PSG v Bayern Munich Betting Special: Neymar to outshine rival Cavani at Parc des Princes

The pair are vying for top spot in the pecking order, whilst Kylian Mbappe and Robert Lewandowski are also good bets to net in the Champions League

When two elite European teams meet, it’s usually either a case of the heavily-cliched midfield arm-wrestle or the all guns blazing approach.

Thankfully, when PSG meet Bayern Munich in Paris, it should be the latter. The two teams have scored a whopping 48 times between them this season in all competitions, it should be a feisty affair in front of goal with shots coming left, right and centre (literally).

Interestingly, these sides have not met in the Champions League since the 2000/01 tournament – which Bayern won – making it the first match between the two since PSG joined their German counterparts in being a consistent European heavyweight.

Perhaps surprisingly, Edinson Cavani is 14/5 (3.80) favourite with dabblebet to open the scoring at Parc des Princes, or 8/13 (1.62) to bag in the 90 minutes; the Uruguayan has already netted nine times this season and will be hoping to add to his brace against Celtic two weeks ago.

More predictably, Neymar is next on the list alongside Robert Lewandowski, with both priced at 16/5 (4.20) to net first. The Brazilian's fallout with Cavani has been well-documented and it remains to be seen who will be on set-piece duty, which could impact the first goalscorer, whilst Bayern's Polish striker is looking to add to his 10 goals this campaign.

Rounding out the hosts' triumvirate is Kylian Mbappe, who is quoted at 10/11 (1.91) to find the net anytime and will be getting withdrawal symptoms after not scoring in over two-and-a-half games.

After that come the other usual Bayern suspects such as Arjen Robben and Thomas Muller, who are listed at 7/1 (8.0) for the opening strike, whilst rejuvenated attacker James Rodriguez is 17/2 (9.50) to show parent club Real Madrid what they are missing.

Looking past any of the two teams’ attacking players is perhaps an unwise choice, but in a game that should be end-to-end, Dani Alves can be backed at 5/1 (6.0) anytime to add to his 10 career Champions League goals and become the second-highest scoring defender in the competition of all time.
