PSG vs Real Sociedad Prediction: PSG’s Phenomenon

Europe, Champions League, Wednesday, February 14th 20:00 (UK)

Kylian Mbappe is PSG’s biggest star. He’s a phenomenal football player and an emphatic goal scorer. This could well be the Frenchman’s final opportunity to win the Champions League with his current club, given his transfer speculation.

The hosts are clear favourites on Wednesday night. They’re no bigger than 1.70 to record an opening-leg victory. Real Sociedad will prove a tricky test. They’re an organised outfit and won’t give you any straightforward opportunities. Imanol Alguacil’s men are as big as 6.0 to record a shock win in the French capital.

Mbappe is the best player in France by some distance. He’s bagged 20 times in Ligue 1 this term, nine more than any other player. All three of his Champions League goals have come at this venue, and I’m confident that he’ll find the back of the net once again. Les Parisiens will know that they’ll need a positive result at Parc des Princes. They’ve lost just once here in 23/24.

PSG’s number seven has featured at this venue 14 times across all competitions in 23/24. The Frenchman has found the back of the net on ten separate occasions.

Kylian Mbappe recorded 22 shots in the Group Stage, with half of those hitting the target. In PSG’s three matches at this stadium in the Group Stage, Mbappe managed 3.39xG alone.

Given the home side are odds-on to score multiple times in this encounter, I believe backing the star man is the best bet. It’s an appealing price for one of the best players in world football at this current moment.

Match OPTA Stats: Raul is in Mbappe’s sights

  • Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappé has scored in each of his last five UEFA Champions League games against Spanish opposition, netting seven goals in total in these matches. In fact, Mbappé is the last player to score a hat-trick against a Spanish side in the knockout stages of the competition, having done so against Barcelona back in February 2021 (for PSG in the round of 16).
  • Real Sociedad have lost three of their six meetings with French opponents in all competitions (W2 D1). They’ve lost both such games in the UEFA Champions League – going down 1-0 in both legs of a last 16 tie against Lyon in 2003-04.
  • Paris Saint-Germain failed to win any of their last three group stage games (D2 L1). They last went four UEFA Champions League games without a win in the same campaign between MD6 and the quarter final in 2014-15 (D2 L3).
  • Kylian Mbappé has scored 43 goals in 67 appearances in the UEFA Champions League. Should the Paris Saint-Germain forward find the net in this game, he would overtake Raúl (43) for most goals scored in the competition while 25 or under, with only Lionel Messi (59) netting more than those two.
