Barcelona Vs Paris Saint-Germain Final Betting Analysis
Paris Saint-Germain has played as well as Barcelona. We shouldn’t go off form to determine who to back in this match anyhow.
The handicapping key for this game is to determine how you feel PSG plays it. Barcelona has no choice but to be aggressive. Down 3 goals to 1, Barca can’t afford to play it safe. They must go after Paris Saint-Germain from the first kick.
PSG can play a defensive match. But, again, it doesn’t seem to be in their DNA. Mbappe, Kean, and the rest aren’t into taking it easy. They especially don’t like to take it easy versus squads like Barcelona, the supposedly best of the best.
Even if PSG has a defensive game-plan, Mbappe could get a goal or two on the counter attack. Give the chalk a nod. Barcelona has played well against suspect competition, Elche and Osasuna are terrible, while Paris enjoys beating Lionel and his teammates.
