Discover five reasons to believe in the victory of Mauricio Pochettino’s men!
Because PSG have the recipe against the Germans

In the last two years, Paris Saint-Germain has already had to deal with the Germans in recent years. In 2020, the two teams faced each other in the semi-finals of the Champions League during the famous Final 8 organized in Lisbon, for a scathing victory for the men of Thomas Tuchel, 3-0. The club then offered its first Champions League final in its history.
Last year, it was during the hens that their paths crossed again. In Germany first of all, for a 2-1 victory for Naglesmann’s men, with two red cards on the Parisian side (Gueye and Kimpembe). On the return, Paris took its revenge, in pain, by winning 1-0 at the Parc des Princes. A history rather to the advantage of the club of the capital which will want to confirm this tonight.
Because leipzig is doing badly

And that’s a crucial factor in this race for qualification. In the Bundesliga, RB Leipzig, second last year ahead of Borussia Dortmund, is only eighth after eight days, and already three defeats on the clock. Performance far removed from those under Julian Nagelsmann, now at the head of Bayern Munich. The American Jesse Marsch is still struggling to take charge of his group, and has not succeeded in passing a course for his group.
Unlike Paris Saint-Germain. In the league, Mauricio Pochettino’s men have won nine of their first 10 games, when the Germans have scarcely three wins. What to give confidence to the club of the capital.
Faced with the big guys, Leipzig struggles
Since the start of the season, RB Leipzig have completely exploded during their big confrontations. Against Bayern Munich, the score was 3-0 after 54 minutes, before finally losing 4-1. In the Champions League, when traveling on the lawn of Manchester City, same observation. An enterprising team, but which loses control when the level goes up. In England, Jesse Marsch and his family leave with a full suitcase and a 6-3 loss.
Something to give hope to the Parisians, both their offensive power, even without Neymar and Di Maria, but with Messi and Mbappé in great shape, seems far too strong for their opponent.
At the Parc in C1, Paris is untouchable

In recent years, PSG has made it a specialty. All the top names of the old continent who have passed through the Parc des Princes have experienced this: a supercharged team, capable of the best, in an atmosphere reminiscent of the heyday of the Boulogne and Auteuil stands. Among them, Manchester City this year (2-1), Real Madrid in 2019 (3-0), Liverpool in 2018 (2-1), Bayern Munich in 2021 and in 2017, or Barça in 2017 (4 -0). Suffice to say that facing a big team does not make Paris tremble.
Because it’s time for the Messi-Mbappé duo

Neymar and Angel Di Maria absent, Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappé will be the two strong men of the Parisian attack tonight. The opportunity for them to shine together. A promising relationship, which asks only to be improved. And without the presence of another monster, Neymar, on the ground, the Argentinian and the French will have all the luxury of being able to exchange the leather. Facing Manchester City, Kylian Mbappé has become a passer for a little gem of Lionel Messi. Facing Leipzig, the Pulga could well return the favor to his new teammate, enough to ignite the stands of the Parc des Princes.
