Midweek Mix: PSG statement, Chelsea momentum and AC Milan v Man United

We are in store for an exciting midweek of European football with key second leg ties taking place in both the Champions League and Europa League. Here's what's coming up...

Manchester City vs Borussia Monchengladbach (Champions League) - Tuesday 20:00 GMT

Man City already have one foot in the Champions League quarterfinals following their 2-0 first leg win over Gladbach. This Tuesday, Pep Guardiola's men will be looking to avoid an upset and officially confirm their place in the next stage of the competition.

Anything can happen in European football but even the most optimistic of punters wouldn't back the Germans this midweek.

Marco Rose's men have lost six consecutive games across all competitions and look a shadow of the team they were just a few months ago.

Only one winner in this one.

Betting: Half Time/Full Time Man City/Man City at 5/6 (bet365)

Real Madrid vs Atalanta (Champions League) - Tuesday 20:00 GMT

If there is to be a shock in the Champions League this midweek, it will most likely come at the Alfredo di Stefano stadium.

Real Madrid lead Atalanta 1-0 ahead of the second leg and this small margin could easily be overturned by the Italians.

Atalanta have scored 63 goals this season in Serie A - just two short of league leaders Inter - and if they bring their goalscoring boots to Spain's capital, we may see a major upset.

Betting: Atalanta to win at 21/10 (bet365)

PSG vs Lille (Coupe de France) - Wednesday 16:45 GMT

The two frontrunners in the French title race will put their league ambitions to one side as PSG and Lille meet in the Coupe de France.

Whoever wins this game will not only book their place in the quarterfinals of the competition but put themselves in contention for a potential double-winning season as well. 

With the two clubs set to square off in the league next month, this cup tie could also give one of these sides an opportunity to make a statement of intent ahead of that much anticipated April clash.

Nevertheless, the under 2.5 goals bet is the way to go here. The last three games between these clubs have only produced four goals and another close contest is expected.

Bayern Munich vs Lazio (Champions League) - Wednesday 20:00 GMT

A 4-1 away win over Lazio in the opening leg means that this Wednesday's fixture is nothing more than a formality for Bayern Munich.

The Bavarians seem to have rediscovered their frighteningly good form and have scored 16 goals from their last four games.

Lazio, on the other hand, have lost three of their last four games and are unlikely to threaten at the Allianz Arena.

Robert Lewandowski to score and Bayern to win is probably the most popular bet in world football at the moment but why change when it works…

Chelsea vs Atletico Madrid (Champions League) - Wednesday 20:00 GMT

Chelsea's Timo Werner has scored one goal from his last 13 appearances

Thomas Tuchel's unbeaten run as Chelsea boss was extended to 12 games last weekend as his Blues drew 0-0 with Leeds United.

They might not be blowing teams away at the moment however, one thing that Tuchel has done is turn Chelsea into an incredibly hard team to beat.

One side that could certainly threaten their unbeaten run is Atletico. The Spaniards are no strangers to winning big games in England and they're well priced to do so again.

Arsenal vs Olympiacos (Europa League) - Thursday 17:55 GMT

Last time Olympiacos turned up to the Emirates stadium, they pulled off an incredible 2-1 win over Arsenal to knock the Gunners out of the Europa League.

The chances of this happening again are slim. Unlike last season, Arsenal lead 3-1 on aggregate and are coming into this game on the back of a North London derby win.

Arteta's men should qualify for the next round without too many dramas… then again, it is Arsenal we're talking about.

Betting: Arsenal to win 2-1 at 7/1 (bet365)

Dinamo Zagreb vs Tottenham (Europa League) - Thursday 17:55 GMT

Tottenham were on the losing end of last weekend's North London derby but that shouldn't stop them from confirming their place in the next round of this competition.

Spurs have improved recently but they've still lost five of their last seven away games. Meanwhile, they're taking on a team which hasn't conceded a single goal in over 540 minutes of football at their home ground in Zagreb.

Jose Mourinho's men should progress but Dinamo are capable of at least a draw at their home ground.

Betting: Draw at 13/5 (SkyBet)

AC Milan vs Manchester United (Europa League) - Thursday 20:00 GMT

AC Milan's stoppage time equaliser in the opening leg has left this tie finely posed ahead of Thursday's rematch.

With the score at 1-1, Man United need at least one away goal in order to seal their place in the next round of the competition.

The good news for the Red Devils is that they are the awayday specialists this season. AC Milan, meanwhile, are on a four-match winless run at the San Siro.

This could be a good night for Solskjaer's men…

Betting: Manchester United to win 2-1 at 8/1 (William Hill)
