PSG vs Newcastle United: Team news, prediction, odds, betting tips and best bets for Champions League match

In Champions League Group F, it’s make or break time as Paris Saint-Germain looks to exact retribution on Newcastle United in Paris on Tuesday.

When the two teams played again in early October at St James’ Park, the French heavyweights were thoroughly humiliated by Eddie Howe’s Magpies. On that occasion, the Premier League side won comfortably 4-1, sending Kylian Mbappe and company packing from the north east of England in humiliating fashion.

It’s going to be a completely different matchup this time, as PSG has won all seven of their Ligue 1 matches since that setback, scoring three or more goals in each of those games.

There’s also the reality that Newcastle enter here with a long list of ailments that they’re currently dealing with, and despite thrashing Chelsea 4-1 in league play last weekend, this match will be one of their most tough assignments in recent club history.

PSG is without a few key players, including exciting teenage midfielder Warren Zaire-Emery, who is sidelined with an ankle injury. Marquinhos, Nuno Mendes, Presnel Kimpembe, and Keylor Navas are all sidelined, leaving Enrique with a bare-bones defence. PSG have a lot of alternatives going forward, and it’s all about finding the correct balance since Les Parisiens will have a lot of the ball and will have to be patient.

Newcastle has a slew of injury concerns (see the list below), therefore Howe will almost certainly start with the same side that defeated Chelsea last weekend. Can that same group perform with the same intensity and enthusiasm away from PSG? Newcastle will most likely stay back and defend, like they did in their 0-0 draw against Milan in their Group F opening.

PSG vs Newcastle best bet

Despite the fact that Newcastle hammered Chelsea for foul goals at the weekend and put the same amount past PSG in the rematch, we anticipate them to suffer a little more here.

The French champions have looked a completely different side since their setback at St James’ Park, winning seven of their last eight matches, with the one blemish coming in a 2-1 defeat away to AC Milan in this tournament.

In those eight games, they’ve kept four clean sheets, and with Newcastle still dealing with injuries, they might be tired today given the tight turnaround from Saturday’s game and the flight to Paris.

Looking at the goalscoring odds for this match, it’s no surprise to see Kylian Mbappe set in front considering his recent form. However, at -150 to score at any point, supporting him now isn’t really worth it.

As a result, we’re going to bet with Vitinha to score anytime for PSG from midfield at +500 with DraftKings.

Since joining from Porto for a sizable amount in July 2022, the Portuguese midfielder hasn’t exactly lit the world on fire, but his current form indicates a man who is dripping with confidence.

He’s scored three goals in his last six league games, including one against Monaco on Friday.

 

That leaves him well placed both to start and potentially score here and at +500 with DraftKings, backing this selection could offer some great value.
