Newcastle vs PSG prediction, odds, betting tips and best bets for Champions League match

For the first time since the 2002/03 season, St James’ Park will host a group-stage Champions League match as Newcastle United welcome French champions Paris Saint-Germain to the north-east of England.

In that campaign two decades ago, the Magpies finished second in their group — a feat that they’ll be trying to emulate this time around after a solid 0-0 draw at San Siro against AC Milan on matchday one gave them a solid platform upon which to build.

That said, this latest visit of PSG will prove an even more difficult proposition. Blessed with some of the greatest players in world football, the Parisians make their first competitive trip to Newcastle in relatively poor form by their usual standards. 

A drab 0-0 stalemate with Ligue 1 minnows Clermont Foot last time out hardly came as ideal preparation, but they still possess Kylian Mbappe, who remains in stunning goalscoring form this campaign and could prove the star man again in this latest outing.

Newcastle vs PSG best bet

  • Pick: Kylian Mbappe to score first
  • Odds: +350 (BetMGM)

Normally, we go for a selection with smaller odds for our best bet, but given his form so far this season, it’s difficult to look past Kylian Mbappe in this Champions League clash.

The France star has already netted eight goals this campaign across seven competitive matches for the Parisians and we all know at this point that no player in the world loves the biggest stage as much as the 24-year-old.

He may find the going tough against Newcastle right-back Kieran Trippier, who has plenty of experience on his side, but as Mbappe has scored the opener in three fixtures already in 2023/24, we fancy him to do the same at St James’ Park.

If you want to pick Mbappe to score multiple goals against the Premier League side, BetMGM are offering that selection at +600.

Newcastle vs PSG flier bet

  • Pick: PSG to win both halves
  • Odds: +700 (BetMGM)

For this pick, we’re banking on PSG to come flying out of the gates at St James’ Park and catch Newcastle cold in front of a packed-out home crowd.

In truth, Newcastle have looked solid at home of late, beating Burnley and Manchester City in their prior two outings, but we believe that this fixture will play out differently.

At the San Siro on matchday one, the Magpies had to seriously cling on for a point and, given PSG’s talented front line, they might not be afforded the same chance here, especially if Mbappe is firing on all cylinders.

As a result, we’ve picked PSG to win both halves at +700, which seems like really good value for a selection that isn’t too difficult to see happen. For reference, they managed exactly that in a 4-0 win over Marseille recently.
