PSG vs Newcastle odds
*Odds correct as of 12:15 on November 27
Group F — the ‘group of death’ — remains extremely open with just three points separating the four teams going into the final two matchweeks. Hosts PSG are looking to bounce back following a 2-1 defeat away at AC Milan last time out, but they still remain second in the group on six points. What’s more, the French champions beat Reims 3-0 away from home before the international break courtesy of a Kylian Mbappe hat-trick, before a 5-2 victory over title rivals Monaco at the weekend.
As for Newcastle, they made a great start to their Champions League return, drawing away in Milan before thrashing PSG 4-1 at home. However, they’ve hit a stumbling block since then with back-to-back defeats to Borussia Dortmund, meaning they sit bottom of the group. Simply put, the Magpies have to win here to keep their knockout hopes realistically alive. They may experience a little boost, however, coming into this game off the back of a 4-1 win over Chelsea.
