Basaksehir FK is welcoming Paris Saint-Germain to Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadium in round 2 in the UEFA Champions League.
Basaksehir is in terrible form despite winning their last game in the Turkish Super Lig, but they have been playing against a weak team. In their first Champions League game against Leipzig on the road, last week, Basaksehir has had 52% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 80% of the correct passes. Basaksehir has conceded 2 goals in the first 20 minutes of the game, and they ended up losing this game 2-0. There are no goalscorers for Basaksehir in the Champions League right now, while Caicara, Sengezer, Chadli, and Ucar are all injured, and they will not be playing in this game. Basaksehir doesn’t stand a chance in this group with Leipzig, Manchester United, and PSG, and I think they will be happy if they win a few points, although, I’m not sure if that can happen. Basaksehir has won the Turkish Super Lig last season, and that is what they need to focus on this season as well. Basaksehir is already 9 points from the top, and if they even want to have a chance defending their title, they need to start playing better soccer on both ends.
PSG is dominating Ligue 1 with 6 wins in a row during which PSG scored 20 goals while conceding only 1 goal. In their last Ligue 1 match, PSG was hosting Dijon, and they have won this match 4-0. In their Champions League game against Manchester United on the road, PSG has had 61% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 11 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 86% of the correct passes. PSG was dominating the possession in this game, but they still ended up losing this match 1-2. The only goal score for PSG was an own goal scored by Anthony Martial. Bernat, Verratti, Icardi, Paredes, Gueye, Letellier, and Draxler are all injured, and they will miss this game for PSG. There is still a lot of firepowers left in PSG even with all these injuries, and their offense is scoring a lot of goals, and more importantly, Kean has started scoring goals as well. PSG is playing well, but their Champions League group is hard, and losing their first game in the Champions League didn’t help their chances to end in one of the top two spots. PSG tends to get sloppy on the defensive end, but they can still outscore any team out there.
Basaksehir and PSG have never played against each other, and Basaksehir is in terrible form. PSG is the better team, and they are coming in this game as a favorite. I think PSG will easily win this game, and I see them scoring at least 3 goals while doing so.
