This week marks the second leg of the Champions League semi-finals. Paris-Saint Germain faces Dortmund, and Real Madrid plays Bayern. They’ll decide who reaches the final at Wembley Stadium next month.
Alan Brazil has selected some talkSPORT BET boosts for punters on the two Champions League clashes.
Kylian Mbappe thrives in big events like this. He was key in France’s bid to win the World Cup in 2022. In what should be his final year at Paris-Saint Germain, Mbappe gets another chance. He can add a trophy this season.
He has scored eight goals already this season in the Champions League from just 11 appearances. They need to overturn a 1-0 deficit at home. It has the makings of a great clash.
This season, Emre Can has just five yellow cards in the Bundesliga from 24 appearances. However, when it comes to the UCL, he has been booked four times in just nine appearances.
Can will be up against a lot of attacks that Paris-Saint Germain will likely produce. He has to stay strong against any players who can draw a lot of fouls. In Dortmund’s bid to hold the lead, he may need to put in a few big challenges.
Jude Bellingham, as well as Harry Kane are the most likely to score for their own respective teams. The stars of England this season are playing for their clubs abroad. Both are also thriving in La Liga and Bundesliga.
Real Madrid always find a way to get through in the Champions League. They also have the added benefit of the home advantage. This season is where they’ve been virtually unstoppable.
