Paris Saint-Germain will be hoping to make home advantage count when they welcome Napoli to the Parc des Princes for Wednesday’s Champions League clash.
Les Parisiens have won 15 and lost none of their last 19 group stage matches in front of their own fans, coming out on top in each of the last four in a row.
Having won 11 of their 12 matches in all competitions so far this campaign, they are 4/9 (1.44) favourites with 888Sport to leapfrog their opponents with another victory here.
However, Carlo Ancelotti’s men have won their last four meetings against French opposition, and can be backed at 5/1 (6.00) to pull of a major victory in this one.
The sides played out a 0-0 Europa League draw in their only previous encounter at this ground back in 1992, and you can get odds of 4/1 (5.00) on them cancelling each other out once again.
Marco Verratti and Angel Di Maria are both expected to be fit despite both coming off injured during Saturday’s 5-0 win over Amiens, while Thiago Silva should also start after sitting that game out with a muscle strain.
Lorenzo Insigne will face a late fitness test for the visitors, having sat out Saturday’s win over Udinese due to muscle fatigue.
For a team renowned for entertaining football, it is somewhat surprising that the Partenopei’s first two games in this season’s competition have produced a total of just one goal.
However, it is hard to see that continuing in the French capital, where the hosts have averaged 3.6 goals per game over the last three Champions League seasons.
Indeed, Thomas Tuchel’s team are on a record streak of finding the net in 18 consecutive European games, although have also gone six matches without a clean sheet.
All in all, odds of 6/5 (2.20) look safe on over 3.5 goals being scored for PSG’s 13th Champions League match in 15, as well as Napoli’s third away game in four.
