David Beckham 6/1 to score a Champions League goal this season

The 37-year-old looks set to seal a move to Paris Saint-Germain and BetVictor have a number of special markets about how he will fare in Europe for the French side
David Beckham looks likely to grab the headlines with a deadline day move to Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain.

The former Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder was linked with a move back to the Premier League during January but it looks likely that he will line up alongside Thiago Silva and Zlatan Ibrahimovic instead.

BetVictor have wasted no time in pricing up a number of specials markets reagarding how Beckham will fare in the Champions League.

Punters who believe Beckham will play a role for the club in their persuit of the Champions League may be interested by a number of sizeable prices available.

BetVictor offer 4/1 (5.0) about Beckham starting any Champions League game in the current campaign and 6/1 (7.0) that he scores a Champions League goal this season.

Beckham is sure to have competition in midfield from the likes of Thiago Motta, Blaise Matuidi and youngster Marco Verratti - all of whom have played a part in the current Champions League campaign.

Carlo Ancelotti's men qualified top of Group A with 15 points from their six games and two points ahead of second-placed Porto, so Beckham will be by no means a certainty to start games, especially consdiering his advancing years.

However, his extensive experience in the competition could make the 4/1 (5.0) and 6/1 (7.0) available seem good value if Ancelotti believes he is still good enough to play in Europe's elite club competition.

Paris Saint-Germain have drawn Valencia in the first knockout stage of the Champions League and are favourites to progress, which could not only enhance the likelihood of those bets coming in, but could also lead into the other bet available at BetVictor.

For those looking for a longshot, BetVictor go 100/1 (101.0) that Beckham scores a goal against his former club Manchester United at any time in the 2012-13 Champions League tournament.

That's a price no doubt influenced by the fact Sir Alex Ferguson's side would have to get the better of another of Beckham's former clubs, Real Madrid, to set up a meeting.
