PSG vs Arsenal by Shibby
It's the return of the Champions League tomorrow and I for one can't wait with some of the first round games! This one in particular should be a great game. The game will be played at Parc des Princes, Paris. The game will kick off at 19:45 (UK time).
The hosts for me head into the game under a little bit of pressure, their start to the season has not been great at all. They find themselves currently sat in 7th in the league. They've managed to just 7 points from 4 games! Not a bad start, however, for a team like PSG in the French league this isn't amazing.
They have already lost one game this season away at Monaco 3-1. I've seen them a couple of times this season and I'll be honest, I haven't been impressed! Since they lost Blanc and Zlatan I think the club have gone downhill! Don't get me wrong, I do like Emery, however, I don't think he has the capabilities of Blanc.
Their last game was a very harsh ending, they lead St Etienne 1-0 after a Moura penalty, however, a late late goal from Beric secured a point for St Etienne! This would have no doubt hurt PSG in the way it ended! I know they saved a couple of players for this game vs Arsenal, however, they still had a strong squad out.
The visitors for the game are Arsenal, they have started the season slowly too, however, they find themselves in 6th in the league. Like PSG, Arsenal have won 2 games, drawn 1 and lost 1. The game they lost was the opening game of the season to a strong Liverpool side. They score could have been a lot worse, however, a late Arsenal onslaught pulled it back to 4-3.
Since that defeat Arsenal have gone from strength to strength, a draw vs Leicester City 0-0 followed by 2 straight victories vs Watford and Southampton. I know their last game was a late goal to secure 3 points, however, I think overall they deserved the win! Santi Carzola secured the win. This gave Arsenal their 2nd straight win and will have no doubt injected confidence!
I expect Arsenal to really push PSG for a victory tomorrow as they will know the 3 points at this early stage could be huge! However, I also expect PSG to up their game a little! However, looking at the odds I think that Arsenal +0.5 AH offers huge value!
The current price is 2.00 with Bet365, this will secure you a win even if Arsenal draw. I can't see Arsenal losing the game, therefore, I'll be backing Arsenal +0.5 AH. Good luck all!
