Newcastle and PSG face each other Wednesday, October 4th in one of the most anticipated matchups this week. The game will take place at St James’ Park in Newcastle. On matchday one, Newcastle welcomed themselves back to the big stage with a valiant 0-0 draw away against AC Milan, while PSG defeated Borussia Dortmund 2-0 and are heavy favorites to make it out of their “Group of Death”. Parisians sit atop of the table with an unblemished record while Dortmund and AC Milan share second spot.
Newcastle drew 0-0 in their opening match versus AC Milan, however it should be emphasized that Milan were unable to capitalize on their superiority. Newcastle is currently on a 3-game winning streak in the English Premier League, and a home victory could be taken into account considering their impressive performance in the EFL Cup victory against a star-studded Man City. Newcastle’s troubles with injuries are becoming worse. Due to hamstring injuries, Joelinton and Callum Wilson are doubtful to play, and Sven Botman is also going out. Joe Willock has been injured the entire season and has not competed.
Luis Enrique’s side are still adapting to his coaching, as they employ a different style under his tutelage. They currently sit fifth in Ligue 1, although they’ve struggled on their travels this year; having played out a scoreless draw against Clermont Foot last Saturday might signal similar results against this opposition. Mbappe will be an essential asset for Paris and has already scored 35 goals in this competition, second only to Karim Benzema for French teams in Champions League history. Nuno Mendes will be sidelined until the beginning of 2024 due to a significant hamstring injury, while Marco Asensio is still out because of a foot problem. Sergio Rico and Keylor Navas, two goalkeepers, are additionally improbable to appear on Enrique’s game day roster.
This will be the inaugural matchup between these two sides and it promises to be an exciting one. Both have excellent talent that should ensure an entertaining game.
