PSG to score a goal in the first half
Milan missed out on scoring against PSG in their last meeting. Even with 11 attempts at the goal, they found it challenging to create scoring chances, which is a definite worry for the team. Regrettably, Simon Kjaer, Samuel Chukwueze, Marco Sportiello, and Ismael Bennacer are sidelined due to injuries, while Christian Pulisic and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are uncertain to play.
Giroud, who has contributed a total of 9 goals and assists, is the player worth keeping an eye on in the game.
Winger Pulisic is doubtful to start for Milan.
Predicted Lineup: Maignan, Calabria, Kalulu, Tomori, Hernández, Musah, Krunic, Reijnders, Leao, Giroud, Luka Romero
Important players like Keylor Navas, Sergio Rico, Nuno Mendes, Marco Asensio, and Marquinhos are all dealing with injuries, which could pose a major challenge for PSG in the upcoming match. However, there's a silver lining as Presnel Kimpembe has returned to training.
K Mbappe has been a standout player, contributing significantly with a total of 13 goals and assists in the attacking department. He's definitely a player worth keeping an eye on in this game.
Ousmane Dembele is expected to start for PSG.
Predicted Lineup: Donnarumma, Hakimi, Pereira, Skriniar, Hernández, Barcola, Zaire-Emery, Ruiz, Lee, Kylian Mbappé, Ramos
Paris Saint-Germain is currently in outstanding form, and much of the credit goes to their dynamic duo of K. Mbappe and Dembele. K. Mbappe boasts an impressive 41.7% shots-on-target rate, while Dembele has a 25% rate, making them a formidable attacking force that can trouble any opponent. They are the primary threats Milan needs to watch out for. Additionally, PSG's average possession of 70% suggests they will likely control the game.
However, let's not underestimate Milan on their best days. Giroud, with a solid 26.7% shots-on-target rate, and their goalkeeper Maignan, who has made an impressive 22 saves, will certainly present a challenge for PSG. Nevertheless, PSG possesses a more talented squad and tactical prowess, making them the favorites to win this thrilling encounter.
