|PSG vs AC Milan Betting Tips|
For the mighty PSG, the recent Champions League clash against Newcastle United left a bitter taste. Conceding four goals in a group game for the first time in over two decades, PSG was humbled at St James’ Park. A 4-1 defeat exposed the vulnerabilities of the French champions, leading to post-match scrutiny of both players and coach Luis Enrique. The loss was a reminder that possessing 73% average possession, as they did in that game, doesn’t always translate to positive results. Nevertheless, PSG remain a formidable force at Parc des Princes, having lost just one of 34 group games in their Champions League history.
AC Milan, historically PSG’s bogey team in Europe, also face their share of challenges. The Rossoneri have struggled to find the back of the net, enduring a four-match goal drought in the Champions League. Their defensive solidity, though, has remained intact. Stefano Pioli’s men have not conceded in their last four group-stage matches, making them a tough nut to crack. However, Milan must overcome PSG’s historical dominance and their own scoring struggles to emerge victorious.
PSG have shown character in domestic competitions, clinching back-to-back wins after the Newcastle setback. Kylian Mbappe’s influence in the attack is undeniable, with a track record of involvement in numerous Champions League group-stage goals. PSG’s lineup for this clash includes returning quartet Ousmane Dembele, Achraf Hakimi, Layvin Kurzawa, and Randal Kolo Muani. However, Presnel Kimpembe and Nuno Mendes are sidelined due to injuries, with Marco Asensio’s participation in doubt.
AC Milan’s attack, featuring Rafael Leao, Olivier Giroud, and Christian Pulisic, is expected to remain unchanged despite recent goal-scoring woes. Goalkeeper Mike Maignan’s return bolsters their defensive stability. Milan will be counting on their resilient defence to withstand PSG’s attacking prowess.
Given Milan’s defensive solidity and PSG’s desire to atone for their recent loss, we anticipate a closely contested match. Both teams possess the quality to secure a win, but our prediction leans towards a 1-1 draw. The resilience of Milan’s defence combined with PSG’s attacking power may limit either side from securing a decisive victory.
Prediction: PSG 1-1 AC Milan
