PSG vs Arsenal 13th September 2016: Champions League Preview and Predictions

The UEFA Champions League is back and the first match day of this tournament has a few great games. The game in interest at the moment is set in Paris as PSG host Arsenal in what should be a great match.

Arsenal are a team that need titles and although they have picked a tough group, for a team like Arsenal, they should still feel as if though they should top it. This team has tons of creativity and pace that should work well with their new additions like Lucas Perez in an attempt to get their season off to a great start. PSG will be a tough task but the French champions are not the team they once were so it is very likely that the Gunners can get an away win here.

On the other side of the coin, PSG need to adapt to life without Zlatan Ibrahamovic. This side still has plenty of talent but they are now missing the leader they once had so it will be important for the likes of Angel De Maria and Thiago Silva to show some fight. PSG should be able to compete with any team in the world but it will be tough for them against Arsenal as they are still rebuilding so I am going to be surprised if they can win this game.

I am going to pick an Arsenal win here and that is one of the best bets I have seen since we are getting an amazing price on the Gunners. PSG might have the home ground advantage but they have been playing very poorly as of late so it is pretty simple to take this bet with the odds we are getting. I think the likes of Lucas Perez and Alexis Sanchez will cause the PSG backline problems and the Arsenal backline might not even be tested since PSG seem to be a mess going forward.
