Let's assess the form of both opponents heading into this encounter and choose the most reliable PSG vs Newcastle United tips.
The French club is in excellent form, with only one defeat in the last eight games, winning all the others. Interestingly, PSG's most recent loss occurred in the UEFA Champions League, where they were defeated 1-2 by AC Milan. In Ligue 1, PSG is thriving with a six-game winning streak, scoring at least three goals in each of these matches. Over the weekend, the reigning champions comfortably dealt with one of their closest pursuers, Monaco (5-2). Therefore, there's no doubt about the good form of PSG's attacking line.
Newcastle United Preview
The Magpies entered the international break on a sour note, first losing to Borussia Dortmund at home in the UEFA Champions League (0-2), followed by a similar scoreline defeat to Bournemouth in the Premier League. However, the brief respite seems to have benefited Newcastle, as they convincingly defeated Chelsea over the weekend (4-1). This victory should boost the confidence of the English club's players.
However, in away matches in this UEFA Champions League campaign, Newcastle has struggled not only to secure a victory but even to score goals. They drew with Milan (0-0) and then lost to Dortmund (0-2). Facing PSG in the French capital will undoubtedly be a challenging task.
Betting Tips PSG vs Newcastle United
In the first-leg match in Newcastle upon Tyne, Newcastle United unexpectedly defeated PSG 4-1. This result will undoubtedly influence the dynamics of the upcoming clash. It would be naive to assume that the pride of PSG, led by Kylian Mbappe, was not affected on that evening.
Considering the excellent form of PSG's players and their desire to avenge the crushing defeat in England, we believe that Newcastle United has limited chances of achieving a positive result in France. As our PSG vs Newcastle United prediction, we suggest considering the option where the hosts secure a convincing victory with an advantage of at least two goals. Our tip for this game is PSG -1.5 at odds of 2.54.
