Champions League Preview, Arsenal Vs. PSG: Live Streaming, Prediction, Starting Lineups, And Betting Tips

Two leading teams of Group A, Arsenal and PSG, will battle against each other at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday as both teams are vying to seal the top spot.

Arsenal and PSG hold ten points each in the group as the home side leads on goal difference only. With qualification already assured, both teams will try to enter the knock-out round as the group winners.

The match drew 1-1 when these two side met in the first leg of the Champions League at Paris Saint-Germain’s home turf.

Arsenal fans want their team to qualify as the group leaders in order to avoid the big guns on the pre-quarters round. Knocked out by Barcelona in the same stage last year, Arsenal will likely come onto the pitch with a mentality to win vs. the French side.

Topping the group is also a target for PSG, and they will try to disappoint the home fans by beating the Gunners.

Team News: Arsenal

Arsenal were below par in their performance against Manchester United this weekend. Though the match resulted in a 1-1 draw, Arsene Wenger’s side failed to put up a quality performance on the day, and once again their big-game winning credential was questioned.

Santi Cazorla, once again this season, is unfit to start a match due to an achilles injury. His absence from the team can hamper Arsenal’s creativity in midfield.

Right-back Hector Bellerin, who is one of the star performers for Arsenal this season, will be sidelined due to a foot injury he picked on the match against Tottenham.

The likes of Danny Welbeck, Chuba Akpom, and Lucas Perez also will be unavailable for the PSG match.

Olivier Giroud gave a brilliant performance after coming off the bench vs. Manchester United as his goal snatched an unlikely point for the Gunenrs. He is likely to start vs. PSG.

Arsenal: Predicted Line-up (4-2-3-1)
Cech- Jenkinson, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal – Coquelin, Xhaka – Sanchez, Ozil, Iwobi – Giroud

PSG suffered a huge blow when Angel Di Maria came out limping during the match against Nantes this weekend. The Paris outfit’s attack will be dimmed in absence of the star midfielder.

Alphonse Areola and Layvin Kurzawa are unavailable for selection due to ankle and groin injuries, respectively.
Midfielder Adrien Rabiot picked up a hamstring injury whilst on the international duty with France, which will keep him out of this game.

No further injuries have been reported otherwise. However, Marco Veratti and Thiago Motta are both a yellow card away from suspension.

PSG: Predicted Line-up (4-3-3)

Trapp – Maxwell, Aurier, Kimpembe, Silva- Motta, Matuidi, Verratti- Lucas Moura, Cavani, Augustin

Arsenal vs PSG: Prediction

Arsenal and PSG are the two dominant teams of Group A, and both are still unbeaten on this year’s European campaign. Last match between these sides, which was also a group stage match, resulted in 1-1 draw. Both teams look strong at the moment.

A slight advantage is for Arsenal in this tie because they are playing in front of their fans. Since both teams are already qualified for next rounds, each will look to seal the top spot of Group A.

The match is going to be very competitive, and we expect nothing less than a thrilling encounter between these footballing giants. However, home side is likely to emerge victorious.

Final Predicted Score: Arsenal 1-0 PSG
