Newcastle will play PSG in the UCL

PSG and Newcastle who are both engaged in a tough competition to advance to the Champions League knockout stages, will meet again at Parc des Princes

(Football news) Newcastle is just two points behind PSG in second place in Group F, where the two lost their most recent match. Thus, the Magpies would move ahead of their distinguished hosts in the standings with a rematch of their 4-1 victory on Tyneside in October.

Appropriately for this year’s “Group of Death,” a quartet consisting of PSG, Newcastle, AC Milan, and Borussia Dortmund appears destined for an intense finale, with advancement to the round of 16 possibly hanging in the balance.

Going into the penultimate round of matches, all four are separated by just three points, therefore each player still controls their own destiny: Thus, Paris Saint-Germain is aware that two victories from two would advance them.

Though Skriniar’s early goal at San Siro was reversed by goals from Giroud and Leao, the French champs fell 2-1 at Milan earlier this month, making the situation even more favorable.

As a result, PSG has now lost three straight away games in Europe’s top competition, which is a first since 2018. They have also lost two of their past three Champions League group games, which is as many as they had in the previous eighteen.

The Ligue 1 leaders have lost six of their last eight Champions League encounters with English clubs, including the last two, most notably a humiliating 4-1 loss at St James’ Park earlier this season. They will face Newcastle in a much anticipated rematch at a crowded Parc des Princes.

Luis Enrique’s team has been playing well at home lately, so they are well-prepared for Tuesday’s match. However, another loss would put them in jeopardy of finishing in the top two in Group F.

After the international break, PSG returned to action on Friday night in the French capital against Monaco, with the latter trailing by just three points going into the game.

Enrique’s team easily won 5-2, and captain Kylian Mbappe scored a goal from the penalty spot to give his club a commanding lead at the top of Ligue 1. In the eight games since then, Enrique’s team has won seven and scored three goals or more.
