Yuran will check Abascal’s credibility:
“Paris NN” – “Spartak”. Abascal, destroyer of hopes
PSG did not start the season in the best way. In five games in the French Championship, they beat only Lens (3-1) and Lyon (4-1), which are in the relegation zone. The Parisians also drew with Lorient (0-0) and Toulouse (1-1). In the last round match they lost to Nice (2-3) in their stadium.
Even the efforts of the captain of the French team, Kylian Mbappé, were not enough to beat the Aguiluchos. The forward scored a double. He has already scored seven goals in four Ligue 1 games. And this despite the fact that the Parisian team has scored 10 goals this season.
We can say that Mbappé leads PSG almost alone. There is no stability or confidence in the game of the rest of the red and blue players. This is largely due to the departure of key players, particularly Neymar, Marco Verratti and Leandro Paredes. Furthermore, Luis Enrique still hasn’t gotten used to it completely.
The players acquired by PSG in the summer (Ousmane Dembélé, Milan Skriniar, Randal Kolo Muani, Gonçalo Ramos, Lucas Hernández and several promising youngsters) have not yet fully compensated for the loss of players who left. It turns out that all hopes are on Kylian Mbappé, who missed the training camp due to a conflict with the Parisian management.

“Krasnodar” – “Dynamo”. Sparks will fly in all directions!
Borussia Dortmund started the new season with more confidence than PSG. In four matches in the German championship they did not suffer a defeat. The yellow-blacks tied with Bochum (1-1) and Heidenheim (2-2). First they beat Cologne (1-0) and then Freiburg (4-2).
The last game is the most interesting. The opponents were a strong club. However, despite the guest factor, Edin Terzic’s team was statistically better and deservedly earned three points. The last point of the match was scored by the veteran leader of the Bumblebees, Marco Reus. He scored in the 90th minute + 2.
Dortmund also had some problems due to many first team players leaving the team in the summer, particularly Jude Bellingham. However, Terzic, although not without difficulties and problems, found good replacements for the players who left the team in the internal reserve.
Like PSG, Dortmund have a very prolific striker in Doniell Malen. In his last 17 Bundesliga games he scored 12 goals and provided four assists. He also recently helped his team beat Schott (6-1) in the National Cup, scoring with an assist.
In our opinion, it is difficult to identify the favorite for the next match. Both teams have some problems. Terzic deals with them better than Luis Enrique. However, the Parisians have many more stars in their squad. In addition, the match will take place in their home stadium: the Parc des Princes.
In this situation, the best option to bet seems to be HP + TB 2.5 goals at odds of 1.88. The Parisians and Dortmund have defensive problems. They concede a lot, even in encounters with strangers, and lose points.
On the other hand, both teams almost always obtain good results. This season they score, of course, less than the previous one. However, this is just the beginning. I believe things will gradually improve in the future. Dortmund are already making some progress.
Prediction and bets for the Champions League match PSG – Borussia D September 19, 2023
In their stadium, PSG will probably be able to score one or two goals against Borussia, which has fewer resources. Offensive leader Kylian Mbappé is in excellent shape. Sometimes only he is capable of achieving results. Dortmund also has a player like that in their squad. And in general, despite the departure of the leaders, the “bees” look serene. His victory is even a little more believable. The collective game of the yellow-blacks is better.
Tender: both will score and the total will be more than 2.5 goals for 1.88.
