Match Preview

PSG will face Leipzig at the Parc des Princes to play matchday 3 of Group A UEFA Champions League 2021/22, Wednesday (20/10/2021) at  12:30 midnight Indian time.

PSG currently tops Group A standings with a collection of 4 points from 2 matches that have been played. In the opening match, PSG was surprisingly held to a 1-1 draw by Club Brugge, then in the second match, PSG was able to pick up a 2-0 victory over Manchester City through goals from Idrissa Gueye and Lionel Messi.

Ahead of this match itself, PSG is in pretty good shape. Last weekend, appearing without some of its stars, PSG was still able to win over Angers with a score of 2-1 through goals from Danilo Pereira and Kylian Mbappe.

Thanks to the victory over Angers, PSG has now recorded only 1 defeat in their last 12 matches in all competitions (W10 D1 L1). Of course, this record will be a good capital to face Leipzig.

Meanwhile, Leipzig actually performed poorly in the Champions League this season. The semi-finalist of the 2019/20 Champions League last season is currently in the bottom position of the group A standings with a collection of 0 points.

In the 2 matches that have been undertaken, Leipzig has always lost. They lost 3-6 to Manchester City in the opening match, then lost 1-2 to Club Brugge in the second match.

Ahead of this match, Leipzig's performance was also not good. Last weekend, Leipzig was only able to pick 1 point in the Bundesliga after being held to a 1-1 draw by Freiburg. This result made Leipzig only win 1 win in their last 4 matches (W1 D1 L2).

PSG and Leipzig were also in the same group in the Champions League last season. In 2 meetings, PSG and Leipzig were both able to win 1 victory. In the first meeting, Leipzig was able to beat PSG with a score of 2-1, then in the second meeting, PSG was able to win a narrow 1-0 victory over Leipzig.
