A thrilling 3-2 win over Paris Saint-Germain back in September appeared to pave the way for Liverpool to qualify from Champions League Group C although it hasn’t quite worked out like that.
Reds Need a Win
Despite hammering Red Star Belgrade 4-0 at Anfield, the Reds have been unable to land a point from trips to Naples or Belgrade, meaning that the English side sit second in a tightly-bunched section and they can ill-afford a defeat on Wednesday night.
Jurgen Klopp has twice left been scratching his head due to the team’s inability to score away from home in Europe, with an insipid display against Napoli followed by conceding two first-half goals in Belgrade and being left to chase the game.
It’s an altogether different kind of challenge that awaits them in Paris, with PSG the Ligue 1 champions and full of goals as they have demonstrated when bagging eleven goals in their opening four encounters. This makes over 3.5 goals at 13/10 with BetVictor look enticing.
PSG’s Form Suggests a Draw
They come into this match off the back of two consecutive draws against Napoli which doesn’t suggest that they’re a great bet to win the clash and it’s sometimes hard to judge a team who has such striking home form but not necessarily in the most competitive league. A 2-2 draw here may be of interest to some at 10/1 with Bet365.
There are the obvious pin-up boys in the form of Kylian Mbappe and Neymar, although Edinson Cavani is probably the most effective of the three due to his ability to track back and win the ball for his team.
It was the Uruguayan who recently bagged a hat-trick away to Monaco, with the combative Adrien Rabiot proving adept in the engine room although Thomas Tuchel will want his side to get on the front foot and we could see the net bulge several times.
