Tip PSG - Leipzig
This is a vital game for both clubs in Group H of the Champions League. PSG reached the final last season but if they don't win at home to RB Leipzig, they might end up in the Europa League. In fact, if Istanbul Basaksehir get another win against Manchester United, PSG's European season might be over before Christmas. They began this group with a 2-1 home loss to Manchester United, before two second half goals got the French champions a win in Istanbul. Fixture three was another disappointing one for PSG as they lost away in Leipzig, despite taking a sixth minute lead. Three points from three games and after this match, they go to Old Trafford before a final game at home to Basaksehir. This isn't quite a must-win match for PSG but a loss would put massive pressure on them. Their most recent game saw them give away a 2-0 lead at Monaco. Four of their last five home games in all competitions have been won, with 13 goals scored in the last three. In the Champions League, PSG have only lost two of the last nine, both to Manchester United.
RB Leipzig made a good start to this group with a 2-0 home win over Istanbul Basaksehir. It all went wrong for them away at Manchester United though with a 5-0 defeat. Their strong home form saw them beat PSG 2-1 putting them in second place in the group. They trail Manchester United by three points but lead PSG by the same amount Leipzig drew away at Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday, recovering from going behind. That result continued their poor away form with just one win in their five matches played this season. The last three have produced two losses and a draw, all very encouraging for PSG. Go for the French side to get a vital win here.
Key points PSG - Leipzig
Only Manchester United have been able to beat PSG in their last nine home Champions League games.
PSG have scored 13 goals in their last three home matches.
Leipzig have just one win from their five away matches this season.
Conclusion PSG - Leipzig
PSG dare not lose this game or their Champions League hopes will be in tatters with them six points behind the top two. They had another mishap at Monaco on Friday and cant repeat that at home to Leipzig. PSG lost away to the German side but Leipzig aren't so strong on the road, having already lost 5-0 at Old Trafford. They failed to win away at the weekend as their poor form on the road continues. It might be a nervy night but PSG can get a vital win here.
