Champions League Tips: Both AC Milan and PSV to net

Mario Balotelli could be one of those on the scoresheet

Back both teams to score at the San Siro as part of our look at three of Wednesday's Champions League qualifiers...

"PSV will have had half an eye on their match in Italy and having scored six goals in their previous two away matches, they will be quietly confident of finding the net against a Milan side lacking in confidence."
Best Bet: Back both teams to score @ 1.715/7

AC Milan v PSV, Wednesday 19:45, Sky Sports Interactive, Match Odds: AC Milan 1.695/7, PSV 65/1, The Draw 4.1

AC Milan scored a valuable away goal as they drew 1-1 in Eindhoven but this play-off tie is by no means settled, with the Italian side's defensive frailties highlighted by their 2-1 loss to Hellas Verona on the opening weekend of the Serie A season.

PSV dropped their first points of the Eredivisie season when they drew 1-1 at Heracles, but the Dutch side will have had half an eye on their match in Italy.

They scored six goals in their previous two away matches and PSV will be quietly confident of finding the net against a Milan side lacking in confidence.

Although a 0-0 draw will see them through, Milan will be aware of their defensive problems and keen to claim a confidence boosting win, so backing both teams to score at 1.715/7 looks a smart choice.

Best Bet: Back both teams to score @ 1.715/7


Real Sociedad v Lyon, Wednesday 19:45, Sky Sports Interactive, Match Odds: Real Sociedad 1.9720/21, Lyon 4.3100/30, The Draw 3.8514/5

Lyon's fine start to the season came to an abrupt halt when they were beaten 2-0 at home by Sociedad in the first leg of this tie, and they followed that defeat with a 1-0 loss to Reims at the Stade de Gerland.

However, their away form has been impressive this term, with two wins from two, and they are well placed to spring a surprise on the Spanish side even if they do not progress to the group stages.

Lyon are good value to win against a Sociedad team whose concentration could slip after they seemingly sealed their progression with the win in France.

Recommended Bet: Back Lyon to win @ 4.3100/30


Zenit St Petersburg v Pacos Ferreira, 17:00, Sky Sports 1, Match Odds: Zenit St Petersburg 1.321/3, Pacos Ferreira 1312/1, The Draw 5.85/1

A Roman Shirokov hat-trick in Portugual helped Zenit to a 4-1 away win and finished the tie as a contest, but there is no reason to suspect that either side will limit their attacking intent in the second leg and backing over 3.5 goals at 2.8615/8 could be a winner again.

Zenit have scored eight goals in their past two home matches, and with Pacos likely to come at them in a vain attempt to get back into the tie, the Russian side could win the bet even if they do not get any help from the visitors.

Recommended Bet: Back over 3.5 goals @ 2.8615/8
