Prediction and odds for the game: PSG (1/3) vs Juventus (8/1)
We are backing PSG half-time/full-time at odds of 21/20
When: Tuesday 6 September 2022, Kick-off 20:00
Where: The Parc des Princes
On Tuesday night, PSG host Juventus in Group H of the Champions League, as both teams attempt to make a winning start to their European campaign.
The reigning French champions have made an unsurprisingly strong start to the new campaign. Christophe Galtier’s team have won five of their opening six games in the French top flight. The Parisians have also been lethal in front of goal, scoring at least two goals in each of their league victories. Attacking duo Neymar and Kylian Mbappe have both scored seven league goals each in just six league appearances.
The home side will kick off the current Champions League campaign as one of the favourites to finish as European champions. PSG only made it to the last 16 of the Champions League last season, only to suffer a 3-2 aggregate defeat to eventual winners Real Madrid. A 3-1 second leg defeat in Madrid in that tie means that the French side has won just two of their previous five matches in the Champions League.
However, PSG has won their last four home games in the Champions League while scoring at least two goals in three of the four wins.
The Bianconeri have made a mixed, if unbeaten start to the new Serie A campaign, taking nine points from their opening five league matches. A 1-1 draw at Fiorentina last time out in Serie A means that Max Allegri’s team has now drawn three of their previous four games. The Bianconeri’s recent league matches have been low-scoring affairs, with under 2.5 goals scored in their last four league outings.
Like their opponents, Juventus exited the Champions League at the last 16 stage last season, suffering a surprise 4-1 aggregate defeat by Spanish team Villarreal. A 3-0 second leg defeat in Turin was a particularly disappointing result.
The Villarreal tie from last season means that Juventus have won just one of their previous four games in the Champions League.
The team from Turin have an inconsistent recent away record in European football’s elite competition, as they have won just two of their last five league games on their travels. Their recent away games in Champions League have been relatively high-scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in five of their last seven away matches in the competition.
PSG are dominating their domestic league once again and will have high hopes of finally claiming their first-ever Champions League crown. Juventus have not been at their best this season and should have taken more points from their Serie A fixtures.
We are backing PSG to be winning at half-time/full-time, as we believe PSG could have too much quality for the visitors. The other bet we are backing is over 2.5 goals, as this could be a high-scoring encounter.
Our Tips: We are backing PSG half-time/full-time at odds of 21/20 and/or over 2.5 goals scored at odds of 1/2. (All odds are taken from Bet365)[geosnippet id=3620]
