On Wednesday night, Paris Saint-Germain will travel to St James’ Park to take on Newcastle United in a thrilling Champions League Group F match. On the opening day of play, Les Parisiens defeated Borussia Dortmund 2-0, while Eddie Howe’s team struggled to a goalless draw away at AC Milan.
Paris Saint-Germain vs Newcastle United
Newcastle United had a sluggish start to the season but have improved greatly lately. They defeated Burnley 2-0 at home at the weekend, extending their unbeaten streak to five games across all competitions. They dropped their previous three games before that. Although Newcastle had given up six goals in those defeats, they have recently recorded five straight shutouts.
That includes traveling to Milan for their season debut and earning a respectable goalless draw there. Additionally, they defeated Manchester City last week in the Carabao Cup. Newcastle currently occupies the eighth spot in the Premier League, four points off the top four. Newcastle’s home performances will be crucial in this incredibly difficult group.
PSG’s Ligue 1 campaign hasn’t gotten off to the best of starts. They are currently in an unusual fifth place after seven games but are only two points behind the top Monaco. Their most recent Ligue 1 match ended in a disappointing 0-0 stalemate at bottom-of-the-table Clermont.
The Parisians remain unbeaten away from home this year, but in their three league games, they have only recorded one victory and two draws. As a result of their 2-0 victory over Borussia Dortmund at home, they are already in an excellent spot in this group. The red-and-blues’ Champions League away record isn’t terrific, with just two victories in their last nine games. They will have to continue their protracted quest to win the Champions League as long as things remain that way.
The coveted PSG player missed Saturday’s goalless draw at Clermont due to an ankle injury sustained in the first half against Marseille but is expected to play on Wednesday.
The 24-year-old, who has scored half of PSG’s goals in competitive action this season, was back in training and prepared to play, according to Luis Enrique, but he might not play the entire 90 minutes, which would greatly increase Newcastle’s chances.
Both teams have recently appeared to be quite strong defensively, with PSG keeping the opposition at bay in their past three games and the Magpies recording five straight shutouts.
The last five games Newcastle United have played at St James’ Park have all ended with goals. Paris Saint-Germain has scored in four of their previous five games, both at home and away. The Parisians have also given up goals on defense in four of their last five competitive road games against teams other than Parc Des Princes.
After holding clean sheets against Burnley and Brentford in their previous four Premier League games, Newcastle United have conceded goals in two of those games. We anticipate a BTTS result in this match between the sides, given the scenario.
