Napoli vs PSG Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
This Tuesday, Napoli will host PSG at the Stadio San Paolo. The two teams are known for their attack-oriented style of football so a lot of chances and excitement are to be expected.
Napoli are placed second in Group C with five points and a positive goal difference of +1. So far in the season, they have drawn twice and won a single game. They drew with Red Star Belgrade in their opening game and suffered a two-point deficit because of it. In the previous round, they faced PSG and drew with the score of 2-2. The first half was as chaotic as one might expect, but we have seen just one goal in it. Insigne scored mid-first half to take his squad up front. In the sixty-first minute of the outing, Rui M. scored an own goal and equalized. Just a few minutes later, Mertens scored and provided the lead. When all seemed lost, Di Maria stepped up and secured a draw in the third minute of the second-half stoppage time. The two sides were equal in almost all aspects of the game and the draw comes out as a fair outcome to this match.
PSG are placed third in their group with four points from a win, a draw, and a loss. They suffered a defeat to Liverpool in the first round and went on to get a win against Red Star Belgrade in the second. In the third round, they faced Napoli and got a point from a draw. Both teams had plenty of shots and it is a miracle that we haven’t seen more than four goals in that game. They seem to be in great form in away matches as they have four wins and a single loss from the previous five. It is worth noting that they are on a three-game winning streak in away games.
The two teams have faced each other just once, in the previous round of their group campaign and it will be interesting how this clash unfolds. Both sides are desperate for points from this one as a defeat could mean elimination from the competition.
