The Parisians have a chance to get revenge at home

When PSG visited St James' Park on matchday 2 of the 2023-24 UEFA Champions League group stage games, it ended as a night to forget. Eddie Howe's Newcastle blew apart any tactical plans Luis Enrique travelled with for PSG. A 4-1 defeat to The Magpies definitely sets a euphoric atmosphere at the French capital-based Parc des Princes stadium for this reverse fixture.

Group F has proved to be very competitive. Even after 4 matchdays, every team has a possible chance to make it to the next rounds of the UCL.

Paris Saint-Germain seemingly are all set at home after a 5-2 emphatic win over AS Monaco in Ligue 1 last game. They will be looking to use the home advantage to add 3 points to the UCL table. Visitors Newcastle United will also be coming on with a high of beating Chelsea 4-1. Post matchday 6 the names of the two sides heading for the next two-legged knockout rounds will be announced. This match definitely will prove to be an important game to look back at after the dust of matchday 6 settles.

Kick-Off:

Tuesday, 28 November 2023 at 8:00 PM UK

Location: Parc des Princes

Form

PSG (in all competitions): W-W-L-W-W

Newcastle (in all competitions): W-L-L-W-W

Players to Watch

Kylian Mbappe (PSG)

It was very hard to see a player that single-handedly terrified the entire Argentina nation in the 2022 FIFA World Cup finals looking distraught due to the 4-1 scoreline at St James' Park. Kylian Mbappe has a chance along with his side to get even with the Magpies side. Last game for PSG, Kylian Mbappe scored a penalty while also assisting Vitinha against AS Monaco.

Anthony Gordon (Newcastle)

In the 4-1 home win over Chelsea, Anthony Gordon was involved in 2 goals. Firstly his cross perfectly helped set up captain Jamaal Lascelles to head in a goal and give Newcastle a 2-1 lead. Later Gordon scored a goal himself that proved to be the cherry on top of already a good 3-1 scoreline. Anthony Gordon will be eager to once again be an influential player against PSG.

Match Facts

  • PSG's 5-2 win over AS Monaco has extended their unbeaten home game run to 6 games
  • It will be troubling for Newcastle United to enter this tie knowing they failed to score even once in the last 2 away games. Newcastle lost both of those 2-0
  • In their only ever face-off, Newcastle triumphed 4-1 over PSG on 5 October

Injury & Team News

PSG enters this game in a bit of a backup goalkeeper crisis. Both Sergio Rico and Keylor Navas won't be available to be on the bench. Hamstring injuries will keep the defensive prowess of both Nuno Mendes and Marquinhos sidelined. Teenager Warren Zaire-Emery is out with an injury on the ankle. The good news is that Presnel Kimpembe is back and training with the boys.

Newcastle United remains without Sandro Tonali who is serving a ban for betting-related offences. The injury list is lengthy for this trip. Players like Matt Targett, Harvey Barnes, Elliot Anderson, Daniel Burn, Jacob Murphy and Sven Botman are all unavailable. Even forward Callum Wilson won't get a shot at scoring after a hamstring injury sidelines him until the end of the year. Only Sean Longstaff has a chance of making it back in time from an ankle injury.

Match Prediction for PSG vs Newcastle

At St James' Park, it surely was a different story. And at Parc des Princes, hopefully, it will be a story for the home fans to celebrate. Even though Newcastle have drowned a bit in an injury crisis, Eddie Howe's men won't let PSG have an easy win. Maybe the 4-1 Chelsea win came in at the right time as Newcastle might make the most of the confidence gained on this trip.

Prediction: PSG 1-2 Newcastle
