PSG News and Form
PSG were unravelled by a late Liverpool strike in their opening group stage game, suffering a 3-2 loss at Anfield. But they bounced back in the best possible way with a huge 6-1 win over Red Star Belgrade in Paris on match day two. With no clean sheet under their belt then and facing a strong Napoli side, both teams to score is at 8/13 odds* (betting odds taken on October 22nd, 2018 at 3:46 pm). PSG are a powerful side in front of goal and they are on an eighteen match scoring streak in the Champions League. They rattled off a record 25 goals in last season’s group stage.
Neymar scored a hattrick against Red Star and the Brazilian is at 8/15 odds in the anytime goalscorer market* (betting odds taken on October 22nd, 2018 at 3:46 pm). They have some pretty big home form too as they have only suffered two defeats in their last 48 European home fixtures, winning 31 of those games. However, they were on a four-match losing streak in Europe before beating Red Star Belgrade on match day two of this campaign. PSG to win & both teams to score is at 8/5 odds* (betting odds taken on October 22nd, 2018 at 3:46 pm)
Their record against Italian opposition is pretty ropey, to say the least as they have won only two of their previous 18 fixtures against Italian clubs. Their overall record stands at W2 D7 L9 against Italian opponents in European competition. But they are in good form at the moment with them having posted a wonderful W12 D0 L1 record in all competitions this season, with the only defeat there happening against Liverpool. They have scored at least three goals in every game played this season except in that Champions League loss against Liverpool (they scored just twice).
PSG v Napoli Head to Head
PSG and Napoli have met just once before in the 1992/93 UEFA Cup
PSG won 2-0 away from home
There was a 0-0 draw between them in Naples
Napoli News and Form
Red Star Belgrade held Napoli to a surprise 0-0 draw on match day one, but then Napoli responded with an important home win over Liverpool on match day two. That Carlo Ancelotti’s Napoli (a former PSG boss of course) fully in the race for qualification. They have won their last three games in all competitions and are W5 L1 in their last six fixture, with the only defeat there coming against Juventus in a big Serie A clash in Turin. Napoli are scoring well but are underdogs here so a PSG 2-1 correct score is at 7/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 22nd, 2018 at 3:46 pm).
From their five previous visits to France, Napoli have won three of them, including their last two there. They were in France last season in the Champions League play offs, winning 2-0 at Nice. Napoli were actually on a four-match losing streak on their travels in European competition before that point at Red Star Belgrade, so they are winless in five on the road. They do have their own scoring power as the Italians have scored at least two goals in five of their last six games, taking a clean sheet in four of their last five. Dries Mertens is their shortest priced option at 15/8 in the anytime goalscorer market* (betting odds taken on October 22nd, 2018 at 3:46 pm)
Who will win – PSG v Napoli Predictions
Neither are going to give the other an easy game and this should be fascinating. Napoli are strong, but the scoring threat of PSG on home soil really may just be the difference maker at the end of the day. Home win & over 2.5 goals.
