We had a winning bet with William Hill in going for both teams to score in the Paris Saint Germain vs Chelsea London Champions League match, in which the hosts were the favorites to win, and they did so in a thriller 3-1 match in which two of the goals were scored by Chelsea players.
Before the match, there was this eternal debate on whom would people choose between Lavezzi and Hazard and as the match ended the obvious answer was that yes, both of them are very good. It started off with Lavezzi opening the score for PSG after John Terry thought he was clearing a dangerous PSG shot with a header. The ball ended reaching Lavezzi instead who had no problem putting it past Petr Cech.
Thiago Silva involuntarily handed Chelsea a goal when he made a late challenge on Oscar inside the box, for which the referee gave a penalty. Hazard had no problem converting it, thus bringing a knowing smirk on Mourinho’s face. It ended up being wiped right off his face after the same Lavezzi executed a free kick, made the entire Chelsea defense look ridiculous and forced David Luiz to score an own goal, as the Brazilian failed to react in time to clear it.
PSG ended up being the better team even in the second half as they were struggling to score another goal while Chelsea were working around their ever known, park the buss tactic. In the dying minutes of the match Pastore scored a wonderful 3-1 goal and gave the hosts closure on a wonderful night, when he managed to leave Lampard, Terry and even Azpilicueta dizzy while putting Petr Cech in an impossible situation to catch the ball.
Result: +8 units, bet won
