April 24th: Wednesday’s European Double – 4/1 Special, Betting Tips & Predictions

With the likes of Ligue 1 and the Premier League stealing centre stage on Wednesday night, we have a stacked schedule from across the continent.

Watching the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool and French giants PSG all feature on Wednesday night, there are plenty of eye-catching betting markets.

So, for those of you looking to stick on a midweek flutter, we have found a pair of the most intriguing betting tips.

18:00 Lorient vs PSG

Mounting what was a stunning Champions League comeback away at Spanish icons Barcelona last week as they punched their semi-final ticket, PSG have their sights firmly set on making major history this season. Eventually producing an iconic European turnaround in Catalonia as they secured a 4-2 aggregate victory, Luis Enrique’s men are once again breezing their way to another domestic crown.

Last seen making another statement as they secured a 4-1 romp against historic rivals Lyon, the French giants have also continued to gain a reputation for their free-scoring performances in the final third.

While Kylian Mbappe’s future in Paris might have continued to steal most of Europe’s headlines, the red-hot Goncalo Ramos is enjoying a major clinical spell.

Bagging a brace against Lyon last weekend and gaining plenty of recent plaudits, the former Benfica starlet has now registered 11 goals across all competitions since opening the New Year.

Although Lorient might have sprung a Ligue 1 upset last season as they secured a top-half finish, Wednesday’s hosts have come crashing back down to earth this time around.

Putting in another nightmare performance last week as they slumped to a routine 3-0 drumming at the hands of Nice, Regis Le Bris’ men are sat three points adrift of top-flight safety and tipped as a leading relegation contender.

Signing off March with a 1-0 loss at home against Brest, the Brittany-based outfit have collected just a single point from any of their previous five Ligue 1 appearances.

Facing what is a monumental challenge when the French giants arrive at the State du Moustoir on Wednesday night, it should also be noted that Lorient have lost their last three consecutive showdowns in front of their own supporters by an aggregate score of 4-0.

20:00 Manchester United vs Sheffield United

While Manchester United might have eventually avoided an infamous FA Cup exit over the weekend, it is no secret that the Premier League heavyweights are in the midst of another extended rut. With continued speculation over Erik ten Hag’s long-term future at Old Trafford, Wednesday’s hosts will know the importance of claiming a crucial domestic boost here.

However, while the former Ajax boss might have a real headache over his side’s glaring defensive struggles, fans around the red half of Manchester will be excited by Bruno Fernandnes’ recent purple patch.

Once again finding the net away at Wembley on Sunday afternoon, the Portugal international has now registered seven goals in his previous eight appearances for club and country.

Now facing a major uphill battle in their bid to claim any kind of European finish this season, there is no doubt that United will need their attacking talisman firing on all cylinders here.

While Sheffield United might have secured a Premier League return this season, the Blades have continued to break a string of unwanted records and they are at the heart of a public crisis.

Last seen over the weekend putting in a woeful performance at Bramall Lane as they slumped to a 4-1 drumming at the hands of fellow strugglers Burnley, Wednesday’s guests are sat rock-bottom of the table.

Limping their way to an immediate Championship return and shipping 88 Premier League goals so far this season, Chris Wilder’s men have continued to show a host of glaring issues at both ends of the pitch.

Collecting just three points from any of their previous nine consecutive Premier League appearances, the Blades are once again pencilled in as a landslide underdog at Old Trafford.
