Paris St Germain v Anderlecht 19.45 GMT kickoff
PSG are in incredible form right now. They were certainly impressive with dispatching Celtic 5-0, but for us, they were more so when taking care of Bayern Munich 3-0. It was a highly polished performance and if that wasn’t enough, they trounced Anderlecht at their home ground by 4 goals to nothing. The fact that they’ve scored so many without reply, is a testament to just how good they are.
Despite their efforts, they’ve not qualified yet, but a win tonight would pretty much secure it. Certainly they’ve spent a decent amount to get the team they have, but it’s been money wisely spent and they are very much the team on top of its game right now.
Anderlecht are in the opposite kind of form right now. They’ve lost all 3 of their Champions League matches and have failed to score in any. To say this will be an uphill struggle is an understatement. It’s hard to make a case for them right now. Even a goal would be a major breakthrough for the team and fans and PSG have one of the most solid defences around.
Perhaps one of the most troubling aspects for opponents of PSG is the fact that they’ve done everything so comfortable. Once they’re nicely ahead, they shut up shop and take it relatively calmly, so they’re not 100% pushed to the limit.
Paris St Germain v Anderlecht– summary
We think PSG will go for the early goal or two and then sit on that lead. They have a great chance to keep their winning momentum going and hopefully secure a place in the next round.
