Red Star Belgrade vs PSG
UEFA – Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 11 December 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Stadion Rajko Mitic (Belgrade).
One of the most interesting matches in Tuesday’s Champions League schedule is going to be contested between Red Star and PSG.
Although they are the European Champions Cup winners, Serbian side has been out from the biggest scene for a long time. This is their first participation in the current format and although they’ve been drawn in the toughest group, the hosts are still in the game for the 3rd spot.
Red Star lost all three times when playing away from home by conceding a total of 13 goals, but their displays at Stadion Rajko Mitic are totally different. Marko Marin and the lads managed to hold top placed Napoli to a goalless draw in the premier round, while they’ve booked an impressive 2-0 victory over Liverpool.
PSG have been perfect in the Ligue 1, but in the last two rounds they missed the chance to win. However, they are still confident on the top spot and they can focus on securing their place in the knockout stage in the Champions League. They are sitting on the 2nd spot and the victory will see them through.
However, this trip won’t be easy for them although Kylian Mbappe and the lads are strong favourites. Neymar is doubtful for this match, but he could recover from injury.
Red Star Belgrade vs PSG: Head-to-head
In their first clash in Paris, French champions have been very confident in a 6-1 victory, but that was really poor performance from Red Star. Red and whites managed to celebrate a victory in the friendly cup held in Chicago back in 2010.
Red Star Belgrade vs PSG: Prediction
Although the bookies give minimal chances to Red Star to avoid a defeat in this one, the hosts might put another extraordinary display in front of their great crowd. They still haven’t conceded at home and in this one they might remain undefeated once again.
PSG are lethal for the oppositions’ goalkeepers, but red Star conceded just twice in their last nine matches at Stadion Rajko Mitic in European cups. The crowd should be able to see a tight match which should remain under 2.5 margin.
