PSG vs Ludogorets
Competition: UEFA Champions League
Date: 06 December 2016
Kick-off: 20:45 CET
PSG’s battle with Arsenal will go down to the wire, and unfortunately for the Bulgarian club Ludogorets, they will face the full force of a French team that needs to score plenty of goals if they are to top the group.
Ludogorets are in their own battle with Basel to see who can claim third spot and an entry into the Europa League, just like the top two teams in group A, Basel and Ludogorets are on equal points, this time two. What that means for either Ludogorets or Basel, they have to try and out do their opponents by hopefully beating one of two huge clubs in Europe, as that seems unlikely, it is Basel who have the advantage because they have a better goal difference. Ludogorets, should both teams lose as is expected will have to score four more goals than Basel in order to overtake them for third.
It is a very similar situation for PSG as well, they are on equal points with Arsenal on 11, but they are three goals behind when it comes to goal difference. That means, if both PSG and Arsenal beat their much lower opponents, as to be expected, PSG will have to score four more goals than the Gunners, if they are to claim top spot. It is indeed possible, for Ludogorets have been very porous at the back, conceding 13 goals, the most in group A by some margin.
PSG vs Ludogorets: Previous encounter
The last time these two teams met it was a simple victory for the men from Paris as they claimed a 3-1 win in Bulgaria. Ludogorets were the first to score through Natanael, but then Matuidi and Cavani responded with the latter grabbing a brace in the second half.
PSG vs Ludogorets: Prediction
No one, probably not even Ludogorets, are expecting PSG to lose here, they have too much on the line knowing that Arsenal will no doubt collect three points from their match. PSG will throw everything forward in their hunt for four goals, and it should make for an exciting match. Expect PSG to come close, perhaps even get the four goals they need – but Arsenal will score in their game to take top spot in the group.
PSG vs Ludogorets: Tips
With this set to be a goal fest, you can count on at least two goals from PSG, and of those goals, there is a big chance that their main man Cavani will at least grab one.
