The UEFA Champions League is a very special tournament. Right now, all four teams in the Group of Death are very much alive. That includes PSG and Newcastle, who will collide on Tuesday with the Parisians pegged as our soccer betting online favorites. However, keep in mind that the Magpies already defeated them, or better said, humiliated them.
PSG on a Roll
After a very rocky start, PSG is now meeting expectations. Most recently, the Parisians crushed AS Monaco 5-2 in Ligue 1. I told you to bet on PSG winning and both teams to score.
Besides getting the three points, head coach Luis Enrique is more than happy after five different players scored. Besides Kylian Mbappe, who always scores, Goncalo Ramos, Ousmane Dembele, Vitor Ferreira and Randal Kolo Muani also found the back of the net.
That’s good, but it doesn’t change the fact that Mbappe is the main reason to consider including the Parisians in your soccer picks today. The Frenchman has scored 16 goals in all competitions.
PSG is 7-1-1 at home in all competitions. Regardless of the result, they scored in eight of those matches and finished with a clean sheet six times.
All teams can have a bad day, but defeating them at Parc des Princes is practically impossible. Regarding the UCL, they won their previous two home games with a 5-0 aggregate.
Do or Die for Newcastle
There are only three points between first and fourth place in Group F of the UCL, but Newcastle is at the bottom. Therefore, the Magpies can’t even afford to draw at Parc des Princes. Besides, their chances of winning the English Premier League are shrinking, so winning the UCL should be their top priority.
You can expect Newcastle to be highly motivated after crushing Chelsea 4-1 on Saturday. Alexander Isak, Jamaal Lascelles, Joelinton and Anthony Gordon were the scorers. That’s right, the Magpies have an explosive attacking unit of their own.

I haven’t even mentioned Callum Wilson, who has scored seven goals in the EPL. I’m telling you; you won’t find a better underdog in the UCL odds than Newcastle. Yes, when it comes to the continental tournament, they’re winless on the road, but we’re talking about a team that, on a good day, can get an 8-0 road victory. Just ask Sheffield United.
I know, PSG and Sheffield United aren’t the same, but the point is that Newcastle has talent to spare and can get the Parisians in trouble. Plus, Newcastle has no major injuries to worry about.
Game Total Went Over in First Meeting
Newcastle and PSG collided for the first time ever on Oct. 4. Expectations were high after both spent the most in recent transfer windows. Luckily for all soccer betting enthusiasts, they delivered. Well, Newcastle did, winning 4-1.
Believe it or not, the total for the second leg is set at 2½ goals. You must include the over in your ticket, no doubt about it. In fact, I would recommend betting on the over even if the total was 3½.

PSG vs Newcastle Betting Online Predictions
PSG will take revenge for the humiliation at St. James Park, but it won’t be easy. Regardless of the result, Newcastle scored at least two goals in three of its last five games on the road.
PSG scored three or more goals in its last five games at home and Mbappe is on fire. After all, he’s trying to impress all the powerhouses to get a massive contract next season.
