The stats behind our Real Sociedad vs PSG predictions:

  • PSG are yet to keep a clean sheet away from home in this season’s Champions League.
  • Real Sociedad have scored at least once in each of their four games (all comps) since losing the first leg against PSG.
  • Kylian Mbappe has four Champions League goals to his name this season and is the only PSG player to score more than once in the competition.
  • Mbappe opened the scoring in the first leg against Real Sociedad.

Can PSG finish the job amid Mbappe noise?

With Mbappe looking set to leave and disappointing recent results in Ligue 1 just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the PSG soap opera, it’s easy to forget this is a club still searching for a first-ever Champions League success.

For all the mess around the club right now, the Parisians have left themselves in a good spot after winning the first leg against Real Sociedad 2-0 at home.

That victory came thanks to Mbappe’s opener, followed up by a Bradley Barcola strike. And despite his conflict with his star Frenchman right now, manager Luis Enrique will surely start Mbappe here in order to get the job done.

San Sebastian isn’t an easy place to go, but Real Sociedad head into this match on a run of just one win in their last nine across all competitions and look to be burning out. PSG could find some refuge from the recent noise with Champions League progression.

Of course, that all will depend on Mbappe actually playing, with Enrique bringing him off at half-time in the recent goalless draw with Monaco, explaining it was a ‘coaching decision’ as he seeks to adjust his team to playing without their talisman.

“It’s 100% a coach’s decision,” the PSG coach said. “Sooner or later, we will have to get used to playing without Kylian. It’s a decision that I made with the aim of doing the best for the team.”

With all the turmoil around PSG right now, it’s little surprise to see the odds closing considerably between these two sides. However, it still feels unrealistic to expect an out-of-form Real Sociedad side to overturn a two-goal deficit.
