PSG amongst the favourites should the Champions’ League return this season

PSG are now amongst the favourites for the Champions league title, following progressing past a resilient Dortmund side. This has now seen many punters using betting promo codes on offer to support them in the outright markets, with just Manchester City and Bayern Munich sitting above them in the betting.

However, the competition has now been postponed with no likely date given, as to when this is likely to return. This is due to the ever-rising crises caused by the Coronavirus, when is continuing to cause problems around the world, with endless cancellations of events. It has not only led to domestic leagues around Europe grinding to a halt, such as the Ligue 1 but also the European championships have now been moved to 2021. The Olympic games has also now followed suit, which gives a further indication of just how serious the situation is at present.

Istanbul were set to host the men’s final on May 30th, so the question continues to rise as to whether or not the competition will be played again this season.

The French champions have been ultra-impressive in the competition this season and have now reached the final eight. They were impressive winners over Borussia Dortmund in the round of 16, progressing through 3-2 on aggregate. PSG were beaten 2-1 away from home in the opening leg, as Erling Braut Haaland starred for the German side, with two second half goals. However, Neymar picked up the all-important away goal, which set the side up well to progressing through.

PSG then won the return leg 2-0 at home, in front of an empty stadium. Neymar again got on the scoresheet, with an early goal, before Bernat made it 2-0 at the end of the first half. This turned out to be the final goal of the game, with PSG progressing through as the much-deserved winners.

This victory continued their very impressive season to date, as they had previously topped Group A in the competition, against Galatasaray, Club Brugge and of course 13-time winners Real Madrid. This included a 3-0 home victory over Real Madrid in the opening fixture of the competition, as the visitors failed to produce a single shot on target.

PSG topped Group A having picked up 16 points from a possible 18, winning five and drawing one. This included them scoring 17 goals and conceding just two. They now continue their progression and this could just be their year they finally land the title, but will they even get the opportunity?
