The Line: Napoli +600/ Draw +425 / PSG -225 -- Over/Under: 2.5
PSG will host Napoli at the Parc des Princes in Paris for a match in the UEFA Champions League.
Napoli enter this match having won their last 3 games which includes a victory over Liverpool. This team is exceptionally strong defensively with the likes of Kalidou Koulibaly and Raul Albiol leading the team to 5 clean sheets in their last 7 matches. The midfield and attack have also been playing well with the likes of Allan and Marek Hamsik creating many goals for the exceptional Dries Mertens and Lorenzo Insigne. This team has averaged over 2 goals a game in recent weeks with Insigne scoring 2 goals in his last 3 games.
Similarly, PSG have also been in exceptional form as they have won all 10 of their domestic games. The attacking combination of Neymar, Edinson Cavani, and Kylian Mbappe has amazed all season as the team is averaging almost 4 goals scored per game. PSG have scored 16 goals in their last 3 games and judging by the form of the players, it will be very hard for anyone to stop them scoring. This match will test PSG’s strikers as Napoli have an exceptionally strong defense but considering the class of Neymar and Mbappe, I am siding with the Parisians to get goals.
This match will be decided by how well Napoli defend. If the Italian team can limit PSG to 2 goals then they have a chance but considering this match is at the Parc des Princes, I am not liking the chances for Napoli. The easiest pick for this match in the over 2.5 goals which is almost guaranteed to win considering the attacking strength on both sides. As far as a winner is concerned, I am picking PSG to win since I see them being too strong at home.
