Barcelona play host to Paris-SG in a Champions League quarter-final second leg clash on Tuesday 21st April, find out how the football betting offers at William Hill can benefit your Barcelona v PSG bets.
It’s advantage Barcelona after Luis Suarez scored a fantastic brace following Neymar opening the scoring in the first leg at Parc des Princes, but a late own goal by Jeremy Mathieu gives PSG a glimmer of hope with the score at 3-1 heading to Camp Nou. The French side will still have to score at least 3 times to have any chance of making it through and you’d expect Barca to to find the net at least once themselves in front of their own fans, so PSG are understandably long-odds outsiders to qualify for the semi-finals.
Barcelona have subsequently beaten Valencia 2-0 in La Liga, while PSG won 1-3 away to Nice in Ligue 1, so may have restored some confidence and they’ll be hoping to get an early goal to silence the Catalan crowd.
Tuesday’s match will be shown live on ITV 1 at 19.45 and will be eagerly watched by both casual and professional gamblers looking to make a profit on what should be an interesting encounter. One way that you can increase your chances of winning long term, is to take advantage of the free bet offers available at William Hill, to add a level of protection to your Barcelona v PSG bets.
Bore Draw Insurance
Last week’s 1-3 in Paris was the fifth time in five meetings that both of these teams have found the net, so a bore draw would seem unlikely, but it is worth bearing in mind that PSG have been involved in three 0-0 draws this season, while Barcelona have contested a couple of goalless draws themselves.
In the unlikely event that Barcelona v PSG does finish 0-0 and ruin your bet, William Hill will refund all losing Correct Score and Double Result(HT/FT) bets on the match as a Free Bet equal to your stake, capped at a maximum of £50.
Goalscorer 2nd Chance
Punters who backed Neymar to score first last week will have been laughing, while those who took a chance on Suarez opening the scoring will have at least got their stake back as a free bet thanks to William Hill’s Goalscorer 2nd Chance offer after the Uruguayan netted the second goal.
Lionel Messi still leads Barcelona’s scoring charts with 8 Champions League goals and will be as popular as ever in the First Goalscorer market for the return leg, while Luis Suarez and Neymar have 6 and 4 goals respectively and will be well backed as viable alternatives to the main man after they both notched in Paris.
PSG will be counting on Edinson Cavani to get the goals they need to boost their chances of making it through to the semis, and with 6 Champions League goals to his name already this season, he’ll be a popular First Goalscorer punt for those fancying the visitors to draw first blood. He’ll be flanked by Javier Pastore and Ezequiel Lavezzi who each have claims in their own right, while Blaise Matuidi has notched twice in the competition from midfield.
Whoever you plump for in the First Goalscorer market, use William Hill for the added protection of a free bet refund, should your losing selection then go on to score the second goal of the game. Goalscorer 2nd Chance entitles qualifying customers to a free bet refund of up to £50.
