Soccer Prediction for 7 November 2018 – Napoli vs Paris Saint-Germain

Paris Saint-Germain’s mainstay winger, Angel di Maria once said that the situation of his team in the European Champions League this season was very risky, after only being able to pack 4 points from 3 matches in the group phase that had taken place and was ranked 3rd. In fact, they almost failed to pick a single point at the home match against Napoli on 3rd matchdays around two weeks ago.

So, what happens when the squad under direction of Tomas Tuchel travel to the headquarters of the Italian Serie A giants? Well, this super big match will take place on Wednesday morning, 7 November 2018 at Stadio San Paolo, Naples.

As the host, Napoli initially were doubtful to compete in this group, considering that on paper, Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool appeared to be superior to Carlo Ancelotti’s squad. They also in fact were held back in a draw in the first match against Red Star Belgrade. But, Napoli have also not swallowed defeat in the first three games, after a successful win over Liverpool, Partenopei managed to pick one point at PSG headquarters, they almost even won the match, if Angel Di Maria did not score the equalizing goal in injury time.

Five points have been collected by Napoli from 3 matches that have taken place and they are now ranked 2nd in the standings, one point behind Liverpool who sit in the standings. Whereas PSG, who collected 4 points, finished in 3rd place, where the situation certainly forced Les Parisiens to win in the remaining group stage matches to open wide opportunities to qualify for the knockout stages.
