The 2023/24 Champions League campaign is set to resume with Matchday 3 this week. The game most fans are looking forward to is the clash between PSG and AC Milan in Group F, this season’s group of death. The match at Parc des Princes will kick off at 9 local time on Wednesday, October 25.

Despite the expectations before the season, neither team has been particularly good in the Champions League so far. In our PSG vs AC Milan tips, we will take into account the two sides' recent form and what this match means for their chances to reach the knockout stage.

Both teams to score? Yes

To start off our PSG vs AC Milan tips, we believe that both sides will end up on the scoreline. Bet365 offers 1.70 odds on both teams scoring at Parc des Princes.

After losing 4-1 to Newcastle United in the previous round, the Parisians will need to redeem themselves in front of their fans. A goal is the least that Luis Enrique's team can do. Although AC Milan are yet to concede a single goal in the tournament, the home side has the means – with an incredible frontline with Kylian Mbappe, Ousmane Dembele and Randal Kolo Muani – to break down their defence.

Meanwhile, the Italians haven’t scored a goal either, with their previous two matches being goalless draws. However, Stefano Pioli’s men accumulated enough xG (expected goals) points to score at least twice, it was by poor chance that none of those shots went in. Scoring past their former goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma should serve as extra motivation.

Over 2.5 goals

Similarly, we expect a high-scoring game in Paris with at least three goals. The odds on over 2.5 goals on Bet365 stand at 1.70.

The issue is – for both teams – that a bad result on Wednesday may put an end to their round of 16 aspirations. Newcastle United are currently the league-leaders with four points and the English team will play the next two games against last-placed Borussia Dortmund. Unless the Bundesliga side manages to somehow beat Newcastle, this leaves PSG and Milan fighting for the second spot in the league.

That is why we expect an attacking approach on both sides. Although the Parisians will most likely control the ball for the majority of the game, the visitors still have the likes of Rafael Leao, Christian Pulisic and Theo Hernandez to hurt them on the counter.

Kylian Mbappe to score anytime

If there is one player the fans can count on to rise up to the occasion, it is Kylian Mbappe. With the departures of Lionel Messi and Neymar over the summer, nobody questions anymore who is the big star of Paris. Now it is Mbappe that everyone is looking to pass the ball to, and he has been up to the task.

The Frenchman has scored nine goals in the 10 matches he has played across all competitions in 2023/24. He is also coming after a successful spell with France during the international break where he scored a brace against the Netherlands and added one more goal against Scotland.

So, there are good chances that Kylian Mbappe will score past AC Milan as well, with Bet365 offering 2.00 odds on it happening.
