Liverpool vs PSG Predictions

When the balls for Champions League Group C were drawn a few weeks ago the sense of anticipation and excitement was palpable. Having the free scoring Napoli in a group alongside potential whipping boys Red Star Belgrade was one thing, but Liverpool smashed the record for most goals scored in a Champions League last season and PSG broke their own record, scoring more group stage goals than any other team in history.

Between them, these two teams scored an absurdly high 192 league goals in a combined 76 matches last season, as well as their aforementioned Champions League exploits. Liverpool finished as runners up to the ever-dominant Real Madrid, while PSG’s journey was ended by the same opponents earlier in the season.

Liverpool, who are touted as the likely challengers to Manchester City in the Premier League this season, have started the new term as strong as ever. They beat Tottenham 2-1 on Saturday afternoon to maintain their 100% record this season, with a thrashing at home to West Ham being followed by victories over Crystal Palace, Brighton, Leicester, and Spurs.

PSG won’t be fazed by that record though. They won the Ligue 1 title by 13 points last season and don’t look remotely like giving up their trophy this term. Their 4-0 demolition of Saint-Etienne on Friday made it five wins from five for them, and that came after a 4-0 hammering of Monaco in the French Super Cup.

The French powerhouses have already scored  21 competitive goals this season, and since their array of superstars returned to action at the start of the Ligue 1 campaign they have been unstoppable. Neymar, Edinson Cavani, and Kylian Mbappe have notched 11 goals between them so far this season, whilst Liverpool’s front three have a slightly more modest eight between them.

However, PSG have often come unstuck away from home against the bigger teams in Europe. In fact, their last two away games in the Champions League have resulted in 3-1 losses to Bayern Munich and Real Madrid. They have lost against Real Madrid (twice), Barcelona (three times), Manchester City, and Bayern Munich in the last four years. The only so-called Champions League contenders they haven’t lost to in this time are Chelsea and Arsenal.

Meanwhile, Liverpool carved their path to the final last season in emphatic fashion as they put both Roma and Manchester City to the sword at Anfield. They beat both of these teams by a three goal margin; a 5-2 thriller against Roma and a 3-0 victory over The Citizens.

A Liverpool win could definitely be on the cards here, but even the improved Liverpool back line doesn’t look capable of keeping out PSG’s array of attacking talent. Jurgen Klopp’s men have conceded in their last two games, and they’re facing a PSG side who have scored in each of their last eight Champions League away days.

They have scored 19 goals in these eight outings, so backing Liverpool to Win and Both Teams to Score looks a good bet here. We’re also opting for a 3-2 thriller for our correct score predictions.
