What Trueform says for PSG vs Napoli
PSG and Napoli both secured impressive Champions League wins on Matchday 2 but preference is for the French aristocrats when they meet in Paris.
The hosts scored 15 goals in a trio of wins during last season’s pool stage and have already hit Red Star Belgrade for six at Parc des Princes this term.
That makes 19/20 for Thomas Tuchel’s side to prevail and over 2.5 goals in the game a rock-solid PSG vs Napoli prediction.
A Look At Paris Saint-Germain’s Betting Odds
PSG showed glimpses of their true potential in a 3-2 loss at Liverpool in the first round of Group C fixtures, but they were second best for much of that match on Merseyside.
However, the stars came out to shine for a 6-1 romp against Red Star in Paris, with Neymar’s hat-trick including a couple of superb free-kicks.
Edinson Cavani, Angel Di Maria and Kylian Mbappe also netted in a stunning display of attacking prowess which again raised questions over why this team has not gone closer to conquering Europe in recent years.
Defender Presnel Kimpembe revealed: “Under Tuchel, we’ve changed a few things tactically. We’re looking to recover possession higher up the pitch and to put our opponents under pressure more quickly.”
Tuchel added: “I think we won 71 per cent of our duels. That’s a lot of hard work and I’m very satisfied about that.”
Such intensity may prove too much for a talented but sometimes defensively naive Napoli outfit to cope with.
A Look At Napoli’s Betting Odds
Napoli improved on a goalless draw against Red Star in Belgrade when beating Liverpool 1-0 at Stadio San Paolo.
The Serie A side had to wait until the closing stages to snatch victory through Lorenzo Insigne, but it was a deserved success.
Dries Mertens had earlier hit the bar in a match which Napoli pretty much dominated.
However, they still have to show they can reproduce such form on the road, having lost all three away games when finishing third behind Manchester City and Shakhtar Donetsk last term.
Carlo Ancelotti has the experience to cure that travel sickness eventually, but there have already been two damaging defeats at Sampdoria and Juventus on the domestic front this term, with three goals conceded each time.
For all their neat football going forward, we still prefer 8/5 for a home win and both teams to score to finish off our PSG vs Napoli betting tips.
