A win here would see PSG qualify for the Champions League knockout rounds for the 11th consecutive season after taking eight points from the opening four matches (W2 D2).

The French side have only lost one of their last 32 group stage games at the Parc des Princes in the Champions League (W25 D6), with their lone defeat in this run coming against Manchester United in October 2020 (1-2), averaging 2.7 goals per game across this period and netting 86 times in total. However, PSG have only kept one clean sheet in their last 10 matches in the Champions League (1-0 v Real Madrid in February), while conceding in each of their last five outings. They are one of just eight of the 32 teams in this season’s Champions League who have failed to record a shutout across the opening four matchdays.

Maccabi Haifa recorded a famous 2-0 win over Juventus last time out in the competition and could become the first ever Israeli side to win consecutive matches in the Champions League with another surprise result in Paris. Omer Atzili has scored twice for Maccabi Haifa in the Champions League this season, while the last Israeli player to net more in a single campaign in the competition was Eran Zahavi for Hapoel Tel Aviv in 2010-11 (3).

PSG vs Maccabi Haifa match stats

Since Kylian Mbappé’s debut in the Champions League in September 2016, only Robert Lewandowski been directly involved in more non-penalty goals (55) than the Frenchman (54 – 34 goals, 20 assists). Furthermore, in the same period, no player has made more assists in the competition than Mbappé (20). 

Mbappé has been directly involved in 16 goals in his 15 Ligue 1 and Champions League appearances so far in 2022/23 (14 goals, 2 assists) and has scored three goals and provided two assists in his last three matches across all competitions. 

Lionel Messi has scored more goals from outside the box in Europe’s top five leagues and the Champions League since the beginning of the 2020/21 season than any other player (14), with the Argentinian also scoring four free-kicks in that period.

Messi has been in sensational form so far in 2022/23, scoring eight goals and providing 10 assists in his 14 league and UCL appearances and could become the first player in Europe’s top five leagues to score 10+ goals and provide 10+ assists across those two competitions this term with a brace.
