Champions League

It is the second leg of the Champions League quarter finals tonight with Man City hoping to finish the job off after their impressive display in the two all draw in Paris.

A low scoring draw (0-0 or 1-1) would be enough to take City through to the semi finals, however, due to their defensive weakness I am sure they will go at PSG and try to win the match. The first leg was littered with errors in amongst the fine attacking football and I can see tonight's match being exactly the same, with whoever can keep the error count down to a minimum, coming out on top.

A lot will depend on the service that City are able to provide Sergio Ageuro, as if they can get him into the game early on they will cause plenty of problems for the PSG defence. The recent return from injury of Kevin De Bruyne has been a massive boost for City as he gives them an extra goal scoring option as evidenced with his delightful finish in the first leg. Along with David Silva he will be the key to unlocking this Paris defence and City now have an excellent attacking trio.

As always PSG will rely heavily on Zlatan Ibrahimovic to get them the goals and the City defence will have to be right on their game to keep him at bay. He missed a penalty and a one on one in the first leg before City got their first goal, therefore he could be the difference tonight.

Both teams to score looks a certainty going by the last match but at 1/2 it is too short for me. I do however think City will have enough to win on the night, therefore, City to win and both teams to score is a selection I like.

The other tie that takes place tonight is Real Madrid v Wolfsburg. Madrid have it all to do as they trail by two goals to nil after a surprising first leg. Wolfsburg will feel confident of getting a goal and if they do, it will mean that Madrid will have to score four to stay in the competition, which would be an incredibly tough ask. I think the market is underestimating Wolfsburg again, and we can obtain a best price of 24/23 for Wolfsburg in the 'to qualify' market which I think is excellent value.
