Team News

Newcastle
PSG
  • Newcastle will have to do without the likes of Sven Botman, Harvey Barnes and Joe Willock for their first home Champions League fixture.
  • Joelinton and Callum Wilson will need to be assessed before playing any part in this one.
  • Luis Enrique will remain without Nuno Mendes, Sergio Rico and Marco Asensio here, while Presnel Kimpembe has returned to training, but won't yet be ready to be included.
  • Keylor Navas is suffering with a back issue and will be sidelined for a number of weeks.

Prediction

  • Newcastle made it five consecutive clean sheets when they saw off Burnley at St James' Park on Saturday afternoon.
  • The Magpies were held to a goalless draw at San Siro last time out in this competition and will be hoping to go one further and pick up their first win of the campaign here.
  • The visitors have also strung together a number of clean sheets, and haven't conceded in three matches. They were, however, held to a disappointing 0-0 draw against Clermont Foot at the weekend.
  • Luis Enrique's side were victorious over Borussia Dortmund in their group opener, but could struggle here.

  • Obviously i will get losers :)

  • Luis Enrique masterclass. When he was announced as the new PSG coach I said that he won't even win League 1. Well, now I'm not sure if he'd survive until the end of the season.

  • seems like this wont be psgs year either - surprise surprise. the game illustrated everything wrong with psg, tactically above all. midfield - nonexistent. not very useful offensively aka dominating, creating chances, not very useful defensively aka tracking opponents, covering for the defenders... newcastle counterattacks cut through so easily as a result. i wonder which enrique tactic is making the midfield so weak cuz the shape itself is reasonable. donnarumma - prone to mistakes as always. spaces too big between defenders (3rd goal), how do u let newcastle stretch u that much? attackers - very fast, made some nice combinations as we expect of psg / any superior team but they are more like pace merchants than having great technique. with no space to run into, against the low block, their biggest strengths were nullified (running). so, okay, i can accept an off-day, other teams will play more open vs psg which may help em. but the defense? conceding 4 like that? no chance they win

  • Never mind, Lens beat Arsenal so PL trash right?

  • LOL

  • 0-0

  • I have had a large bet on PSG DNB @ now 2.00 Odds

  • @Marbella "I tried to warn people"

  • Newcastle United are very good defensive and offensive but they are missing key players.. this is gonna be hard for them ��

  • @DenisTK Don't think so, PSG is in pathetic form

  • Newcastle were lucky to earn a point against AC Milan. They don’t look like a team ready for UCL football. X2 & Over 1.5 @1.75

  • Never thought I'd see the day when Newcastle would be deserved favorites heading into match against PSG. How times have changed

  • PSG usually step up a gear when it comes to the Champions League.Mbappe,Muani and Dembélé will cause a lot of problems.

  • Hard to call tbh. PSG might not be on form, but based on Newcastle's opening game in the competition, the hosts are still far from European top football. Not to mention that PSG did put in a rather convincing performance against Dortmund as well. X2 seems reasonable.

  • PSG DNB @ 1.95 Odds

  • should be goals indeed. 1x2 risky.

  • 2-2

  • 3-2 PSG
