Liverpool vs PSG: Predictions, Odds and Betting Tips
Tuesday, September 18th, 2018, 15:00
Last year’s beaten finalists Liverpool start their Champions League campaign against French contenders Paris Saint-Germain.
Arguably the most eagerly anticipated Champions League group fixture of week one sees five-time European champions Liverpool host the ultra-wealthy French champions Paris Saint-Germain.
It will be a magnitude of sound as the Liverpool faithful blare out ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ in what promises to be an unforgettable night of European football with no shortage of superstars on the pitch.
Liverpool will be looking to go one step further than last season after ending runners-up to Real Madrid.
The Reds have put their final misery behind them and face PSG safe in the knowledge that they have not lost a UEFA home game in their last 16 Anfield outings.
That is likely to continue as Liverpool have started the season brightly.
As have PSG, but with three draws from three in their last visits to England, we are predicting a 2-2 draw to keep both sides in control of their group destiny.
Mohammed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Neymar, Kylian Mbappe are just four names who are likely to be adorning the Anfield turf making both teams to score an inevitability.
Coupled with PSG’s penchant for the draw in England and Liverpool’s ability at not losing at home, the draw is also an inevitability.
If like in the above bet you agree that goals are coming but remain unsure about the result, then take 11/10 on their being over 3 goals in the game.
Last season PSG scored a whopping 108 goals in the league whilst Liverpool managed 84, and the attacking talent on show is reason enough to make this one of your bets.

Head to Head
Despite the two sides’ history in Europe, there is little head to head data to go on.
However, that is not to say there is nothing as the pair have met in European competition before during the 1996-97 UEFA Cup Winners Cup.
The duo met in the semi-final with PSG taking a 3-0 first leg home advantage back to Anfield with them.
The Reds won the home tie 2-0 but it was not enough as PSG went through 3-2 on aggregate only to lose to Barcelona in the final.
- Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 16 home UEFA games winning eleven and drawing five.
- PSG have drawn their last three Champions League game on English soil.
- PSG star Neymar sparked outrage at the beginning of September by claiming opponents Liverpool won’t finish in the Premier League’s top four this season.
- This is the sides first ever meeting in the Champions League.
- Liverpool has won Europe’s top tier competition five times whereas PSG are yet to lift Europe’s top domestic trophy.
