Paris Saint-Germain – Newcastle United betting tip
For many, it is the villainous duel par excellence, the downfall of traditional soccer. No question: when PSG and Newcastle United face each other on Tuesday evening, there is plenty of fuel for the fire.
Both clubs are financed by Qatar and Saudi Arabia respectively and stand in stark contrast to the teams from Milan and Dortmund in Group F.
But far from these discussions, the “Cashico” is also about the sporting side of things. And the penultimate matchday of the group stage is a tough one
For the home side, it’s all about taking a huge step towards the knockout phase. With six points, they are currently in second place behind BVB.
The visitors, on the other hand, are almost doomed to win. Bottom of the table, they could keep their chances of reaching the round of 16 alive with a three-pointer on Tuesday.
My PSG Newcastle tip is for a lively game in which there could be goals on both sides, as in the first leg
The bookmakers’ prediction
Before kick-off, the French are the clear favorites in the PSG Newcastle betting tip. For the bookmakers, the first leg no longer seems to carry too much weight.
However, the Magpies were already in a supposed underdog role in that 4-1 win. They only bounced back impressively from the international break at the weekend with a 4-1 win over Chelsea.
Therefore, the predictions for the double chance bets in this match could be interesting. Bookmakers such as Bwin are predicting odds of over 2.00 if the English do not lose
Analysis: PSG vs Newcastle
However, the home side’s current form would suggest otherwise. Even if there is always background noise at the Eiffel Tower, coach Luis Enrique has managed to get the squad on track.
The French side have won all of their last six home games in all competitions. They have even kept a clean sheet in five of them.
The Parisiens have yet to concede a goal at home in the top flight. However, with the exception of the last two home games, they have lost four of their last six CL matches
For the first time since the 2002/03 season, Eddie Howe’s side could lose three Champions League games in a row.
With numerous injuries and key player Sandro Tonali suspended, the Magpies are certainly feeling the strain.
However, after two 2-0 defeats in the league and the top flight before the international break, they won 4-1 on Saturday. So they are back on track
In the Champions League, however, England are still waiting for their first away goal. They drew 0-0 against Milan on the first matchday and 2-0 against BVB just over three weeks ago.
Will they finally break the curse and score a goal? The bookmakers at DAZN Bet, where the DAZN Bet bonus is currently available, are predicting odds of around 1.50.
Much more decisive, however, is who can gain an early advantage in this presumably tight game. The predictions in the PSG Newcastle betting tip are clearly on the side of the home side.
As they have scored the first goal in each of their last eight competitive matches, the optimism of the Oddset bookies is not surprising.
Before kick-off, they are predicting a value of just over 1.50 should the French score the first goal of the evening
PSG need a three-pointer
Anything can still happen in Group F. As predicted shortly after the draw, anyone could beat anyone here so far.
With six points, the Parisiens are certainly not through yet. But a win against the Magpies would put them in a good position ahead of the final matchday in Dortmund.
However, the French side have lost two of their last three CL games (1S). They recently lost to Milan before the international break – despite the aforementioned lead.
Paris have never lost two matches in a row in the top flight since 2004. In front of a home crowd, however, things have mostly gone well here. They have won eight of their last ten home matches in the Champions League
Newcastle arrive with a tailwind and fresh legs
The return of key players such as Aleksandar Isak and Bruno Guimarães was an important finding for Newcastle United after matchday 13 in the Premier League.
The Swede returned from injury with a goal, while the Brazilian returned to the starting eleven after serving his yellow card suspension.
When the Magpies have their squad together, they are extremely difficult to stop. In this respect, the international break came at the right time for Eddie Howe.
With fresh legs, the visitors could now set their sights on the round of 16. However, they will need a better attacking performance to do so. They managed just 16 shots on goal in Milan and Dortmund
The two teams faced each other once before in October. Back then, the Magpies swept the Parisiens out of the stadium 4:1.
However, those were the only goals scored by the English side since then. However, it showed how variable the squad can be.
Seven different players scored themselves or set up a goal. So it’s by no means a one-man show for them
For the French, however, it’s all about keeping calm and keeping players like Isak or Anthony Gordon in check.
The home side have lost six of their last eight games against English teams. So there is also an old curse to break
The fact that the visitors have not scored a goal in the Champions League since the first leg also had personnel reasons. However, these now seem to have been largely resolved.
With the furious attacking line-up of Mbappe, Dembele & Co. you can always expect something from the home side anyway. I therefore see them as having a slight advantage in a close match.
My PSG Newcastle betting tip is therefore: Paris won’t lose and both teams will score
