Anderlecht vs PSG
UEFA Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 18th October 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stade Constant Vanden Stock.
Anderlecht conceded six goals without scoring a single in opening two losses to Bayern Munich and Celtic and they don’t have much to hope for this Wednesday when they host the Group leaders PSG.
The visitors have already done most of the job in the battle for securing the top spot in the Group B two weeks ago when they trashed the Bavarians 3-0 at Parc Des Princes and they now only have to beat Anderlecht twice and Celtic at home to grab the pole position ahead of the knockout stage draw.
We could be in for a real goal fest at Stade Vanden Stock since Anderlecht will come into the game on the back of a seven-goal thriller with Mechelen in First Division A.
Hein Vanhaezebrouck’s side came out victors netting four goals, but they are still at the fifth position in the domestic league because of the vulnerabilities shown in the defensive line.
Les Parisiens will be ruthless in punishing all errors at the back as they truly seem to be super impressive in the final third at the start of the season.
Unai Emery’s men bagged eight without conceding as ingle in opening two Champions League outings and we can only expect them to continue in such fashion this Wednesday.
Anderlecht vs PSG: Head to head
The two sides met each other in the group stage of the competition four years ago when PSG cruised past the Belgians 0-5 at Stade Constant Vanden Stock.
The rematch, interestingly, saw Sporting snatching a point by holding PSAG to a 1-1 draw at Parc Des Princes.
Anderlecht vs PSG: Prediction
Emery rested his top scorer Edinson Cavani in a narrow 1-2 win at Dijon on Saturday (a brace from Meunier made the difference for Les Parisiens).
The Uruguayan striker is expected to be back in the team for the Champions League action and we believe the attacking trio will be able to produce three or more goals past vulnerable defense of Anderlecht’s with ease.
