The Reds play host to Serbian outfit Red Star Belgrade but our tipster sees far more value in backing the Ligue 1 champions to rack up the goals

Champions League action continues on Wednesday night and bet365 are offering a market on which team will score the most goals.

Tuesday’s winner was a four-way tie as Manchester City, Hoffenheim, Lyon and Roma each bagged three goals, and the second half matchday three's action should also prove to be entertaining.

This market can be found on the Champions League page, under Tournament Totals from the related markets section, and pays top three each-way at 1/4 odds.

With the visit of Red Star Belgrade to Anfield, it is unsurprisingly Liverpool who are 5/4 (2.25) favourites in this market after the Serbian outfit were obliterated 6-1 by Paris Saint-Germain three weeks ago.

However, whilst the Reds are deservedly favourites, 5/4 (2.25) is a bit too short considering their attack is not yet firing on all cylinders, and such a price is wholly unappetising in a 16-team market.

With that in mind, the 5/1 (6.0) on PSG looks far more appealing ahead of Wednesday night.

The Parisians host Napoli and that devastating trio of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani will surely prove far too much for the Italians to contend with.

Indeed, PSG have netted three or more times in every home game this season so far and they scored 25 goals in last season’s Champions League group stage, which is a record.

Napoli, meanwhile, have lost four of their last six away matches in the competition and kept just two clean sheets in their last 14 such fixtures, so could be in for another tough ride in the French capital.

Also worthy of consideration are Barcelona, who are 13/2 (7.50) ahead of their clash at home to Inter despite missing Lionel Messi, whilst the 20/1 (21.0) shot on Porto away at Lokomotiv Moscow could prove popular.
