Paris Saint-Germain Odds-On to Beat Leipzig

Paris Saint-Germain find themselves in a spot of bother at the halfway stage of Champions League Group H after suffering two defeats from their first three matches and there’s big pressure on Thomas Tuchel’s side to claim a victory against their German opponents on 24 November.

Where Has it All Gone Wrong for PSG?

It’s entirely possible that Paris Saint-Germain’s Champions League exploits of last season is catching up with them, with the players struggling domestically on French Ligue 1 when they returned to action and that has spilled over into European football, with Manchester United winning at the Parc des Princes on 20 October 2020.

It appeared that the ship had been steadied when Moise Kean scored a brace away to İstanbul Başakşehir in the following match although a 2-1 reverse away to RB Leipzig has put PSG back in trouble and the bookies now only make them slight odds-on that they qualify to the last sixteen of the competition.

You might argue that Thiago Silva’s departure to Chelsea has made the defence more unstable although Idrissa Gueye and Presnel Kimpembe ill-discipline means that both players will be suspended for this clash.

Should Paris Saint-Germain Be Odds-On For This Match?

PSG are surprisingly short priced favourites to win this Champions League clash on 24 November, with Tuchel’s men no bigger than 7/10 for the victory and we’re not sure you can hang your hat on the French champions considering that they’ve already fluffed their lines against Manchester United on home soil.

Yes, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe can blow any opposition away on their day, although those defensive issues could be a problem and RB Leipzig don’t need to go chasing the victory considering a draw would suit them well at this point in proceedings.

Can Leipzig Claim a Champions League Double Over PSG?

RB Leipzig began with a 2-0 win over İstanbul Başakşehir before losing heavily at Manchester United, although a 2-1 victory over Paris Saint-Germain means that they are on course for the last sixteen of the competition and let’s not forget that this team went to the semi-final stage of the Champions League last term, with Julian Nagelsmann’s side potentially tempering their attacking strategy for this clash now that the job has been done.

Emil Forsberg continues to be an influential player for the German side and now plays in a more advanced role after Timo Werner’s departure to Chelsea, although it could be a case of sitting tight and hoping to expose dangerous opponents on the break.

What Are the Best Bets For This Match?

Let’s firstly start by opposing Paris Saint-Germain as there’s no solid evidence that they will bounce back from this latest setback and we will once again reiterate that the suspensions to Idrissa Gueye and Presnel Kimpembe are going to make an impact on the French champions.

You can potentially bet on the draw if you’re looking at the 1x2 betting market although we think that the better ploy is to try and get with RB Leipzig on the Asian Handicap betting market and it’s your call as to whether you back the German side off scratch or take some kind of insurance by backing them with a +1 start or even a +1.5 start.

PSG have managed to find the net in all three Champions League games to date and we think that the “Yes” option on the Both Teams to Score betting market is attractive on this basis, while if you’re looking to back Paris Saint-Germain, then you can back them to win and also both teams to find the net.
