Wednesday gives us a heavyweight clash in the City of Love between PSG and Liverpool in Group C. Currently there are only 2 points separating top from bottom with just two matchdays left. A win for either side here would be huge in their quest to get to the knockout stages.
PSG are a star studded team with the likes of Neymar, Cavani and Mbappe among their ranks but they have often flattered to deceive in the Champions League, who can forget their capitulation at the Nou Camp when holding a 4-0 lead and an away goal in the second leg. The French side have one defeat this season and it came in the reverse fixture at Anfield when they were edged out 3-2 after a late Roberto Firmino goal.
Liverpool have been in great form in the Premier League this season but they have been patchy in the Champions league. They recently lost to minnows Red Star, but they have bounced back with convincing wins in the premier league, most recently against Watford on the road.
Both sides are full of attacking talent and I think it’s fair to say that neither team would want to sit back and play out a boring draw in this one. Across 4 games PSG have scored 11 goals and conceded 7, they seem to struggle to keep out the top sides. Both teams to score in this one is 5/11 (10Bet).
With PSG not having the best recent record against “Big sides” and I think they could struggle against the Reds who look to be a better unit than the French side. Liverpool have lost just 1 match in 7 on French soil, whilst PSG are without a win in 5 games against English opposition. They’ve also failed to beat the other top team in the group, Napoli, the French side have played out 2 score draws against the Italians. You would have to be cautious in backing Liverpool outright against the talent that PSG have and I think the Double Chance market can give us some good value. Liverpool or Draw is best priced 79/100 with Marathon Bet.
This might be an easy one to pick but I like the look of backing Mo Salah to score on Wednesday. They Egyptian has 3 goals in his last 4 Premier League games and he seems to be getting back to the level he was performing at last season. He is 11/2 to score first or 6/4 to score at any time during the game. I think Salah is a good play in this one, he is the most natural finisher in the Liverpool side and the team is set up in a way that gets the best out of him. I think he could have a good night against a PSG who haven’t kept a clean sheet in Europe since their 5-0 win against Anderlecht in October 2017, since then they have conceded 15 goals in European competition.
PSG have concerns over Kylian Mbappe and Neymar with the pair missing the last match against Tolouse with injuries.
Liverpool have a slight doubt over Joe Gomez who picked up an ankle knock in training but he should be okay for Wednesday.
Potential PSG Starting XI: Areola; Meunier, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Bernat; Rabiot, Verratti; Mbappe, Neymar, Di Maria; Cavani.
Potential Liverpool Starting XI: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Wijnaldum, Fabinho; Shaqiri, Firmino, Mane; Salah.
Head To Head
- PSG wins: 6

- The Parisians have averged1.75 cards per match in the CL this season.
- PSG 11/10
- Draw 12/5
- Liverpool 23/10
This game promises to produce a lot of quality and I think PSG could come unstuck against a Liverpool side who will need to get something from the match as they face Napoli at home in their last game.
PSG might have undoubted attacking talent but they have struggled in the Champions League so far this season.
I like the double chance play for Liverpool or draw as I think they have an inform back line at the moment with Van Djik and Joe Gomez putting in some big performances for club and country. Mo Salah looks back to his best and his recent form leads me to think he can find the back of the net in this one.
