PSG vs Real Sociedad Tips


PSG rode their luck in the Champions League group-stage as they trundled to three without a win in their final three matches in a tough group.

  • Head To Head
  • PSG Form 
  • Real Sociedad Form 

Real Sociedad were excellent in their group as they avoided defeat across their six European outings. 

  • PSG won twice at home in the group-stage (D1)
  • PSG saw under 3.5 goals scored in five of their six matches
  • Real Sociedad did not score a goal in any of their final two group matches 
  • Sociedad saw less than 3.5 goals scored in five of their six group games

Head To Head


The two sides are yet to meet in a competitive match, meaning their Champions League Round of 16 game will be their first meetings. 

PSG Form 


PSG were very inconsistent across their group-stage campaign, with the side winning just two of their opening six matches. 

Admittedly, their group was a tough one, with Newcastle, AC Milan and Borussia Dortmund also vying for position, but it was still a group the French side should have topped. As it was, PSG lost two of their three away games, meaning they know they have to build a lead following their home tie this week. 

PSG beat Dortmund 2-0 and Milan 3-0 at home, with the side twice keeping opponents to nil, while they also saw less than 3.5 goals scored across five of their six matches. Sociedad will arrive looking to keep the scoreline down, meaning this game will not likely be a goal-fest. 

Real Sociedad Form 


Real Sociedad were brilliant across their group-stage campaign as they secured top-spot in Group D, finishing ahead of Inter Milan, Benfica and RB Salzburg. 

Their ladder-topping campaign was built on keeping the ball out of their own net, with the side conceding twice in six games meaning they were able to boast the best defence of any side in the group-stage. 

Keeping PSG at bay will not be easy, but Sociedad kept three clean sheets in three away games on the road, while they have kept two clean sheets in their last two European outings. 

Verdict

I am backing this game to see less than 3.5 goals as the pair jostle for position ahead of the second-leg. Despite not being perfect this season, I am backing PSG to take advantage of playing at home this week by securing a win and a first-leg lead.
