Paris Saint Germain vs RasenBallsport Leipzig Betting Tips & Predictions
For some reason, the bookies think Paris Saint-Germain are overwhelming favourites to beat RB Leipzig at the Parc des Princes on 24 November despite the fact that they have won one and lost two of their three Champions League matches played so far.
While PSG remain the dominant force on a domestic front, they’ve not had things their own way since reaching last season’s European Cup final, with a 2-0 win away to İstanbul Başakşehir being sandwiched by defeats against Manchester United and RB Leipzig.
PSG Too Short in the Betting For Leipzig Clash
It means that Thomas Tuchel’s side are in a sticky situation at the halfway stage of the group phase and there’s a fair amount of pressure on the French champions to get the job done against a side that beat them in Germany before the international break.
Our prediction is that this will be a cagey affair considering that a draw for Leipzig would keep them three points clear of PSG ahead of clashes against Istanbul and United, with Julian Nagelsmann’s side having reached the semi-final stage of the Champions League last season.
Yes, PSG are capable of blowing lesser sides away although we’re not sure they should be around the 1.57 mark on the Full-Time Result betting market and there’s an opportunity to get with the visitors on the Asian Handicap line.
Leipzig on the Asian Handicap Our Champions League Tip
We’re going to side with the visitors enjoying a +1.5 goal start in Paris considering that they can afford to lose the game by a single goal and we would still win our bet. While Leipzig suffered a real blip when losing 5-0 at Old Trafford, that was uncharacteristic considering the team have only shipped four goals in seven Bundesliga games this term.
The visitors have only lost one game domestically this season and that was a slender 1-0 reverse against Borussia Monchengladbach, so we’re going to side with them for this game.
Leipzig asian handicap +1.5 @ 1.55 (11/20) with bet365
