PSG vs JUV Dream11 prediction UEFA Champions League 2022-23
PSG will fancy their chances of picking up a win in their UCL 2022-23 opener against JUV, given their solid start to the season. The hosts are on top of the Ligue 1 table with 16 points and have more than enough firepower to blow away a Juventus team that have made a slow start to their Serie A campaign.
The Old Lady are seventh in the Serie A standings, having claimed nine points from five games. The injury and absence of new signing Paul Pogba hasn’t helped the Italian club’s start to the season, and they will have to do without him against PSG as his return to the team seems a long way off at the moment.
Add to that, the fact that PSG’s deadly attacking trident of Neymar, Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe are brimming with confidence, and there can be only one winner in Paris come Wednesday.
PSG vs JUV Dream11 team tips for UEFA Champions League 2022-23
Top tip: Best forward
Kylian Mbappe will be one of PSG’s most potent attacking threats against Juve as he looks to add to his brace from over the weekend. The young French sensation has already netted seven times in five outings this season and is expected to open his tally in UCL 2022-23 against Juventus, making him a wise pick for your fantasy team.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Listed as a midfielder, picking Neymar in your fantasy team could help you score big from the middle of the park. The Brazilian talisman’s start to the ongoing season is even more impressive than teammate Mbappe. He’s scored nine goals and provided six assists in just seven matches this season, making his inclusion in your fantasy team a no-brainer.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
PSG’s marauding fullback Achraf Hakimi is an easy pick in defence. The attack-minded right-back is sensational bombing forward and can also carry out his defensive duties efficiently. Going forward, he’s already been involved in two assists and a goal this season, demonstrating his ability on the pitch.
Juventus custodian Mattia Perin is unlikely to keep a clean sheet but could see a lot of the action and make saves against PSG’s loaded attack. Perin’s proven to be a fine shot-stopper in recent times and won’t be afraid of facing PSG’s menacing attack, making him a risk worth gambling on in your fantasy team.
PSG vs JUV probable playing XI
