Paris Saint-Germain vs Napoli | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
Group C of the Champions League is one of the most interesting in the last couple of years. Three teams who could easily reach the semifinals of this competition are fighting for the first two places, and this Wednesday, Paris Saint Germain will host Napoli in a match which might decide a lot of things here.
PSG lost to Liverpool in the first round, and after that, they schooled Red Star with 6:1 in Paris. In the domestic championship, the latest victim of the Saints was Amiens, who was sent home with five goals in their net, 5:0. Napoli shocked Europe once they failed to defeat Red Star in Belgrade, but quickly bounced back with a win over Liverpool in Italy, 1:0. In Serie A, they ran through Udine, defeating Udinese with 0:3.
The main reason for PSG’s popularity in the last few days are the illegal activities which happened before their game with Red Star Belgrade when one of the officials of the Serbian club wanted to fix the match and secure his team’s loss bt five or more goals difference. But we do not want to talk about that. The Saints are in excellent form, with 6 straight wins in which they dominated every time, and where they simply outplayed their rivals with style. Check this data. The overall goal-difference during that span was 26:3. This tells you a lot of things. When looking only the matches played in Paris, the statistic is even more terrifying for the rivals. In each and every clash at Parc des Princes this season, PSG scored at least three times.
We have to say that Carlo Ancelotti probably busts his guts for not winning the whole prey in Belgrade. Napoli totally underestimated Red Star, who was defending fiercely. With that three points and a win over Liverpool, the Pantheropei could go to Paris in a more relaxed mood. Now, they need to grab at least one point in order to stay in the race for the second round. Napoli looks solid, and they have three wins in a row, five in the preceding six events. The defensive part of the assembly is getting along just fine, and they prevented the rivals from scoring in last three games, which means that Ancelotti’s work is giving positive results.
Latest Team News
PSG will be without Gianluigi Buffon who has one more match suspension, after last year’s outburst against Real Madrid. Lavyin Kurzawa, Dani Alves and Colin Dagba are ruled out because of injuries. The guests are coming to the City of Light with several questionable players. Ghoulam, Meret, Verdi, Younes, and Luperto are not certain to play. All the prognosis are saying that they have more chances to play than to skip the match, but just in case you have to check on them this Wednesday. Insigne is out, which is a huge blow for them.
PSG and Napoli met in the 1/16 finals of the UEFA Cup back in 1993. The French team defeated the Italians in Naples with 0:2, and some two weeks after that, the rematch ended without winners, 0:0.
Odds and Predictions
The bookies are heavily favoring the Saints and the odds on their win are at 1.40. A draw is set at 4.75, while Napoli’s triumph might multiply your stake seven times.
Paris Saint-Germain vs Napoli | Top Betting Tip: PSG (3-0)
We haven’t seen such a terrific attacking team like PSG for a long time. As soon as they open the defense for the first time, the rivals are helpless. Mbappe, Neymar and Cavani are living nightmares for all the defenders they face. Against Napoli, things are not going to be much different. We do respect the Italians, but to be honest, they have nothing to hope for in Paris. Especially without Insigne. It is why we strongly suggest betting on the hosts. The second proposition would be PSG wins halftime/fulltime, and for the more courageous ones, PSG to score in both halves. In the end, PSG – Napoli 3:0.
