Napoli will host PSG in the next match in the UEFA Champions League.
Napoli enters this match following a dominating win over the weekend where the team beat Empoli 5-1 at home. It was an exceptional performance by Dries Mertens who scored 3 goals to ensure Napoli remain equal on points with Inter Milan. This is a very important game for Napoli since a loss will spell trouble as it will mean that they will then have to beat Liverpool at Anfield if they wish to qualify. This game will be dictated by how well Napoli defend as they will need to stop the likes of Neymar and Mbappe from scoring. If Napoli can defend well, they will be confident the likes of Mertens and Insigne will provide enough goals to get the Italian side a victory.

This is also a must-win match for PSG as the French side are currently third in the group and a loss will see Napoli move 4 points ahead with only 2 games remaining. PSG have maintained their perfect record in Ligue 1 as they won their 12th successive league match. Mbappe and Neymar continued their supreme form as both players scored over the weekend in a 2-1 win against Lille. This match will test the PSG forwards are Napoli have defended well this season. With the pressure on the Parisians, the star players for PSG will need to play well to ensure the team doesn’t have a shock group stage elimination.
In the previous match between PSG and Napoli, the game ended as a 2-2 draw. That match was played in Paris and it was a very even contest with Di Maria scoring in injury time to ensure PSG managed to get a point.
This should be a close match as both teams are filled with quality players. The pressure will be huge on both sides and with that in mind, I am going to pick PSG to win. PSG have more big-name players and I see the likes of Neymar performing when the team is in desperate need. I am picking a close PSG victory.
