PSG start their participation this season in the Champions League at home where they host Arsenal. Last season they were eliminated in the Quarter-finals by Manchester City, so they hope that can at least repeat that success. They didn’t make the good start of the season in Ligue 1 and after 4 rounds they are standing at the 7th position. Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Manchester United) and David Luiz (Chelsea) both left the club, while on the other side Unai Emery replaced Loreunt Blanc. In the previous league match they took only one point against St Etienne. Home side were very strong in the last few seasons and they still have very good squad, but in my opinion will not be impressive this season as they used to be. Home side failed to win in the last two matches and they want to make good result upfront their supporters.
Arsenal played very good in the Champions League, but they didn’t have luck in the draw, so in the 1/8-finals they were eliminated by FC Barcelona. They have two wins in a row in Premier League and will be fully motivated to make good performance in the opening match of CL. After defeat in the first round of Premier League against Liverpool 3-4, team from London started to play better and they are unbeaten in the last three matches. Defeat against Liverpool was their only one in the last 18 matches in all competitions (including friendlies). Other two teams in this group, Basel and Ludogorets, are much weaker, so the winner of the match between PSG vs Arsenal will have the big chances to reach the first position in the Group A.
In home side Thiago Silva, Aurier, Kurzawa, Pastore and Maxwell are all doubtful. On the other side, visitors will be without Mertesacker, Welbeck, Debuchy and Jenkinson, while Gabriel, Koscielny and Ramsey are all doubtful.
Home side have an advantage of home field and they are closer to win this game, but their form is not at the high level. On the other side, Arsenal play very good and they know how to score, but their defence is very shaky. I expect interesting match between PSG vs Arsenal and goals in both nets.
