Vllaznia are rock bottom of the UEFA Women’s Champions League standings in Group A.
They have been well out of their depth against some of Europe’s best women’s teams and are destined to finish at the foot of the table.
Another Tough European Night for the Albanians?
On the opening day of the 2022-23 Women’s Champions League, the Albanians were beaten at home by Spanish side Real Madrid. Real’s two goals came in the second period in Shkoder.
Vllaznia were embarrassed by Chelsea at Kingsmeadow in the English capital in game two. The Women’s Super League champions ran riot on their own patch, with the excellent Sam Kerr helping herself to four goals in the 8-0 rout.
Vllaznia then suffered another heavy defeat on the road on matchday three. This time, Paris put five past them without reply at Stade Jean-Bouin in Paris.
Vllaznia are the dominant force in Albanian women’s soccer, but the Red and Blues from Shkoder find it tough going against Europe’s elite in the Champions League.
Still, can they cause an upset on home turf this Thursday? Check out the Vllaznia vs PSG odds, tips and predictions below.

Paris Saint-Germain are embroiled in a fascinating scrap with Real Madrid for second place in Group A. Right now, the pair are level in the UEFA Women’s Champions League standings on four points each after three games played. On the penultimate matchday, the pair go head-to-head in Madrid.
Another Easy Win for In-Form Blaugrana?
Before turning their attention to Real, Paris will want no less than three points from their trip to Albania in midweek. Precheur’s side eased past them on home soil two weeks back, thumping Vllaznia 5-0 at Stade Jean-Bouin in the French capital.
Prior to that, however, PSG had taken just one point from their opening two Champions League fixtures. They were narrowly beaten by Chelsea at home in game one, but the Red and Blues battled hard to leave the Alfredo Di Stefano in Madrid with a goalless draw.
Paris are unbeaten in their domestic league in ten matches, winning eight and drawing two.
They have been in great form in recent months, with the Champions League loss to Chelsea being their only reverse since losing to Lyon in the 2022 Trophee des Championnes in August.
With Real facing off against Group A favorites Chelsea on Thursday, three points for PSG in Albania would be massive. They are heavily fancied to get the win, and the Parisians should be too strong for Vllaznia.

Vllaznia vs. Paris Saint-Germain Pick and Prediction
Vllaznia will be desperate to restore some pride after two heavy Champions League defeats.
Unfortunately for them, PSG are one of the toughest teams to play in women’s soccer right now, and the French outfit will surely be too strong once again.
Paris will move on to seven points with a win and can then turn their attention to Real Madrid and Chelsea in their two remaining Group A matches.
PSG have kept back-to-back clean sheets in the Champions League, and we fancy the French team to win to nil in Albania. Also, have a punt on Paris to win both halves.
