PSG’ on the Top of Group H Standings
Paris Saint-Germain sits on top of the Group H standings as they share the same point with Benfica, who will play Maccabi Haifa as they close the group matches.
The last game in this Group will determine how the standings will end, including who will top the Group and who will finish third.

Juventus vs. Paris Saint-Germain Odds
Juventus Odds Breakdown
From the Juventus odds today, we can see that the Old Lady is the underdog going into this match. And undoubtedly, they’ve not been doing well since the start of this season’s Champions League schedule.
The team looked good on paper, but they’ve been battered by the top two sides in the Group. As a result, we are not surprised about the team’s +425 odds, making their winning chance slim.
However, we can’t write them off because their Europa League qualification is at stake, and they would need to either win, draw, or hope that Haifa doesn’t get anything from their game against Benfica.
PSG Odds Breakdown
On the other hand, PSG statistics put them as one of the top contenders for the title, and even though they are traveling to Turin for this match, they have a special team that can dominate games.
Therefore, we are not surprised that they have a high chance of winning and are favorites for the Juventus vs PSG prediction.
Juventus vs. Paris Saint-Germain Information
- Competition: UEFA Champions League – Juventus vs. Paris Saint-Germain
- Location of the Game: Allianz Stadium, Turin
- Time: Wednesday, 02 Nov 2022, 02:00 PM EDT
- How to Watch: ESPN+
The season started promising for Juventus, but they didn’t meet their potential in the last five games.
When the Group H teams were done, it seemed like they would be fighting for the top spot with PSG, but after the loss against PSG and Benfica, it looked bleak. They still had a shot at a top-two finish when they beat Maccabi Haifa in the first leg.
But the loss in the second leg put them in a precarious situation. The team needed a win against Benfica but ended up losing again.
Battling for the Third Position
With that, they are stuck battling for the third position so they can go to the UEFA Europa League. However, they still need to match Maccabi Haifa’s result.
Therefore, the game against PSG is a must-win, which is difficult for the Old Lady. And the long list of injured players doesn’t help their case.
PSG’s Missing Players
They would miss:
- Paul Pogba
- Dusan Vlahovic
- Leandro Paredes
- Angel Di Maria
- Federico Chiesa
With these players out, they will have a limited number of talents to help them against PSG.
The possibility of missing out on European football entirely is high because if they can’t win or draw against PSG and Haifa manages to get the point against Benfica, they will drop to fourth place.
So, we expect Maximiliano Allegri to put his best players on the pitch and hope they can stop the Messi, Neymar, and Mbappe combined attack.
The Paris Saint-Germain team has had an exciting season so far. They’ve remained unbeaten in the league and UCL.
The champions of France are in a blazing form that only a few teams can match. They have a formidable attack, with Neymar, Mbappe, and Messi leading the line for the champions.
They’ve already beaten Juventus in the first leg and have the same squad that did the job in Paris. Therefore, they are more likely going to win this game, and winning the Group is at stake.
Therefore, the Champions League betting for this game is pretty in their favor since they are the obvious choice.
However, we can’t write Juventus off since they will be playing in Turin, giving them the home advantage. Therefore, we expect the team to fight hard for a win.
But PSG is one team that won’t go down without a fight, and at their full force, they can defeat any team in Europe. So, we look forward to how they will line up for the match.
We expect the lineup with the front three unchanged and the back four to stay the same with:
- Achraf Hakimi
- Presnel Kimpembe
- Sergio Ramos
Undoubtedly, Gianluigi Donnaruma will handle the sticks, and he has enough experience playing against Juventus. Therefore, that can come in handy for this tie.
Juventus vs. Paris Saint-Germain Pick and Prediction
Juventus used to be a powerhouse in the UEFA Champions League, and a game like this would have promised end-to-end action with both sides gunning for the win.
However, we now have a lackluster Juventus team saddled with injuries. But we expect the Old Lady to retain its pride and try to get the win against a formidable PSG team.
Both teams need the win in this game because they are both gunning to retain their spot in the Champions League standings.
Therefore, they should both bring their A-game to the match, making it a fun game to anticipate.
Who to Bet On?
However, we expect PSG to take charge of the match. They would most likely control it from start to finish, making them the favorites,
The odds, stats, and previous performances in the league put PSG as the likely winner, and we believe they would live up to the hype even though they are not the home team.
But like they did in Paris, PSG will take home the win, although it will be slim. Therefore, our Juventus vs PSG prediction is PSG to win and both teams to score.
Or you can go for the over 2.5 total goals option if you want to play it safe.
UCL Pick: Over 1.5 (-160)
