Group C Interestingly Poised
There’s only two points separating 1st from 4th in Group C following Red Star’s shock win over Liverpool in Belgrade, and a little surprisingly it’s Napoli who lead the way owing to their own victory over Jurgen Klopp’s outfit. The Parisians will know a win on the final day against the Serbians is highly likely, and should Napoli also prevail at home to the same opponents on Wednesday, that leaves Liverpool up against it in the race for qualification to the next stage.
The Reds have matured in their performances this season, adopting a more controlled and less manic approach, but with little choice but to go for it here, this should prove an entertaining and high-energy encounter from start to finish.
11 of Liverpool’s 19 Champions League matches since the start of last season have seen at least four goals, including a 3-2 result in the reverse fixture back in September. Meanwhile, PSG are certainly no strangers to high-scoring games as an incredible 13 of their last 16 in this competition have seen Over 3.5 Goals as well. Given Neymar and Kylian Mbappe have seemingly recovered and are expected to take part in training on Monday, the prospect of any deviation from the norm appears slim.
PSG were second best in the reverse fixture, but they’ve endured some terrible results on their travels in Europe’s elite club competition. Indeed, despite the injection of a sack full of cash, they’ve only beaten the likes of Apoel Nicosia, Shakhtar, Malmo, Ludogorets, Basel, Celtic and Anderlecht in the group stages since 2014/15. Meanwhile, they’ve drawn with Arsenal, Ajax and Napoli, while losing against heavyweights Barca, Real, Bayern and Liverpool. At the Parc des Princes it’s another matter however, where they’ve only lost twice in 49 European nights including knockout rounds since 2006/07, while more recently they’ve gone W19-D9-L2 since 2012/13 in the Champions League alone.
PSG v Liverpool Betting Tips
That defeat to Liverpool remains the Parisians’ sole defeat this term and they’ve since won 10 of 12 matches, though those two stalemates did come in their past two Champions League encounters in a double header versus Napoli. With that in mind, Liverpool won’t be overawed at facing them, especially after PSG were lucky to escape with a point in the game versus Napoli at the Parc des Princes.
However, with the Reds winning seven of nine unbeaten matches at Anfield in this competition since the start of last season, while only managing a W4-D2-L3 record on the road, there’s little to separate these two and the draw seems the most likely outcome. Furthermore, of the four English teams to have visited this Stadium since 2014/15 (Chelsea x2, Man City and Arsenal), three have ended in stalemates as the other saw them prevail in a tight one goal victory.
