Adrian Clarke’s Best Bet

Adrian’s best bet comes from the tie of the week as PSG travel to Germany to face Bayern Munich.

Adrian feels there is going to be plenty of action in store here, as there usually tends to be when these sides meet.

The tie is set up for a cracking second leg, and we could very well see both sides playing with serious attacking intent.

Fingers crossed for goals galore!

Recommended Bet: Bayern vs PSG – Over 3.0/3.5 Goals (1.98)

Mark O’Haire’s Best Bet

Mark is not the biggest Scott Parker fan in the world (if you couldn’t already tell!).

Beaten 3-0 against lowly Oostende at the weekend, the pressure is mounting for Parker and his Brugge side.

Mark feels the well-oiled machine that is Benfica should see out a comfortable win in Lisbon on Tuesday evening.

Recommended Bet: Benfica vs Club Brugge – Benfica & Under 4.5 Goals (1.76)

Miguel Delaney’s Best Bet

Miguel, very much in agreement with both of the guys, has gone for a differing Benfica-based approach here.

Benfica, as they have shown this season domestically, are more than adept defensively to thwart any problems that Scott Parker’s side can throw at them.

Therefore, Miguel has opted for a chunkier price against a sterile Club Brugge side.
