Our soccer experts have picked out their Champions League best bets for each of those games, with each scheduled to kick off at 3:00 pm ET on Paramount+. You can also check out our soccer predictions for more Champions League picks as well as our EPL best bets each week.

Real Sociedad vs PSG best bet: PSG ML (+175)

Real Sociedad topped their Champions League group for the first time in their history this season but their memorable campaign looks set to come to an end when French champions PSG come to visit on Tuesday. La Real are in poor form going into this second leg – losing 5 of their last 6 in all competitions – and defeat to La Liga strugglers Sevilla on the weekend saw Imanol Alguacil’s men drop out of the top 6. Their record at the Reale Arena recently does not bode well for Tuesday’s result, with Sociedad failing to win at home since November and losing 3 of their 5 games here in 2024. PSG – who were 2-0 winners in the first leg in Paris – will be going into the second leg with supreme confidence as Luis Enrique’s men are on a 20-game unbeaten streak in all competitions.

Bayern Munich vs Lazio best bet: Both teams to score (+102)

Bayern Munich’s 1-0 defeat to Lazio in Rome was part of a 3-game losing streak for the German giants and it certainly was a night to forget for Thomas Tuchel’s team. They failed to register a single shot on target at Stadio Olimpico and their form has not improved much since, tying with inconsistent Freiburg in the Bundesliga on Friday night. However, while they were unable to even test Ivan Provedel in the first-leg, they are ruthless in front of goal at the Allianz Arena and should be able to find the net and keep their quarterfinal hopes alive on Tuesday.

Bayern have scored 45 goals in their 15 home games this season, suggesting they should give the Munich faithful something to cheer in the second leg. But they are unlikely to be alone in finding the net, as Lazio have more than enough talent in their ranks to make their mark. The Roman club have scored in 6 of their last 7 games and have seen both teams find the net in 6 of their last 7 Champions League road games.
