Team News

  • Kevin Gameiro, Thiago Motta and Mathieu Bodmer all sat out the lossat Nice at the weekend and all remain doubtful for this game. The former is still recovering from injury while the latter two are both lacking fitness, so this game could be a good opportunity for them to build that up.
  • Otherwise, Carlo Ancelotti has a fully fit squad to choose from.
  • Sirigu will return between the posts and Verratti will come back in to the midfield, after both were rested at the weekend.
  • Once again, Porto have very little in the way of injury worries and could field a strong lineup as they seek to secure top spot in Group A.
  • Vitor Pereira has been fairly consistent in his team selection in the Champions League this season and may well stick with this policy for the trip to Paris.

Prediction

  • It has worked out that 1st plays 2nd on the final matchday in Group A, in what is nearly a straight playoff for top spot. Porto have the advantage in that they lead the group by a point, but PSG are at home, which could be pivotal.
  • PSG have struggled recently and need a good result to turn their form around. They crashed out of the Coupe de la Ligue last week and lost at Nice at the weekend, leaving them with only 2 wins from their last 6 games in all competitions.
  • Porto lost to Braga at the weekend in the cup, but that was only the second time they have failed to win in their last 12 matches. They have a very strong team, and given PSG's recent lack of form, Porto might well pick up the point they need to secure first place.

  • PSG playing 4-4-1-1/4-2-3-1 not 4-3-3

  • Game of the day!

  • FCP will win this game. It will be tigth, and despite PSG having better players, then dont have better team. FCP will secure AT LEAST one point. Ibra will score or will make an assist, for FCP J.Martinez and J.Rodriguez will score, and maybe Lucho will remember to score again against PSG :D. It will be a good game whoever wins.

  • Ancelotti has to win if he wants to remain in Paris for a long time

  • This should be a great game, got the most riding on it as well

  • over2.5 a good bet,ibra at least 2.

  • 2-0 IS BETTER :)
