Paris Saint-Germain is hosting Basaksehir FK at Parc des Princes in round 6 in the UEFA Champions League.

After losing to Monaco a few weeks ago, PSG hasn’t lost any of their last 4 games, while winning 3 of those 4 games. PSG is at the top of the table in Ligue 1, but they can still end up in the Europa League if they lose in the Champions League. PSG is in second place at the moment, but they need a win here to advance to the next stage. In their last Champions League game, PSG was playing against United on the road, and they have had 56% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, 6 big chances created, and 88% of the correct passes. PSG was the better team in this game, and they have deservedly won 1-3. Neymar is the leading goalscorer for PSG with 3 goals, while Kean added 2 goals. Mbappe has added 2 assists. Bernat, Kehrer, Draxler, and Sarabia are all injured for PSG. With a win in Ligue 1 last weekend, PSG has stayed on a winning track, and that will certainly help them in this crucial game in the Champions League.

Basaksehir is not doing well, and they haven’t won any of their last 5 games. Basaksehir is the weakest team in this group, and they are in the last place with only 3 points, and without a chance to advance to the next stage or the Europa League. Basaksehir was playing against Yeni Malatyaspor in the Turkish Super Lig, and that game ended in a 1-1 draw. Basaksehir is in 9th place with 15 points, and it doesn’t look like they will be close to the top this season. In their last Champions League game, Basaksehir was playing against Leipzig at home, and they have had 45% of ball possession in that game, 4 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 75% of the correct passes. Basaksehir was losing 1-3 in this game, but they were able to come back in the 85th minute. In the 92nd minute, Basaksehir has conceded another goal, and they ended up losing this game 3-4. Kahveci is the leading goalscorer for Basaksehir with 3 goals. Caicara, Visca, Epureanu, and Aleksic are all injured, and they will miss this game. Basaksehir can now focus on the Turkish Super Lig, but I don’t think we will see them anywhere near the top this season.

PSG has beaten Basaksehir on the road earlier this season and considering they desperately need a win here, I think PSG will get another win. PSG is coming into this game as a huge favorite, and I need to find the right market for a better price, but it shouldn’t be too hard.
