Olympiakos - Paris Saint-Germain Betting Preview: Why backing both teams to score can prove profitable

Michel's in-form side play host to Laurent Blanc's French champions in the Champions League on Tuesday and our tipster is backing goals on either side in Group C
Big-spending Paris Saint-Germain face a stern test of their Champions League credentials when they open their campaign against in-form Olympiakos in Greece on Tuesday evening.

Laurent Blanc's men are considered by many to be serious contenders in this year's competition and are available at 21/20 (2.05) with Coral to lay a marker by claiming all three points from Tuesday's clash in Piraeus.

Olympiakos, though, have made a fine start to their domestic campaign, winning all four of their opening league fixtures, scoring 12 goals and conceding just one.

Michel's men will be confident of causing problems for the French champions on Tuesday night and can be backed at 13/5 (3.60) with Coral to enjoy a victory on home soil. The draw is chalked up at 23/10 (3.30) with the same firm.

It is worth noting that PSG have scored in each of their last 21 competitive fixtures in all competitions, a record stretching back to last season, and Blanc's side will be confident of finding the target against Olympiakos.

Therefore, the 21/20 (2.05) quote from Coral for this match to produce three or more goals is likely to prove popular with punters.

Opening night nerves, though, could play a part and, instead, punters are advised to play safe by backing the 10/11 (1.91) on offer from Coral for both teams to score on Tuesday.

There may be value in siding with the home side at a chunky 13/8 (2.63) with Coral in the draw no bet market here but braver punters could be rewarded by backing the draw at an appealing 23/10 (3.30) with the same firm.

Those looking to extrapolate greater value from Tuesday’s tussle should study Coral's correct score market, with the juicy 11/2 (6.50) quote for the match to end 1-1 the recommended play for value hunters.
