  • PSG have won 8/8 Ligue 1 games this season.

Betting Tip: Draw

Two well backed titans of recent European football clash at the Parc Des Princes on Tuesday night in what could end up being a decider for top spot in group A. Manchester City come into this one on the back of an excellent win over Chelsea on Saturday, a game they were deserving victors in against a title rival. Should they recreate such an effort in the French capital midweek then they’ll have a great chance of coming back to Manchester with 3 points in the bag.

For all the stardust the hosts will have in forward areas they are coming up against a defence which has been consistently solid for well over a year now, I don’t think you can say that about PSG’s defence and midfield, I’d say only, Gigi Donarumma, Achraf Hakimi and Marquinhos could stake their claim as one of the elite in these positions behind the front three.

It’s no surprise that City are slight favourites here but I do wonder whether Pep Guardiola will be satisfied with a draw given Les Parisiens failed to win in Brugge on matchday 1. It could be a more risk-averse approach and I’m not expecting an avalanche of goals despite the quality of forwards on show.

In the 1X2 market I do think the draw therefore represents a touch of value in what looks a difficult betting heat.
