The hosts will be without Neymar for this crucial Champions League contest and it’s imperative that Unai Emery’s side make a fast start against the holders. The La Liga outfit have been in poor form recently but bounced back with a 3-1 win over Getafe on March 3rd. They have struggled for consistency this season, although they rarely put in an underwhelming display in this competition. Ladbrokes make PSG 11/10 favourites for this tie.

Elsewhere, it’s practically job done for Liverpool, who host Porto at Anfield and can afford to rest a few players against the Liga NOS side. Betfair make the Reds 1/2 favourites.

Manchester City can also expect a straightforward 90 minutes against Basel at the Etihad. The Citizens come off the back of an energy-sapping Premier League encounter with Chelsea and Pep Guardiola is likely to make a few changes for this clash.

NetBet have Spurs at 23/20 to win inside 90 minutes against Juventus on March 7th. Mauricio Pochettino’s side fought back from a two-goal deficit to take something back to Wembley and they are now in the driving seat. They will be hoping to pull off a huge coup and dump last season’s finalists out of the competition.

Arsenal Could Struggle at the San Siro

It’s been a forgettable few weeks for Arsenal and they won’t relish the trip to Italy to take on an in-form AC Milan side. The hosts have been priced up as 11/10 favourites. They take on a Gunners side who lost to Brighton on March 4th and were defeated by Swedish minnows Ostersunds in the previous round of the competition. Other standout Europa League games this week include Marseille vs Athletic Bilbao, RB Leipzig vs Zenit and Borussia Dortmund vs Salzburg.
