Paris Saint-Germain vs Bayern Munich – Match Preview

Paris Saint-Germain vs Bayern Munich
Sunday 23rd August 2020
UEFA Champions League, Estadio da Luz

Live on BT Sport 1 HD / YouTube – Kick-Off: 20:00 BST

Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich will fight for European glory in Sunday’s Champions League final at the Estadio da Luz in Lisbon.

The French champions dominated RB Leipzig in their semi-final tie to secure a 3-0 victory and a place in their first ever Champions League final. Meanwhile, Bayern Munich, in typically brutal fashion, breezed past Lyon in their last four tie to not only make the final but extend their unbeaten run in all competitions to 29 matches (28 wins, 1 loss).

Paris Saint-Germain have a great chance at claiming glory but will have to be at their best to beat the German giants with SkyBet pricing them at 11/5 to win the match. The Ligue 1 outfit will look to their attacking duo of Kylian Mbappe and Neymar for a moment of magic but will be anticipating a lot of defending against a Bayern side who love to keep possession.

The two aforementioned attackers could easily be the star for their side, with Mbappe priced at 7/5 to score anytime and Neymar priced at 6/4.

Bayern Munich are slight favourites for the final and are priced at 19/20 to win the match. The Bundesliga champions showcased their brutal nature with their 8-2 drubbing of Barcelona in the quarterfinals before cruising into the final with a 3-0 victory over Lyon. It is tough to pick any side in the world that could beat them right now, but at the pinnacle of tournament football stranger things have happened.

If you expect Bayern to be finding the back of the net, then look no further than Robert Lewandowski. The striker has scored in his last nine consecutive Champions League matches and is the most feared number nine in the world. He is priced at 13/5 to score first.

These two don’t meet often, with the last encounter coming in the 2017 Champions League group stages. PSG won the first match in France but Bayern got their revenge in the second – but don’t write into history too much with a match of this magnitude. One thing to expect is goals, and whilst that cliché comes up before every major final, this match has a real expectation to have us on the edge of our seats. SkyBet are offering 1/1 for over 3.5 goals.

The match will be televised on BT Sport 1 HD but will also be free to air on YouTube and kicks off at 20:00.

Prediction: Paris St Germain 1 – 3 Bayern Munich

– Whilst PSG have a mouth-watering attacking line-up, it is hard to see anyone beating this current Bayern side. Expect goals.

Charlton Athletic vs Millwall – Match Preview

Charlton Athletic vs Millwall
Friday 3rd July 2020
Championship, The Valley

Live on Sky Sports Main Event HD – Kick-Off: 20:15 BST

Charlton Athletic will host Millwall in Championship action this Friday night as both teams have it all to play for at both ends of the table.

Charlton find themselves only a few points from the drop zone after a positive start to life since the lockdown. Meanwhile, Millwall are just five points from the play-off places but will be hoping to turn their draws into wins as they boast a whopping league-high 17 draws this season.

Charlton Athletic have a tough evening ahead of them and are priced at 12/5 by SkyBet to win the match. Lee Bowyer’s side have struggled for consistency this season but have picked up positive results since the restart with a draw against Cardiff and wins against QPR and Hull. They face a much tougher test, however, against a Millwall side that likes to press high and not give them time on the ball.

Going forward, Macauley Bonne has impressed this season and is priced at 23/10 to score anytime.

Millwall are favourites to claim three away points on Friday night and are priced at 23/20 to win the match. Gary Rowett’s side were only able to get a draw against Swansea City in their last match, despite dominating for large parts of the match. Their aerial and physical presence has served them well this season and has seen them claim most of their points against sides such as Charlton during the campaign.

In attack, Matt Smith has been their main source of goals with 12 this season. He is priced at 2/1 to score anytime.

Last time these two met, a very late goal from Lions top goal scorer Matt Smith broke Addicks hearts at the Den with a 91st minute winner. Jonathan Leko had cancelled out Sean Hutchinson’s early strike as just 20 booking points were brandished. This time around, SkyBet are offering 13/8 for 50+ booking points.

The match will be televised on Sky Sports Main Event HD and kicks off at 20:15.

Prediction: Charlton Athletic 1-2 Millwall

– The visitors have impressed despite only claiming draws and should have too much for the relegation-threatened hosts.

West Ham United vs Chelsea – Match Preview

West Ham United vs Chelsea
Wednesday 1st July 2020
Premier League, London Stadium

Live on Sky Sports Premier League HD – Kick-Off: 20:15 BST

Free-falling West Ham United will play host to London rivals and top four hopefuls Chelsea in Premier League action this Wednesday night.

The Hammers have just two wins in 2020 as they have the worst record in the whole division over the last ten matches. They have failed to score since the restart. Meanwhile, Chelsea are on fire with six straight victories in all competitions with their most recent wins over Leicester in the FA Cup and Manchester City in the league.

West Ham United are huge underdogs for this match despite having home advantage as they are priced at 17/4 to win the tie by SkyBet. David Moyes’ side find themselves in deep trouble as they fight to keep their topflight status. There are a number of teams in the same position and whilst West Ham have the quality to dig themselves out of the mess, they are unlikely to claim any points this Wednesday.

In attack, they will hope Sebastian Haller can find inspiration from somewhere as he is priced at 13/5 to score anytime.

Chelsea are favourites for this match-up and are priced at 4/7 to claim three more points in their bid for top four. Frank Lampard’s side have been mightily impressive in recent weeks as they have reached fourth in the league table with seven matches to go. Whilst they have not blown teams away on the score line, they have tightened up their defence which has allowed their attack to prosper.

Going forward, Christian Pulisic has impressed since returning from injury and is priced at 6/4 to score anytime.

Last time these two met, West Ham pulled off a shock 1-0 victory thanks to a second half goal from left-back Aaron Cresswell. A second goal for the Hammers was disallowed due to a VAR check as 30 booking points were brandished at Stamford Bridge. This time around, SkyBet are offering 11/8 for 50+ booking points.

The match will be televised on Sky Sports Premier League HD and kicks off at 20:15.

Prediction: West Ham United 0 – 2 Chelsea

– The visitors should be in complete control of this match and should cruise to three more points.

Suggested Tips – West Ham United vs Chelsea (BET365)
