The Betpal Football Bet of the Day heads for France on Tuesday night, and the clash between Valenciennes and PSG. The Parisians have spent big money in order to conquer first France, and then Europe, but they are not having it all their own way in Ligue 1.
Match: Valenciennes v PSG
Bet of the Day: Lay PSG
Best Odds: 2.03 at Betfair
Kick Off: 18:00 11/12/2012 (GMT)
The expectations at PSG are huge after the summer spending spree headed by the signing of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and while their start to the season has been good by normal standards (2nd in the table and Champions League progress) they are still the subject of criticism in France, and remain under significant pressure. They have won eight of sixteen overall, and three of seven away games in Ligue 1. With those statistics in mind, and the strengths of hosts Valenciennes, a price hovering around even money looks too short for the away win. Valenciennes are undefeated at home, winning five and drawing three. They have conceded just four goals in front of their own fans. They dished out a 4-1 thumping to 3rd placed Marseille and will be keen to add the free spending PSG to their list of scalps. It will not be an easy trip.
