Paris Saint Germain vs Galatasaray
UEFA Champions League
Date: Wednesday 10th December 2019
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Parc des Princes (Paris).
PSG have already qualified for the knockout rounds and are in 1st place with 13 points. They will play Galatasaray who are bottom of the group and with 2 points cannot qualify but could still qualify for the Europa League.
The Turkish team may have a chance too given that Club Brugge their rivals for 3rd are playing Real Madrid in Belgium. Real Madrid have already qualified for the knockouts.
PSG will be the favourites to win this game, but it is questionable whether the coach Thomas Tuchel will pick a strong team given that his side have already qualified.
PSG are very strong in Ligue 1 yet again and are in 1st place and are also on form. The team come into this game with a lot of confidence and they have really stepped up since Neymar came back from injury. At home PSG have beaten Real Madrid and Club Brugge.
Galatasaray are yet to win in the group and have lost 3 of their five matches and drawn the other two. Away from home they drew 0-0 against Club Brugge but lost 6-0 against Real Madrid. A similar score line could have happened tonight but is it possible PSG will not be at full strength.
Perhaps the biggest worry for the away side is that they have only scored one goal in their group games.
PSG vs Galatasaray: Head to Head
In recent times the clubs have only met once, earlier in this group where PSG won 1-0.
PSG vs Galatasaray: Prediction
Until we officially know the teams it is very hard to make a prediction, but we can expect Tuchel to change at least half his starting up line up.
PSG really only have the motivation to do well to keep a winning run together but unless they lost heavy which won’t happen this match will soon be forgotten.
For Galatasaray they have to win but the problem they have is one eye on Club Brugge who as it stands look set to finish 3rd and qualify for the Europa League. PSG are as low as 1.10 which is simply a market that needs to be avoided given the circumstances.
Instead we will back the away side on the handicap, because even if PSG do win, we don’t expect a big score.
