PSG travel to Maccabi Haifa on Wednesday at 8pm for their second Champions League match of the campaign (UK time).
Despite the slender 2-1 scoreline against Juventus in their opening match of Group H last week, Christophe Galtier’s Parisians were utterly dominant. The capital club should have been out of sight by the time Weston McKennie reduced the deficit in the 53rd minute.
The French champions now make the journey to the Sammy Ofer Stadium knowing they have the firepower and creative cohesion to mount a serious bid for the European title. Maccabi Haifa, meanwhile, face what looks a nigh-on impossible task on paper, tackling Paris’ pre-eminent superclub.

Maccabi Haifa team news
Ali Mohamed was forced to leave the field after only half-an-hour into Maccabi Haifa’s 2-0 loss to Benfica last week, and he is expected to sit this one out having missed the weekend’s win over Sekzia Ness Ziona. That wasn’t the only casualty from the match in Lisbon. Suf Podgoreanu entered the fray for Abdoulaye Seck in the 67th minute but lasted only 11 minutes as he ruptured his Achilles, rendering him unavailable for the foreseeable future.
PSG team news
Presnel Kimpembe sustained a hamstring injury in PSG’s 1-0 win over Brest at the weekend, compounding his miserable match after he also conceded a penalty. Fortunately for him, Gianluigi Donnarumma ultimately saved the spot-kick to spare his blushes. Summer recruit Renato Sanches is also nursing an adductor injury, so Carlos Soler or Fabian Ruiz could come in here.
Scoreline prediction: Maccabi Haifa 0-2 PSG
