Napoli vs PSG
Competition: UEFA Champions League
Date: 6 November 2018
Kick-off: 21:00 CET
Napoli touched what would have been a massive victory at PSG two weeks ago, they got equalized 2-2 in added time, but even so, they do have things going for them, in the fight to finish in the top-2; first of all, they are second, on five points, already in the top-2. Second, Liverpool and PSG have already played two games at home; Napoli? One. Third, out of all three giants in this group, they are the only ones to still be undefeated, proving that they are super tough nuts to break. On the other hand, there is something… worrying about their group campaign thus far; they have dropped points against Red Star Belgrade, while both Liverpool and PSG beat the Serbian side. Again, the same coin has another side; Napoli drew in Serbia, while the other two beat Red Star at home. They are third in the Serie A table, in Italy, six points behind leaders Juventus. Last weekend they destroyed Empoli 5-1 at home.
PSG have gotten themselves in trouble in this group… After the draw, seeing they would be facing Liverpool and Napoli, they knew things wouldn’t be easy, but… I doubt they expected to be third in the table after the first three games. Plus, they really got saved by that Ángel Di Maria goal in added time two weeks ago. If it weren’t for the Argentine’s goal, PSG would be four points behind Napoli now, and six behind Liverpool, with their back against the wall. The way things stand, they still depend on themselves, but… they need to start delivering, not only against Red Star (6-1 triumph at home), but against stronger opponents as well. In the Ligue 1 they are… strolling, on 36 points from 12 matches, in other words, having won every single game thus far.

PSG are considered by bookies favorites to win the game. I prefer to focus on goals instead.
Napoli vs PSG: Betting Tips
“Over 2.5 goals” is at 1.53, low, but very probable. Combined with “both teams to score”, it goes up to 1.72, my main – sort of moderate – tip. “Over 3.5 goals” pays 2.37, and I think it’s worth the risk.
