The stage is set at St James’ Park for Newcastle’s first home Champions League match since March 2003.

Eddie Howe’s men ground out a tough 0-0 draw away to AC Milan in matchday 1, whilst PSG comfortably beat Borussia Dortmund 2-0. This is the group of death and most of the attention will be on this match on Wednesday evening.

Newcastle vs PSG Predicted Lineups

Botman blow for the Magpies

The home side will be without Harvey Barnes until December with a broken toe. They have several injury doubts for this clash including key defender Sven Botman who is unlikely to be available. The Toon Army will therefore have to go with a centre back pairing of Fabian Schar and Jamaal Lascelles. Newcastle also have concerns surrounding Joelinton, who might only be fit enough to be on the bench. Callum Wilson has been carrying a knock so Alexander Isak should start upfront in their traditional 4-3-3 lineup.

Familiar lineup for the French Champions

The visitors are without Presnel Kimpembe and Marco Asensio. There won’t be too many surprises in this XI with Kylian Mbappé leading the line alongside Randal Kolo Muani. Head coach Luis Enrique will lineup with his traditional 4-3-3 system with academy product Warren Zaire-Emery set to keep his place in the side. The 17-year-old is one of the brightest young prospects to come out of the PSG youth system in several years and has been embracing all the challenges put before him so far.

Newcastle vs PSG Team Stats

Raining cards in newcastle games

Newcastle average 2.57 goals per game which is aided by a huge 8-0 win vs Sheffield United. They have strong xG and xGA metrics though and are a legitimate force. Their shots against average of 11.71 will be tested in a fixture such as this one, as will their average corners against of just 4.29. One thing which really stands out is the number of cards issued to both teams in Newcastle games. An average of exactly six cards have been awarded so the referee could be kept busy in this scintillating Champions League tie.

Corner numbers are something to watch with PSG

PSG also have impressive metrics, especially defensively where their average goals against is just 0.86. Newcastle struggled to be much of an offensive threat in Milan and might face similar difficulties. PSG fire in a lot of shots per game (17.29) although only average just over five on target. Corners have been commonplace in their games at an average of over 10. They’ve also managed to draw plenty of cards from their opponents (2.43).

Newcastle vs PSG Shots and Shots on Target Stats

Isak’s impressive accuracy

Three players stand out in the shooting categories for Newcastle with Alexander Isak leading the line averaging 3.26 shots per game. His accuracy has always been impressive, and he racks up nearly two shots on target per 90 minutes. He is 1.33 to have one or more shots on target which looks a nice addition to any bet builder. Both Anthony Gordon and Miguel Almiron like to chance their luck and would be better off being backed in the 2+ shots market at 1.29 each.

Mbappé is a mighty menace

It’s no surprise to see Kylian Mbappé dominate PSG’s offensive stats. He averages over five shots per 90 minutes with nearly two on target. In some high profile matches he often takes it upon himself to make the difference so we should be on the lookout for him to contribute. He is 1.73 to have two or more shots on target at St James’ Park and 1.30 to have three or more shots. Either option could be worth considering for your Newcastle bet builder. Achraf Hakimi has been shooting much more regularly this season (2.46) and is on some set pieces. He is 1.67 to have two or more shots which is not a bad price.

Newcastle vs PSG Goals and Assists Stats

Flash Gordon to strike?

Alexander Isak is Newcastle’s top scorer this season so far and can be backed at 2.80 to score anytime. One player who has certainly been in good form this season is former Everton man Anthony Gordon. He has weighed in with two goals and two assists. He could be a dual threat and is 2.8 to score or assist, which could be an appealing price to those favouring the hosts in this fixture.

Mbappé by far the biggest threat

It’s a bit repetitive but it goes without saying that Kylian Mbappé will pose the biggest threat to Newcastle United. He comfortably leads the PSG scoring charts this season and if he’s in the mood then few across the entire world can keep tabs on him. Despite this, the forward is still odds-against at 2.20 to score anytime in the North East of England. This will be a tempting price for many people to add to their PSG bet builder.

Newcastle Cards and Fouls Stats

Gordon not a goody two shoes

Newcastle average 2.57 cards per match and PSG draw 2.43 from their opponents, so it makes sense to look at several Magpies to go into the book. Anthony Gordon has amassed five cards and his matchup with Achraf Hakimi makes for interesting viewing in both directions. Gordon averages 1.50 fouls per 90 minutes and can be backed at 1.25 to have one foul or more. The midfield duo of Tonali and Bruno Guimaraes both average close to a couple of fouls per 90 but neither are great value either at 1.25 or 1.20 respectively.

Dembele dribbling danger

Kylian Mbappé is not the most fouled PSG player, possibly because he is too elusive and defenders prefer to stand off him more. The biggest foul magnet is former Barcelona man Ousmane Dembele who averages a massive 8.91 dribbles per 90. Randal Kolo Muani is another high dribbler and the entire Newcastle defence, especially the full backs Kieran Trippier and Dan Burn will be vulnerable. Burn can be backed at 1.44 for one or more fouls and this looks a juicy price to add into any Newcastle vs PSG bet builder.

PSG Cards and Fouls Stats

Zaire-Emery could come under pressure

PSG only average 1.43 cards per game but in the Champions League away from home in a big match this might increase. Newcastle have drawn a whopping 3.43 cards from their opponents on average so there could be some value in this market. Youngster Warren Zaire-Emery has picked up a couple of cards this season and his inexperience and youthful exuberance could see him goaded into doing something rash. He is 1.36 to commit a foul and as big as 3.75 to be carded. Either option could be considered for your PSG bet builder.

Gordon and Guimaraes could get kicked

Anthony Gordon has been fouled three times per game, perhaps due to his high dribbling rate. He will come up against Achraf Hakimi and the Moroccan international is as short as 1.17 to commit one or more fouls. This looks poor value although Hakimi will be tested. Both Bruno Guimaraes and Sean Longstaff have also drawn several fouls which leads more weight to Ziare-Emery having problems in this game. Manuel Ugarte could also come under some pressure.
