PSG have this season a difficult mission in Ligue 1, because they need to fight for the title against Lyon and Marseille.

Still, the team from Paris ended five of the six consecutive matches without receiving a goal, only APOEL not managing to score in this period. Chelsea scored in each one of the eight away matches throughout all the competitions since December, but in six of these matches they also received a goal. In the last year’s direct match, our tip came out as a winning one since the 27th minute.

X final

Both teams closed the last matches undecided, PSG at Lyon and Chelsea at home against Manchester City. The stake of the match are high and also the tension. Mourinho won’t be afraid of a tie at Paris if his team manages to score. On the other hand, PSG will surely be the team that struggles more, but under the conditions in which they face a stronger opponent, the tie is also an option for them.

Odds: 3.10
Stake: 6/10
