The main matchup in Group F sees a desperate Newcastle travel to PSG in a fight for survival. The Magpies sit bottom of the group, but ironically only three points away from first place. Although they’ve been inconsistent in the league, Newcastle sit seven points behind leaders Arsenal, while PSG top Ligue 1. This game will determine the outcome of Newcastle’s European season. If the Magpies lose, they could find it almost impossible to qualify for the Europa League. Only a win can keep them in contention, so Howe’s side will have to go at from the get go. Newcastle have failed to score a goal away from home, while PSG shut out Milan and Dortmund in 3-0 and 2-0 wins. This will be a very tough match for Newcastle, who is facing the group’s best team away from home.

PSG are missing Zaire Emery and Marquinhos, replaced by Mukiele and Ruiz. Newcastle travel to France without Tonali (suspended), Wilson, Burn, Barnes, Murphy, Anderson and Botman. If PSG get a result, that would put them in a good position for qualification. In that case, they would be ahead of Milan regardless, although they are yet to face Dortmund in Germany. We see PSG as heavy favourites here, not least due to Newcastle’s insane injury crisis. PSG have been playing very well at home, and will look to avenge their 4-1 defeat at St. James’s Park. Newcastle’s need for a result will inevitably mean that they will force the issue, which is when PSG will hot them with the pace of Mbappe and Dembele. We suggest and Over 2.5 in this match, with Mbappe as Anytime Goalscorer. Who will prevail in this fight for survival?

PSG to Win – 1.69

Draw – 4.20
