PSG Prediction – Can PSG win four on trot?

Despite all the rumoured unrest behind the scenes at PSG, Wednesday night’s hosts have made a good start to their new Ligue 1 campaign as they’ve assumed their familiar role of pole position at the top of the domestic division, winning 4 of their first 5 matches of the new campaign.

Wins against Nimes 3-1, Toulouse 4-0, Metz 2-0 and a 1-0 win against Strasbourg have helped the Paris side to the top of Ligue 1 and not even a surprise 2-1 loss to Rennes kept the pre-season title favourites down for long.

Goals have also featured in PSG’s matches of late too as 3 of their 5 Ligue 1 matches to date have resulted over 2.5 goals, and their overall goalscoring exploits in the Champions League have also contributed to 13 of their last 15 matches in this competition have also seen 3 goals or more scored.

This is hardly surprising with the likes of Cavani, Mbappe and Icardi in their ranks along with Choupo-Moting, while former striker Neymar has re-joined PSG this season.

Real Madrid Prediction – Can Real Madrid start firing?

Visitors, Real Madrid, have made a promising start to the new Spanish top flight season under manager, Zinedine Zidane, who is in his second stint at the club, and he’s overseen early victories over Celta Vigo 3-1 away and a 3-2 home win against Levante, although the latter wasn’t an entirely convincing win.

Draws with Real Valladolid 1-1 at home and a 2-2 draw away from home at Villarreal have seen the hosts pick up points but have also resulted in Real Madrid conceding in each of these 4 league matches too, which raises a few concerns over the straight win market for the Madrid side.

Real Madrid’s exit to Dutch side, Ajax, in last season’s Champions League was perhaps the culmination of a number of factors which contributed to their dip in form and previous swagger, but the goals have also continued to flow where Real Madrid have been involved too.

They too have seen 13 of Real Madrid’s last 15 Champions League ties resulting in over 2.5 goals, and with Zidane back at the helm and a plethora of attacking options at his disposal with the likes of Eden Hazard, Bale, Benzema (who has netted 4 goals already) and Rodriguez amongst their personnel, the visitors should also score here.


Key-Facts – PSG v Real Madrid

  • 13 of PSG’s last 15 Champions League ties have resulted in over 2.5 goals
  • 13 of Real Madrid’s last 15 Champions League ties have resulted in over 2.5 goals
  • The last 3 meetings between these two sides have also seen over 2.5 goals


Betting Tips Verdict

Both teams are capable of scoring goals almost at will but both also have question marks over their defensive capabilities – but we should see over 2.5 goals scored in this one.
