Accusing me of being an idiot fanboy...stil crying after the game?!?! Bahahanhaha like I said buddy we are here to make money. Terrible betting advice form you, hopefully you have better luck the next round.

@Notorious, stop taunting please. You have been warned about this before. We are all here to work to beat the bookies, not each other.

@StevieDay1983 You are right. But you've got to admit bro he accused me of being a fanboy all day yesterday and I didn't respond. Did you bet on any of the games?. 

If you feel somebody is trying to goad you and we haven't picked up on it (I have to monitor hundreds upon hundreds of post each day so do sometimes miss things) then give me or another admin a message and tell us you aren't happy with the way someone has spoken to you. Don't sink to a level of unacceptability. Personally, I don't think @discipline meant any real offence by calling you a fan boy. I've been poked fun at on here for my views on Cardiff and Swansea being a Cardiff fan. There was definitely a change in tone with your reply though to a more aggressive stance and that's not acceptable.

My focus was on the Championship last night with so many games on (what's all this Champions League business about?!) so didn't get a chance to bet on these games. I'm not surprised by the outcomes though. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich have been my picks to reach the final since the early games. I think Real Madrid could well retain it. I just don't see any stand out teams this year. Even PSG stand a chance! What has this tournament come to if PSG stand a chance?! :lol

hahah its all good its not that serious, Madrid won and that is all that matters. Sheffield Wednesday cost me a nice payout yesterday had them, Walsall and the 2 c league winning teams. PSG :p hahahahhahaha. I hope Barca and Dortmund both win 4-1 today would make my day. 

I can see Barcelona winning by 2-3. Can they overturn that deficit? If anyone can...

I would certainly back Dortmund to win 4-1.

Have you gone all balls out and backed 4-1 as a correct score in both? If you have and it comes off then we'll have to find a special congratulatory signature for you! :lol

I reckon you boys are underestimating Benfica, throwing out scorelines like that.

To be honest, Benfica X2 @ 3.50 or whatever is not so bad.

The outright price of 10.5 is also ridiculous.

I will wait for the game and look in to the live markets depending on how they play.

Mitroglou has a habit of ruining parties.

Benifica on my radar too.

EDIT: In fact I think you lot are crazy to bet on any kind of handicap on Dortmund. Benifica kept 12 clean sheets in their last 17 games in the Primeira league, 6 of them away from home - and already held Dortmund once.

Smart bet would be Benefica +2 at evens, give or take.

Agreed on Benfica guys, tricky game.. they know how to fight... and Dortmund without Reus, not that obvious.. As i've said, to back an under 3.5 is not that bad here...

Three bets tonight for me (beside some accas pending):

> PSG to win and over 2.5 @6.00  (small-medium stake)

> PSG goals: Over 1.5 @2.6  (large stake)

> A double: Dortmund-Benfica Over2.5 @1.4  + PSG-Barca Draw & over 2.5 @6.5  = total odds @9.00  (small stake)

good luck guys!

You are a tough, brave sports bettor, huh? Got any other unthinkable betting advice? You know, like Chelsea or Juve winning their next league home game? That kind of stuff? You seem to be good at it. ;)

 

As for tonight. Barcelona win + over 2.5 goals or Barcelona win + BTS seem like good bets. I reckon Barcelona will score 3 but won't be able to prevent PSG from scoring at least once. Don't wanna touch the Dortmund game. I still don't know what to think of Tuchel's Dortmund. Anything is possible.

See here we have the loss in translation that comes with communicating online.

French Boys - Yanks come off abrupt/obnoxious online, but in real life they'd be putting their arm around you and you'd tell thy were winding you up. It's not intentional.

Notorious - these French boys are lovely in real life. but that doesn't translate well in here - they're playing with you and come across as a bit soft and at times also rude, but in real life you'd see the French love to play with language and they're all about suggesting shit without actually really meaning it.

The Welsh, on the other hand, are hard as fcuk and strike the fear of God into anyone they deem worthy to communicate with. You boys should bow down kiss the ring lol

Long time no speak..been a while.

PSG to score looks a must tonight – although the odds are garbage now so prob in-play. Barca aren’t playing a Spanish minnow tonight, PSG are much better when playing sides that attack them – see their struggles against sides that put 11 behind the ball – Di Maria/Moura/Draxler are all rapid and they will create chances on the counter. I couldn’t confidently predict an outcome in the game but talk of Barca going through sounds fanciful to me, they haven’t convinced me this season and beating sides like Celta Vigo 5-0 doesn’t mean anything. PSG are a better team overall and I can see them scoring here as Barca will have to push forward in numbers at some point. Mascherano playing again is a blow for the bet as he is the brains in that backline.

