Paris Saint Germain FC vs Juventus FC - Group H - September 6th, 2022

First week jitters are to be canceled immediately as the group of death, Group H is putting on a show with PSG versus Juventus in Week 1.

PSG are currently dominating all teams within the French League and the big three trio of Messi, Mbappe and Neymar has been deadly to say the least.

The Parisians were drawn into a group with Juventus, Benfica, and Maccabi Haifa, three of the deeper teams in the competition.

They are still favoured to get out of the group but it will not be as easy as many may think.

The attacking talent of PSG is enough to take on most any team in the world and there will be a ton of goals scored when they are playing.

However, they need to tighten up on the defensive end and make sure nothing is getting past the final third.

Juventus Turin have started off slightly slow in the Serie A through the first few weeks, only winning one and drawing two.

The men in the black and white have high expectations for the season but are not the world beaters they once were.

However, the talent on the squad is very raw and young, meaning that there are massive opportunities for them to do damage to the top teams in the world.

Although Serie A is one of the best competitions in the world, Juventus realizes that the upset potential is high in the Champions League.

Look for Juve to make a game against PSG and force them to play at a higher level then they are used to.

Betting Prediction - Juventus +1.5 as they are away from home in a matchup versus the best French team in the world.

Napoli FC vs Liverpool FC - Group A - September 7th, 2022

In another tough draw for an Italian team, Napoli are set to take on Liverpool at home in week one of group play in the CL.

The side from Naples has started off their campaign in the Serie A with a ton of entertaining goals and massive victories.

Their form looks to have continued from last season and are only going to get better as they get their players back from injury.

Hirving Lozano and Victor Omishen are a deadly duo at the top and very few defenses have been able to limit them from scoring.

Liverpool will be a sure step up in competition but there is no doubt that with the current flow of teams, Napoli will have a shot.

Liverpool is set to make another run at the Champions League title after narrowly losing it to Real Madrid last season.

The Reds are in a shaky spot after starting the Prem with several shaky results but are looking to be back in form as time goes on.

Key player Virgil Van Djik has not been the star defender everyone knew him to be and he will need to improve his play if Liverpool want to keep offenses at bay.

There are no problems with attacking for the Reds, but they have to up their defensive level especially in the Champions League.

Betting Prediction - Take the over on asian total in this game as both teams are very keen on getting to the opposing goalkeeper.
