenal screwed by an inexperienced ref. PK yes but definitely not red. A PK should probably be given to them too.

Quote

A foul on a running striker committed by the last man of the defence will no longer result in a direct red card and suspension, unless the foul is violent or consists in a hand-ball in the box.

I don't think that's the rule. As far as I am aware, the new rule allows the referee to show a red if he see's the challenge/tackle as 'deliberate or 'intentional'.

Haven't seen the incident though.

Hahahahahahahahhahahahahaahahahah thank you Arsenal. Napoli it's been fun. Hope everyone tailed my parlays

Yeah, Zidane is such a great manager. Just telling his players to score when they got a corner. Amazing coaching and playing style. :ok

Sucks that Mertens didn't make it 2-0 before half time break. Real might have shat their pants after that. Napoli played very good in the first half and Real were in fact intimidated by the crowd. but betting football is like a box of chocolate. Real played shit and still won. Typical Zidane. Hurts to see great footballers having such a mediocre coach who has them play an awful style of football. But at least the trophy hunting fanboys are happy. ;)

Wow @Notorious how can you say that France isn't one of the best when it comes to youth potential right now? :eek '93 till '98 are one of the best if not the best generations in history of France. It's true that we can not know into what kind of players they will grow.. but

Varane, Kimpembe, Mendy, Laporte, Zouma, Alm. Toure, Blas, Pogba, Bakayoko, M. Dembele, O. Dembele, Tousart, Nkunku, Diop, Harit, Mbappe, Lemar, Tolisso, Thauvin, Fekir, Rabiot, Cornet, Coman, Martial, Augustin,... maybe I missed some of them, but I think that list is wide enough already. Unfortunately Verratti is not French, even though I thought on start (when he arrived to PSG) that he is. :D 

Don't get me wrong, I agree that there is lot of potentials in Portugal as well (I would add Bernardo Silva, Jota, Horta to your players), but right now I think that not Spain (Asensio, Saul, Torres, Munir, Deulofeu, Inaki Williams, Suarez, Mayoral, Gaya, Vallejo, Manquillo,...) not Portugal cannot compete with young talents with France. Besides U19 won final of Euro with 4-0 against Italy, while they've beaten Portugal 3-1 in semis. 

 

p.s. Praise to all of you, kicking bookies today.

Barcelona is forced to enter the court and attack from the start, because it needs at least four goals, I expect very open game with many stages, so we can see plenty of goals
FC BARCELONA vs PARIS SAINT GERMAIN @@ +3.00 Over, odds 1.55

Dortmund as he showed in the first match is better team and with the help of the seat can be removed on the field, attacking from the start and to assert claims with qualification to the next phase
BORUSSIA DORTMUND vs SL BENFICA @@ -1.25 BORUSSIA DORTMUND, odds 1.72

Borussia Dortmund v Benfica

The German side are big favorites coming into the match on the back of some impressive results and goal scoring. Dortmund is a club that has established a firm European pedigree in recent years, whilst they also play in a league that is superior the (a) side. The Portuguese were lucky not to concede 1 or 2 in the home tie and despite them being determined in defense I just can't see them seeing this one out. I was surprised by how poor Benfica were and I expect Dortmund to step up here for their fans. Reus is a big miss but they have great strength in depth in that position.

BET : Dortmund -1 (ah) at 1.91

BET : Dortmund to qualify at 1.73
