AC Milan - PSV Betting Preview: Why backing a goal glut can provide a path to profit

Following a fascinating first leg in Netherlands, Massimiliano Allegri's men are favourites to progress but Willie Duncan expects a high-scoring clash at San Siro on Wednesday
AC Milan play host to PSV in the second leg of their Champions League play-off tie. Following last week's 1-1 draw in Eindhoven, there is plenty to play for and this promises to be a thrilling encounter.

Milan will be hoping to make home advantage count and the Serie A side are chalked up at just 4/6 (1.67) with Coral to see off PSV at San Siro.

PSV, though, will harbour high hopes of reaching the Champions League group stages and Phillip Cocu's men are available at a chunky 4/1 (5.0) with Coral to ensure their place in the next phase of the competition with victory in Milan. The same firm go 11/4 (3.75) that the match ends in stalemate.

Cocu's side were held to a 1-1 draw at the weekend but the in-form visitors have netted an impressive 18 goals in seven competitive fixtures this season and are capable of ruffling the Rossoneri's feathers.

The 4/7 (1.57) quote from Coral for both teams to score is understandably short and there may be better value to be had in backing the goal market on Wednesday.

It is worth noting that PSV have scored two or more goals in five of their seven competitive fixtures thus far this term and the 12/5 (3.40) quote for the visitors to net at least twice on Wednesday is hugely appealing here.

With the tie delicately poised, it is easy to anticipate an open and exciting contest and, therefore, goal backers could reap the rewards here.

With that in mind, Coral's generous 13/8 (2.63) quote for more than three goals to be scored is the recommended play here while backing PSV to score two or more goals at 12/5 (3.40) with the same firm is an attractive option for those looking to maximise profits for small stakes.
