PSG vs Newcastle United prediction, odds, betting tips and best bets for Champions League match

It’s make or break time in Champions League Group F as Paris Saint-Germain look to get their revenge on Newcastle United in Paris on Tuesday.

The French giants were well and truly humbled by Eddie Howe’s Magpies when the pair met in the return fixture in early October at St James’ Park. On that occasion, the Premier League side ran out comfortable 4-1 winners, as Kylian Mbappe and company were sent packing from the north east of England in embarrassing fashion.

It’s likely to be a very different matchup this time around, though, as PSG have won all seven of their Ligue 1 matches since that defeat, each one of those witnessing them score three or more goals in the process.

There’s also the fact that Newcastle arrive here with a lengthy list of injuries that they’re still dealing with, and even though they thumped Chelsea 4-1 at the weekend in league action, this match will signify one of their most difficult propositions in recent club history.

PSG vs Newcastle best bet

Even though Newcastle hit Chelsea for foul goals at the weekend and put the same amount past PSG in the return fixture, we’re expecting them to struggle a little bit more here.

Ever since their loss at St James’ Park, the French champions have looked a completely different side, winning seven of their past eight matches with the only blemish coming in a 2-1 defeat away to AC Milan in this competition.

Those eight outings have seen them keep clean sheets in four, and as Newcastle continue to struggle with injuries, they could experience some fatigue here given the quick turnaround from Saturday’s match plus the travel to Paris.

PSG vs Newcastle flier bet

  • Pick: Vitinha to score anytime
  • Odds: +500 (DraftKings)

When looking at this match from a goalscoring-odds point of view, it’s no surprise to see Kylian Mbappe put in front given his stunning form of late. That said, at odds of -150 to score anytime, backing him here isn’t really worth it.

Because of that, we’re instead going to plump for Vitinha to score anytime for PSG from midfield at +500 with DraftKings.

Since arriving for a sizeable fee from Porto in July 2022, the Portuguese midfielder has hardly set the world on fire, but his recent form points to a player who is oozing in confidence of late.

Across his past six league outings, he’s netted three goals, including one on Friday evening against Monaco. That leaves him well placed both to start and potentially score here and at +500 with DraftKings, backing this selection could offer some great value.
