A huge clash in Group H of the Champions League between two of the biggest names in Europe. If you’re looking for all the stats behind PSG and Juve’s seasons so far, you’ve found the right place. I’ve put together all the numbers for the goals, shots, corners and cards betting markets to place a winning bet builder.
PSG lineup with the famous MNM – Messi, Neymar and Mbappe all start.
Mendes and Vitinha are both brought into the midfield in place of Bernat and Sanches.
A much changed lineup for Allegri’s low-flying Juventus side. In need of goals, both Milik and Vlahovic start.
Reverting to a 3-4-3, Sandro is dropped with Kostic at wing-back.
The game comes too early for Di Maria to play his former side after getting injured in midweek.
Goals have not been hard to come by for the hosts – 4 per game and an xG of 2.74.
Safe to say, they’ve been dominating Ligue 1 so far.
Juventus have been struggling for goals, hence their 3 draws from 5 this season.
They’re lucky to keep their unbeaten record give their opponents have outmuscled them for xG.
Player Shots and Shots on Target
Messi, Neymar and Mbappe dominate the shot count in France. Between them over 13 shots a game and over 7 on target.
For Juventus, Milik tops the shots on target despite just 1.64 shots per 90. Vlahovic has nearly double the shots per 90, but with a 33% accuracy.
Cuadrado will be in a more advanced wing-back role than he has played recently, so will get more chances if Juventus can get forward.
Player Goals and Assists
13 goal contributions for Neymar this season in just 6 games.
That’s closely followed by Messi’s 9, and Mbappe’s 7.
4 in 4 for Dusan Vlahovic, who is the big threat for Juve. Milik and Di Maria are the only others to have got on the scoresheet this season.
PSG’s defence rack up the fouls, with Kimpembe making over 3 a game.
Sergio Ramos is always one to look out for too, especially in a Champions League game.
Youngster Miretti has earned himself a start, and that might be helped by the number of fouls he draws and dribbles he attempts from midfield.
Match-ups to watch:
Verratti vs Miretti
Kimpembe vs Cuadrado
Ramos vs Milik
Juvenus tend to gie away fouls on the wings, with Sandro, Kostic and Danilo all getting in the book this season.
Paredes’ stats are somewhat skewed by his lack of minutes.
No surprises here, with Neymar drawing over 3 fouls a game, and attempting 3 dribbles per 90 too.
Messi and Neymar have been attempting over 6 and 7 dribbles a game.
Cuadrado vs Mendes/Messi
Kostic vs Neymar
Danilo vs Neymar
Bonucci vs Mbappe
That’s it for this stats pack, but I have tons more where that came from on my website. If you’re placing a bet builder on this game, keep the stakes low and most importantly enjoy the football.
It should be a cracker.
