Play that funky music
This is a bittersweet week for myself and all the soccer lovers out there. It’s sweet cause we get another glorious CL semi final slate right in the middle of the work day. It’s beautiful. What’s bitter though is that this is the last one. The final isn’t two legs that take place while you’re avoiding your boss. So let’s soak in the Champions League midweek soccer we are lucky to have, cause it’s not coming back until the Euros. Banging out both games in this board. Mount up cause we’re going to battle, let’s ride.
Game 1 of the semis is today at 3 between PSG and Man City. City have a 2-1 league aggregate lead and are heavy favorites after getting those two away goals last week. Expect PSG to come out hot cause they need the goals, but I think City will end up advancing. Taking a 1H draw at +150 and the over of 3 goals at -105.
Wednesday is the game I have my eyeballs on between Real Madrid and Chelsea. A 1-1 last week in Madrid gives Chelsea the slight edge as they head into Leg 2 at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea have been damn good at home, but something about Zidane in these big games is making me taking Real Madrid ML at +230. Call me Barney Upsets.
That’s it folks. I’m predicting Man City v. Real Madrid in the final on May 29th. I’ll be in Vegas for that. The stars will be aligned for that pick… or I’ll end up walking back to Philly from the desert. Kick it easy.
