PSG are at home on Tuesday, but, that seldom counts for anything much when two giants go guns blazing at each other.
It is really surprising to see PSG viewed as the bookies favourites with about a 1.71 for the home win.
Quite understandably, the Parisians have been winning in the league with very high scorelines, most recently, the 0-3 win away to Nantes.
Christophe Galtier and his players will, thus, feel extremely confident going into this one.
Juventus, on the other hand, haven’t been so convincing in the Serie A.
The form guide showed that, the Bianconerri has recorded 3 draws from their last 4 encounters. Their last match being a 1-1 away to Fiorentina.
This means that the Old Lady gave picked up only 3 points from those matches and that came against lowly Spezia.
One will argue, though, about the quality and strength of the opposition in both leagues. On that premise, the Serie A is clearly more competitive.
One thing is for sure, the Champions League is always another kettle of fish and I expect the result of this game to be much closer than the Bookmakers are suggesting.
VERDICT: I will go for a ‘Both Teams To Score‘ prediction, which goes for 1.69 points, a healthy return for bettors.
Reason: Both sides possess sufficient firepower in their Arsenal. PSG’s Frontline of Messi, Mbappe and Neymar. Juventus with Did Maria, Kostic and Vlahovic–who scored in the opening 2 minutes of his side’s 1-1 with AS Roma a while back.
Both teams have been scoring consistently since the start of this season and I expect them to nick a goal or two off each other.
