iBet: Paris believe they have to score twice at Camp Nou
Champions League Quarter Final Second Leg
Barcelona V Paris SG, kick off 7.45pm, Sky Sports 2
Back both teams to score at 5/6 (Boylesports)
Lay Juventus at 2/1 with Betfair
With Barcelona scoring twice in the first leg, a 0-0 draw is no good to Paris and there could once again be goals at both ends. In fact striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been telling his manager Carlo Ancelotti in no uncertain terms that they will need to score at least two. And he’s talking sense, because Barcelona always score at Camp Nou. Yet they have also been conceding too many, including in two of their three group games at home. Paris have scored in their last seven Champions League ties and, Messi or no Messi, the value may be to back both teams to trouble the scorer. In the other second leg match, regular readers will know that I fancy Bayern Munich to win the competition and while Juventus is a very difficult place to go and win, if they can withstand the early onslaught the Italians might open up too much as they go in search of goals and I fancy the Germans to at least secure a draw. You can lay the home side at just over 2/1 with Betfair.
Paddy Power have installed GoalControl as the 6/5 favourites to win the contract to supply the Premier League with goal line technology next season. The German firm was recently awarded the FIFA contract for the Confederations Cup this year and the World Cup in 2014. British company Hawk-Eye, who supply solutions for cricket and tennis, are 6/4 with Cairos 11/2 and GoalRef 10/1. The decision will be made tomorrow.
