PSG vs Liverpool Betting Tip and Prediction
- Updated: 28th November 2018
PSG vs Liverpool – UEFA Champions League :PSG and Liverpool face off on the 5th matchday of the UCL’s group stage
at the Parc des Princes stadium, in Paris.
PSG is in 3rd place with 5 points after 4 matches, having 1 victory, 2 draws and 1 loss so far.
At home, they have won by 6-1 against Crvena Zvezda and drew 2-2 against Napoli. This will be the most important match and the one that will define the path of the team on the season
because a slip-up could practically knock them out still on this first stage, which would be a tragedy, while a victory practically ensures their presence on the next stage.
An early elimination could cost their manager his job and cause a revolution on the roster.
On the past week, we have had international friendlies that were not good at all for PSG, because two of their biggest stars (Neymar and Mbappé) picked up injuries on their respective matches and missed the match on the weekend against Toulouse.
The manager ensured they are both recovered and that they will play in this encounter, but we are still unsure if they are 100% fit.
The team will have to impose their offensive game and the ball possession to control the opposition, being careful not to struggle with counter-attacks and hope that their stand-out players are on a good day.
At home, PSG’s record is very good, having only 1 draw, while the rest is all victories.
However, PSG’s league average is well below their own skill level, which means the club is “poorly accustomed”, thinking they can beat anyone.
Their last 5 matches at home were:
24.11.18 LG1 PSG vs Toulouse 1-0
02.11.18 LG1 PSG vs Lille 2-1
24.10.18 CHA PSG vs Napoli 2-2
20.10.18 LG1 PSG vs Amiens SC 5-0
07.10.18 LG1 PSG vs Lyon 5-0
PSG’s probable line-up will be: Buffon, Meunier, Silva, Marquinhos and Bernat; Verrati, Rabiot, Neymar; Di María, Mbappé and Cavani.
Liverpool is leading the group with 6 points after 4 matches, with 2 victories and 2 losses. As visitors, they have lost to Napoli and Crvena Zvezda.
That loss to Crvena Zvezda was the biggest upset of the group stage so far and that can really cost the team, because they are at serious risk of being eliminated on this group stage, needing to beat Napoli on the last round and keep an eye out on the tiebreak criteria.
On the other hand, a draw could be considered a good result, because with a draw on the last round, they would ensure their qualification.
A victory means Liverpool advanced and probably knocks PSG out of the competition.
The team will count with the nervousness of the opponents and with the goals of the attacking trio formed by Salah, Firmino and Mané to get a good result.
Liverpool has been having a very good season, both at home and away from home.
However, they aren’t able to maintain their pattern of good performances away from home on this UCL, being very different from their performances in the Premier League, where they’ve won 5
matches and drew 2 (against Arsenal and Chelsea).
Their last 5 matches as visitors were:
24.11.18 PRE Watford vs Liverpool 0-3
06.11.18 CHA Crvena zvezda vs Liverpool 2-0
03.11.18 PRE Arsenal vs Liverpool 1-1
20.10.18 PRE Huddersfield vs Liverpool 0-1
03.10.18 CHA Napoli vs Liverpool 1-0
The starting line-up should be: Alisson, Arnold, Van Djik, Lovren and Robertson; Henderson, Wijnaldun, Shaquiri; Mané, Salah and Firmino.
PSG vs Liverpool – Betting Tip and Prediction:
To summarize, this will be the most awaited match of the group stage. We have two of the main title contenders possibly being eliminated in the group stage already after millionaire investments.
I believe that the home advantage gives the slight favouritism to PSG and will mean the team will take the initiative, which offers us a lot of value in taking the home side at the odds that are presented.
