Wednesday's Champions League predictions including Bayern Munich vs. PSG

Sports Mole provides score predictions for both of Wednesday's Champions League quarter-final first legs - Porto vs. Chelsea and Bayern Munich vs. Paris Saint-Germain.

Chelsea will aim to return to winning ways after their humbling defeat to West Bromwich Albion when they travel to Seville for the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final with Porto on Wednesday.

The 'hosts' overcame Juventus in thrilling fashion to book their place in the last eight, while Chelsea dumped Atletico Madrid out of the tournament in the last 16.

We say: Porto 1-2 Chelsea


Plenty of questions will be asked after the manner in which Chelsea capitulated against Allardyce's men last time out, but Tuchel has options in abundance on the bench, which he should utilise for the first leg. Porto command plenty of respect after dumping Juventus out of the tournament, but a fired-up Chelsea will be expected to bounce back immediately from their Premier League disappointment, so we predict a slender 'away' win for the Blues this week.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or an away win.

Bayern vs. PSG (Wednesday, 8.00pm)

Reigning champions Bayern Munich prepare to take on old foes and last season's beaten finalists Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday night.

Nearly eight months have passed since Kingsley Coman propelled Bayern to European glory with a 1-0 win over PSG in the 2019-20 final, and the two giants head into this game following contrasting fortunes in their domestic ventures.

Bayern's quest for a ninth Bundesliga title gathered steam with a 1-0 win over RB Leipzig, but PSG's trophy hopes took yet another significant hit with defeat to Lille by the same scoreline.

We say: Bayern Munich 2-1 Paris Saint-Germain


Bayern have goals in abundance even without Lewandowski and his golden touch, but the Bavarian giants cannot expect to march to an emphatic first-leg victory like they did against Lazio, even with PSG stuttering in Ligue 1.

The two teams both know each other's strengths and weaknesses as they prepare to renew hostilities once again, and a spate of PSG absences could help determine the tie in Bayern's favour, so we are backing a narrow first-leg triumph for the reigning champions.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or draw.
