Paris Saint-Germain vs Liverpool | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
This is the derby of the whole round. Saints are welcoming Liverpool in what might be a crucial match for the future of both sides. As predicted, Group C is one of the most interesting in the Champions League, and several surprising results have put all the teams here in a position which allows them to dream about the knockout stage. Whoever loses here, will be in a tough situation during the last round, and will not depend only upon himself.
Liverpool has 6 points, and they are currently tied with Napoli in the first place. PSG has one point fewer, and Red Star has 4. This weekend, the Parisians faced Toulouse and won minimally, 1:0, with Edinson Cavani finding a net. Liverpool was confident on the road, and they defeated Watford with 0:3.
The biggest story in Paris does not concern the game, but off-field problems PSG has encountered with. Kylian Mbappe and Neymar are injured, and these two will probably miss Wednesday’s game. Besides that everything is perfect for the Saints. They have 8 wins, and 2 draws over the last 10 games overall. When looking at the games at Parc des Princes, it is even better. Tuchel’s boys recorded 9 wins and only one draw. During that time, PSG scored three or more goals on seven occasions, and the total goal difference is 35:6. Now, that is something impressive. Only one game during that streak went under 2.5 goals, and only two didn’t see four goals. This pretty much tells you everything about their efficiency.
The Reds shocked everybody by losing in Belgrade against the Red Star. It was something nobody could have anticipated. And it was something which deeply disturbed Liverpool’s plans for the knockout stage. Instead of heading for France without any pressure, and having the luxury to wait for the opponent to open and attack, and then use your lethal counter-attack, the Reds are the ones who need to be aggressive. Despite having a solid overall record this season, Liverpool is a bit inconsistent on the road in the last few weeks. Victories against Watford and Huddersfield were overshadowed by defeats in Naples and Belgrade, along with managing to get only one point in London when facing Arsenal. Four of those five events outside Liverpool ended with moderate efficiency, 2 or 3 goals.
Latest Team News
As we said the biggest blow for the Saints is the possible absence of Neymar and Mbappe. That would decrease their offensive potential a lot. Jese is doubtful for now. On the other side, the Reds are coming to France without Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who is sidelined for a long time, and without Lallana, which shouldn’t be such a handicap.
The only match we could have found was the first-round clash at Anfield when Liverpool won 3:2. If you remember, Roberto Firminho was the savior of the Reds back then with a last-minute dagger, in the injury time.
Odds and Predictions
The bookies have noticed Liverpool’s issues with away games and awarded a favorite status to PSG. The victory of the hosts is set at 2.10. If Liverpool triumphs you will multiply your investment 3.10 times, and a draw is 3.80.
Paris Saint-Germain vs Liverpool | Top Betting Tip: Draw (1-1)
Without Neymar and Mbappe, PSG is not a club capable of defeating Liverpool, no matter how they perform away from Anfield. Still, we can’t see them losing at home, which is why we think that it is best for you to chose a draw as the final outcome. Liverpool has certain issues on the road, and that was our main reason for picking this option. PSG is efficient, but that rule only applies when they have Neymar and Mbappe. With them out of the picture, those numbers drop. The hosts will score at least one goal, and we are pretty sure that the Reds can do the same thing. Because of that, we propose the final result, PSG – Liverpool 1:1.
