The UEFA Champions League continues this afternoon with some exciting games to look forward to, highlighted by the clash between Spanish giants Barcelona and Italian champions Juventus. This match is also a repeat of the 2015 Champions League Final.

We’ve looked through all the big games and have come up with a four-game parlay that pays +845 with DraftKings Sportsbook – more than 8/1. We’ve included two games that kick off in the early afternoon, and two that start a little later.

Let’s get into Wednesday’s free Champions League parlay picks. Feel free to add, subtract or mix and match plays which you like. Be sure to check out our other picks for Europe’s elite soccer competition.

Chelsea to beat Krasnodar – Money Line (-275) 1.55 p.m ET

Chelsea has made the long trip to the Russian south to take on Champions League first-timers Krasnodar and Frank Lampard’s Premier League aces can claim a precious win.

Both games in this group last week ended in ties so it’s all to play for and Chelsea is playing this game at exactly the right time.

Chelsea has lost only one of nine matches this season – and that was against reigning champions Liverpool – while poor Krasnodar is in the middle of a major injury crisis which threatens to ambush any hopes they have of qualifying.

PSG vs. Istanbul Basaksehir – Both teams to score (-115) 1.55 p.m ET

Istanbul Basaksehir and Paris Saint-Germain suffered defeats on day one which should mean both teams go all out in the Turkish capital.

There was no surprise that Istanbul lost 2-0 at Leipzig, who were Champions League semi-finalists last season. But PSG’s shock home loss to Manchester United came from out of nowhere and the French powers need to hit back.

PSG is very short odds and that’s to be expected but Okan Buruk’s group outsiders warmed up for this game with a 5-1 win over Antalyaspor, with Edin Visca and Irfan Kahveci on the scoresheet for the second league game in a row.

R.B. Leipzig to beat Manchester United – Draw no bet (+138) 4 p.m ET

Top spot in the German Bundesliga is normally reserved for Bayern Munich – they’ve won it for the last eight years – so the fact that Leipzig is in first place at the moment tells us plenty about their caliber.

Okay, the German season is only five matches old but Leipzig is an emerging force in Europe, having reached the Champions League semi-finals in the summer, and they have nothing to fear at Manchester United.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United have been up and down all season and have won only one of their last seven home matches.

Barcelona vs. Juventus – Both teams to score (-182) 4 p.m ET

Both Juventus and Barcelona have shown enough defensive lapses in recent weeks to suggest we should expect goals at both ends in this game.

With just two shutouts in their last five matches, and goals conceded against Roma, Crotone, and Verona, Juventus has been uncharacteristically sloppy in their own third over the past month, and Barcelona has the pedigree and class to take advantage.

However, Barca has also gone five games without a shutout while the Italian champions have scored in every game this season.