Dortmund look like a banana skin in general, someone with a decent gameplan will knock them out. I admire Benfica as they seem to retain the same level while losing all their best players, Jonas is past his best but Mitro has stepped up to the plate this year. I don’t really think Benfica should go through but wouldn’t be confident enough about Dortmund to back them on a handicap.

Personally my big bet to win at the start of the comp was At Madrid at 15 and backed R.Madrid at 6.5 later on. Tempted by Juve at 9 now too.

Spanish newspapers tend to forget that these days... in the liga thread we love to bet on Celta lately, good team, but cmon!! All these liga team are far away from PSG's level... PSG would also crush Celta 5-0.. no doubt... How could they put PSG so low, these guys are stupid narcissistic catalan fanboys!

And these spanish seems to think that if they can score 6 goals to Sporting Gijon, so they can do it to PSG.. what a joke, what an insult and a huge lack of respect for the opponent.. 6 goals to PSG? Really... Probably the best defense in Europe with Bayern's and Juventus's... Lmao..

Some have even said that they could do the "remontada" in just one half... Sick... mark my words, PSG is going to punish all of these spanish-barca chokers!

Barca beating PSG 5-0 (or whatever is enough) tonight would be the greatest accomplishment in CL history if you ask me. The problem is that even if Barca lead 2-0, PSG can still calmy play their usual defensive game and don't need to open up.

Opa @DrBetter.. Talking about Barca like this.. :) Admit, that you are just trying to become friend with your enemy huh? :p  I think that all those #remuntada things are just to inspire Catalan nation, to believe, to go on the match and to support their club. What would you expect in Catalan news today? Articles like.. Let's play if we need to? We have no chance? That would be real stupidity IMO. Who will believe if home region won't? :) That's football.. and if anything, than PSG had problems with mentality in matches like this. Just remember last season.. it was the same in Paris. City can not touch us, City is rubbish, CIty is in crisis, blahblah.. and this City, even if they had big problems with key player Yaya not interested to play, and some other problems (without West Ham, they wouldn't even be in CL this season) but yet.. they won against PSG. And now, this PSG is without main player of last xy  seasons - Ibra. 

Don't get me wrong, I prefer this PSG than the one before, specially because of Unai and really good players (f.. I really love them, even if I hope that Monaco will take the L1. Let's make a deal.. if your team will survive tonight, that I am cheering for PSG till end of CL.  :) ), but again.. don't be so sure. I agree that it will be incredibly tough to keep clean sheet for Barcelona, but don't forget that you will play in front of 100k fans, and conceding a fast goal can break things... As I mentioned before.. Lucho took great timing to announce his depart, players will play for themselves.. They were humiliated in Paris and believe me, that they will at least try to do something. Did you see match of Real yesterday? They played for nothing. They were poor, Napoli played very very solid, high pressure, stealing dozens of balls, creating chances, but what happened? Real scored twice from nothing. PSG has Cavani, who is one of most known players in the world able to miss 100% chances one after another and will be the version of him today.. who knows.. :) I was thinking about going with x2 here, but after Enrique said what he said, and after I've seen some trainings of Barcelona.. I can tell you that you are too confident as well. Admit that somewhere deep in you is piece of fear. :p 

p.s. kind a like war over here. :D @Notorious you still didn't respond about French talents.. Are you just ignoring me, because you are not able to talk with me normally? :(

Really tempted by Barca -1.5 handicap. Since LE anounced his departure it seems players are more confortable, also late wins against Atleti and Leganes helped to build some confidence. They've scored 11 goals in their last two matches, true is they played against Gijon which normally will get relegated but then they scored FIVE against Celta which IMO is a decent team. To me it just depends on Messi and Suarez, if they are fully motivated this can be a long night for PSG.4-0 its an enormous handicap, almost impossible to comeback. But let's not understimate Barca, they are the champions of Spain and they have the best player and maybe the best striker in the world. I believe this match will be one-sided with Barca going on mode full attack, dominating possesion, PSG counter attacks might kill them but I'm taking the risk. 

2 units on Barca -1.5 handicap

Brits dont know their footy lol yet we have the best league in the world don't you agree?

 

Im also a Swansea supporter. All I want to say is two words - Bob Bradley.

Ahahah Bob Bradley, the first american coach in France... Lol.. A bit surprising to see him go to Swansea... went well obviously :lol

As for the first statement, difficult to say... I'd like to tell you yes, but there is 2 major arguments that bother me when you ask PL fans about past/bad performances of their clubs in european cups:

1) Too much energy required to dispute the PL, nothing left for european cups... 2) Winning PL is too prestigious, nobody cares about champions league, because CL is easier to win... I just don't find these arguments very honest, and though, I really hope we'll see good performance from PL teams in CL in the future, to support your claim...!
