The headlining act of today’s football betting tips is the huge Champions League semi-final first leg between PSG and Man City in Paris.

That should be a cracking fixture in such a high-pressure stage of the competition.

With that being the feature match for today’s football betting, we are also looking at a couple of domestic league games from continental Europe for our tips.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: PSG v Man City

Can Manchester City, who just claimed the EFL Cup title on Sunday against Spurs, gain a first-leg advantage in this semi-final Champions League tie?

This is going to be a tough one on the road for them, but the Citizens are the 23/20 favourites for the win on the night.

This is their third two-legged knock out tie in Europe against French opposition and City are W1 L2 from the previous three.

Man City have already been to France this season, taking a win at Marseille in the group stage. That’s a W1 D2 L1 match record in France that they have.

The overall match record that Manchester City have against French clubs is W4 D3 L3.

PSG are a big threat here, even though they are the 2/1 underdogs in the match outright.

They claimed a 5-2 aggregate victory over Barcelona in the round of sixteen and look like a confident team.

In the quarterfinals, they claimed victory over Bayern Munich on away goals after a dramatic 3-3 aggregate score.

So clearly the goals are flowing from them.

Considering they lost two of their first three matches this season in the competition, can’t be counted out of this.

Man City boss Pep Guardiola has won 10 of 18 previous head to head clashes with PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino (D5 L3).

We don’t see a big margin between the two on the night, but PSG getting an advantage wouldn’t be a surprise.

PSG to win at 2/1

Football Betting Picks Today: Athletic Bilbao v Valladolid

We are in the Spanish top flight next for today’s football betting for a look at Athletic Bilbao v Valladolid.

The home side are 5/6 to claim the victory on the night.

Bilbao are in the middle of the table and far away from the top six.

They have earned a W8 D4 L4 record on home turf in the top flight and they have a stretch of undefeated home form going.

Athletic Bilbao are W3 D4 in their last seven home fixtures.

Considering that they are taking on a bottom-three side, then they look a decent option to get behind them.

It is a six-match undefeated streak of form that they are on home and away, drawing five of those.

Athletic Bilbao have conceded at under a goal per game this season, so they should be able to keep the visiting Valladolid at arms’ length.

Valladolid did get a 2-1 home win over Athletic Bilbao earlier this season.

But they are 9/2 underdogs to complete the double for the season over them.

From their six away games played against teams current only the top seven, Valladolid have lost five, failing to score in any of those losses.

It is a seven-match winless streak of away form that they are on, but there has been some recent resilience there.

Valladolid have drawn four of their last five league away games.

So they may not go down without a fight, but we do expect them to come up empty-handed against Bilbao’s good home form.

Athletic Bilbao to win at 5/6

Football Betting Tips for Today: Greuther Furth v SV Sandhausen

This is action from the second tier in Germany as Greuther Furth look for further points to push towards automatic promotion.

They are sitting in second place in the table after the last round of action.

Greuther Furth suffered a loss against St Pauli in their last fixutre, ending a run of five undefeated in the league (W3 D2).

It has been a home record of W7 D3 L4 this season for Greuther Furth.

Three of those four losses at home have been suffered against teams currently in the top six.

Their midweek opponents are far from there, sitting just above the drop zone instead.

Greuther Furth claimed an easy 3-0 win at Sandhausen earlier this season.

Bet at Bet365

Their record, home and away, reads W8 D3 from their eleven games played against teams currently in the bottom six.

Sandhausen are fourth from the bottom but have hit a nice bit of form.

They are on a three-match winning streak, but those have all been at home.

There is a quote of 9/2 on them picking up the road win on Wednesday.

While Sandhausen actually have a good strong home record, their away form is just miserable.

It is a W1 L12 record on the road from them.

Greuther Furth to win at 3/5
