Meanwhile, PSV host Barcelona and Inter Milan head to Tottenham
There is no doubt about the key fixture in the UEFA Champions League this coming Wednesday night (28 November). French league champions PSG welcome English giants Liverpool, while on the same evening Spanish league title holders Barcelona head to PSV and Tottenham welcome Italian outfit Inter Milan to Wembley as the group stage begins to draw to a close prior to the winter break.

As a new customer and with the Champions League group stages set to draw to a close, there should be a wide range of promotions and special offers available to you.
Where should I be investing my money?
First up, PSG welcome Liverpool to the Parc des Princes. Liverpool’s hopes of qualification are hanging by a thread after they were defeated by Red Star Belgrade last time out, and the Reds need to go all out and try and secure all three points in the French capital.
PSG, meanwhile, boast a 100 per cent record in Ligue 1, but it is fair to say that they face no tests on the domestic front as stringent as this one. It is also worth pointing out that Liverpool won the corresponding fixture, 3-2, back at Anfield two months ago – it remains PSG’s only loss this season, while Liverpool have won just two of their last six games on the road.
And it is indeed PSG who come into this match as the favourites to take the points. You can more than double your money by backing PSG to win at 2.10, while Liverpool are out at 3.30 to do the same – a draw would appear to be the least likely outcome and is priced accordingly at 4.00, according to Oddsshark.
And we are expecting Liverpool’s bold style of play to pay dividends. A narrow, 2-1 away win for the Reds is priced competitively at 11.00, thereby offering more than a ten-fold return on any investment, while you could more than quadruple your money by backing a combo bet of a Liverpool win coupled with both teams to score, which comes in at 4.75.
PSV out to upset Barcelona in Eindhoven
PSV may have a 100 per cent record in the Eredivisie, but their Champions League form has left a lot to be desired this season. They have just pride to play for when Spanish league champions Barcelona come to town on Wednesday, with the Catalan club only dropping their first points in the continental competition last time out in a 1-1 draw with Inter Milan at the San Siro.
To little surprise, it is visitors Barcelona who come into this match as the red hot favourites to pick up a win on the road. You can back Barça to take all three points at just 1.50 while PSV, despite home advantage, are out at 6.50 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 5.00.
And this should be a comfortable evening’s work for the Catalan giants. A comfortable, 3-1 win for Barça comes in at 11.00, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$55 pay out, with Ousmane Dembele – who netted at the weekend away to Atletico Madrid – at 2.05 to get on the score sheet once again.
Spurs need three points against Inter
And finally, Tottenham Hotspur simply must take all three points when Inter Milan come to town if they are to have any hope of reaching the round of 16. Spurs have a mountain to climb, needing three points here and then a result against Barcelona on the final day – they currently sit three points behind Inter in the group.
Inter won the corresponding fixture 2-1 back in September and are in pole position to grab second place. The Italians can afford to play for a draw at Wembley.
But it is home side Tottenham who come in as favourites to seal a vital victory. You can back the Londoners to snatch the points at just 1.75, while Inter are out at 4.80 to seal a win on the road – a draw is priced in the middle at 4.00.
A 2-0 win for Spurs is priced at 9.00, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$45 pay out. You could also more than double your money by backing under 2.5 goals in the game, which comes in at 2.20.
