This is no ordinary Wednesday, this is a post Cheltenham, pre-international break Wednesday. And while most of the lads put their feet up and jet off to Dubai after making their excuses ahead of, largely, some pretty-pointless friendlies, the ladies are still going full throttle in the Women’s Champions League and Women’s Super League.

WELCOME TO PADDY POWER NEWS!

There’s some tasty ties to mull over this midweek with Manchester City v Everton and a London derby in the shape of Chelsea v Tottenham in England’s domestic top flight. In Europe’s premier competition it’s knockout time and Juventus v Lyon and Arsenal v Wolfsburg in the quarter final first legs.

We’ve got some of the biggest and best teams in the business in action with everything on the line. It should be and exciting midweek of women’s footy action so let’s try and unearth some winning value with a four-fold acca.

5.45pm: Juventus v Lyon – Lyon (-2)

TV: DAZN and DAZN YouTube

We kick off in the Champions League quarter finals where Group A runners up Juve host Group D winners Lyon. The French side cantered through the group but The Old Lady just snuck past Chelsea in a group that saw three teams finish on 11 points.

Lyon are huge favourites here and it’s easy to see why. Juventus have been struggling for goals a bit both domestically and in the Champions League. The same can’t be said for Lyon who who have scored three or more on seven occasions in their last 13 in all competitions. They don’t concede much either and I fancy them to have too much firepower for Juve and to pass the Lyon (-2) handicap.

7pm: Man City v Everton – Man City (-2)

TV: The FA Player

To another one-sided clash, this time in the Women’s Super League. Manchester City have been having a bit of a disappointing time of it and they’re 4th, 11 points off leaders Arsenal and three points behind Manchester United who occupy the final Champions League spot, thought they do have this game in hand to potentially bridge the gap.

Everton are pottering along in lower midtable and are safe from the drop given Birmingham City’s plight at the foot of the table. They’re 9th and have just 12 points fewer than City. The Toffees won’t be looking forward to this one, especially after City hammered them 4-0 in the FA Cup at the weekend. We can expect a similar result here.

I think the price on Man City (-2) in the handicap markets is a fair one and one I expect them to pass with relative ease. City have now won 14 of their last 16 in all competitions and they should make that 15 from 17 on Wednesday.

7.45pm: Chelsea v Tottenham – Chelsea (-2)

TV: Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League

Defending Super League champions Chelsea continue their title push away at old rivals Tottenham here, knowing that a win in this game in hand will put them one-point clear of Arsenal at the top of the table.

Spurs have their own ambitions to worry about, though, and they need a win to keep their Champions League hopes alive. They’re a point behind City and four behind United with a game in hand on the Red Devils.

These two still have to play each other home and away this season but Chelsea ran out 4-0 and 0-2 winners last term. The Blues have scored an average of 2.4 goals a game this season, conceding just 0.4 per match.

They’re betting going forward and at the back than their cross-city rivals and I think we might see something similar to that 4-0 dismantling at Kingsmeadow last season again. As such, I’m happy to take Chelsea (-2) on the handicap.

8pm: Arsenal v Wolfsburg – Wolfsburg to Win

TV: Arsenal.com, DAZN and DAZN YouTube

Arsenal just edged past Hoffenheim to make it to this stage while Wolfsburg won Juventus’ group to make it this far. This is a tricky one to call and Paddy’s odds suggest this is a genuine 50/50 match up.

Both sides can be brilliant but both are also prone to the odd duff result. However I just think Wolfsburg have been getting better results against better sides in this competition than the Gunners.

Arsenal swept aside minnows Koge but lost to Barcelona and Hoffenheim in the group stages in their final two matches. Wolfsburg, in contrast, pumped Chelsea 4-0 at home and got a draw away while also holding Juventus to a stalemate in Turin.

This could go either way and I wouldn’t put you off any of the three results but, just looking at their continental form, I feel like we have to side with Wolfsburg to Win here. Their extra bit of nous at this stage in this competition could prove vital, despite Arsenal’s red-hot Super League form.
