 The fate of PSG and Liverpool’s UEFA Champions League campaigns is on the line when the two heavyweights meet at Parc des Princes in Paris, Thursday 7 a.m. AEST. Incredibly, these teams have a combined 75 points from a possible 81 in their respective leagues (PSG with 14 wins from 14, Liverpool with 10 wins and 3 draws from 13). Yet both are at risk of missing the Champions League knockout stage, with the Group C table showing Napoli (6 points), Liverpool (6), PSG (5), Red Star Belgrade (4).

Home Side Has Advantage in PSG-Liverpool Matches

Liverpool are the underdog in this match, paying as much as 3.10 at Neds. PSG are quoted at as high as 2.20 at bet365 going into this game. Liverpool won the reverse fixture 3-2 thanks to Roberto Firmino’s injury-time winner, but history suggests that the home side should have the edge.

The home team has won all three meetings between these teams, with PSG winning their only home match against the Reds, a 3-0 victory in the 1996-97 Cup Winners’ Cup semi-final. PSG have won 4 points from a possible 6 at home in the Champs League this season, drawing 2-2 with Napoli and thrashing Red Star 6-1. PSG are unbeaten in their last 20 home group stage games in the Champions League (15 wins and 5 draws), with their last loss coming to CSKA Moscow in December 2004. Liverpool have dropped both their away games, 1-0 to Napoli and 2-0 to Red Star, but they’ve never lost all three away group games in the Champions League.

Neymar, Mbappé Expected to Pass Fitness Tests

 Liverpool would have fancied their chances when PSG stars Neymar and Kylian Mbappé picked up injuries during international friendlies for Brazil and France these past couple of weeks. Neither featured in PSG’s Ligue 1 win over Toulouse on the weekend, but manager Tom Tuchel has indicated he expects both to get up for the final training session ahead of the Liverpool match. Madbookie’s odds of 2.55 for PSG to score in both halves looks particularly attractive, given PSG have scored 11 goals from 4 Champions League matches this season, with Neymar and Mbappé contributing 5 of those.

The Reds have their own injury worries, with English centre back Joe Gomez missing on their Premier League victory over Watford over the weekend after suffering a knock in training. But Jurgen Klopp has said Gomez will recover in time to play in a defence that has conceded just 5 goals in 13 EPL games but also 5 goals in 4 Champions League games this season. Liverpool are paying 5.10 for an unlikely clean sheet at Palmerbet. If they win, it’s likely they’ll do so 2-1 or 3-2, paying 12.00 and 23.00 at Palmerbet.
