Football Betting Tips
Known as 'Dare To Zlatan' off late, Swedish national team captain, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, has taken the French Ligue 1 by storm since his big-money move from AC Milan in 2012. The lanky striker currently leads the charts as the league's top goalscorer with 25 goals. His team are also comfortably sitting on top of the French Ligue 1 standings, and are favourites to land the title with seven games left. The French side were knocked out at the same stage last season by Barcelona, and will look to go one better this time around. Chelsea on the other hand are starting to feel the pressure in their domestic league after being leapfrogged off the top of the English Barclays Premiership by Liverpool, following their shock 1-0 loss to Crystal Palace at the weekend.
Following their CAF Champions League exit disappointment, Kaizer Chiefs are looking to redeem themselves tonight when they take on relegation threatened Golden Arrows. Amakhosi are currently tied on the same points(49) with title contenders, Mamelodi Sundowns, who are breathing down their necks. Stuart Baxter's side face a tricky home fixture with a side desperate to pick up points in order to retain their PSL status.
Orlando Pirates have managed back-to-back wins in league and cup fixtures under Vladimir Vermezovic, since their 1-0 loss to Kaizer Chiefs in the Soweto Derby a fortnight ago. The last time these two sides met, the score was deadlocked at 1-1. Pirates welcome a Black Aces side that has been on a roll since Clive Barker took over the reigns. AmaZayoni are currently sat at position eight on the Absa Premiership table, and 'The Dog' has reiterated his ambitions to take the side to a top four finish.

PSG V CHELSEA
League table: PSG 1st and Chelsea 2nd
Useful facts: PSG are destroying everybody in France with Zlatan Ibrahimovic leading the charge. This means a slightly wounded Chelsea will have to put up a big showing in the French capital. Jose Mourinho’s men appear to be stumbling in the English Premiership title race of late.

Masebe Qina: No way Chiefs will lose. Win for the Glamour Boys.
ORLANDO PIRATES V BLACK ACES
League table: Pirates 4th and Aces 8th
