PSG

  • Amid the speculation off Neymar leaving, the Brazilian has responded with three goals in three 1-0 victories in Ligue 1 so far this season.
  • Mbappe returned to the squad after missing several matches through injury but he may be restricted to another appearance off the bench.

THE PREDICTION

After their magnificent 3-0 win over Real Madrid on matchday one, PSG will be motivated to follow that up with another victory in Istanbul. Galatasaray have assembled a talented team on paper, but they are not firing right now and PSG should be capable of picking up another victory here.
