Paris Saint-Germain v Bayern Munich Betting: Neymar and Lewandowski to shine in goal-laden affair

Having assembled a forward line to match that of Ancelotti's star-studded side, Al Hain-Cole expects Les Parisiens to help ensure plenty of goals

Carlo Ancelotti will be hoping to come back to haunt his former club when Bayern Munich take on Paris Saint-Germain at the Parc des Princes in Wednesday's Champions League clash.

Having lifted the Ligue 1 title in his only full season in the French capital, the Italian manager can be backed at 13/5 (3.60) with Genting to collect maximum points on his first return to the club.

However, Les Parisiens have lost only one of their last 43 home games in European competition, and are on offer at 19/20 (1.95) to enhance that record even further with a big win here.

None of the previous six encounters between the sides in this competition have resulted in a draw, but there are odds of 14/5 (3.80) available on them cancelling each other out on this occasion.

After reaching the quarter-finals under Ancelotti for the first time in almost 20 years, PSG have been knocked out at that stage in each of the subsequent three seasons.

The Qatari owners’ determination to break past that barrier has been made clearer than ever by their lavish summer spending, having smashed the world transfer record to sign Neymar and won the race for Monaco prodigy Kylian Mbappe.

With the prolific Edinson Cavani already at the club, Unai Emery now boasts a frontline worthy of any superpower of world football – averaging three goals a game so far this campaign.

Having inflicted Celtic’s heaviest ever home defeat in European competition by winning 5-0 at Parkhead in their opening group game, the hosts should feel confident of punishing a defence that has not kept a clean sheet in eight Champions League away matches.

Nevertheless, with 16 goals to their name in the last five fixtures in this competition, Robert Lewandowski and Co. will also fancy their own chances against a backline that has conceded 10 in the previous 10.

All in all, odds of 10/11 (1.91) are not to be missed on over 3.5 goals being scored for PSG’s eighth Champions League game in nine, as well as a third in four on the road for Bayern.
