Wednesday night at the Parc des Princes, Paris Saint-Germain hosts Real Sociedad for the first leg of their round of 16 Champions League quarterfinals, resuming their pursuit of the elusive trophy.

Last weekend, in Ligue 1, Les Parisiens rallied from behind to upset Lille 3-1 at home, while in La Liga, the Txuri-Urdin were shocked to lose 1-0 at home to Osasuna.

Paris and Real Sociedad: Previous Games 

Real Sociedad, a Spanish team consistent in European tournaments for almost ten years and now sits seventh in La Liga, will be their opponent in the quarterfinals. While Real Sociedad’s loss to Osasun in the previous round of the domestic championship in San Sebastian may indicate that the club isn’t quite ready to focus on the Champions League and its upcoming matches against PSG, it’s important to remember that this is still a chance for the club to achieve its most tremendous success to date. The fact that Real Sociedad have not lost one of their last sixteen away games across all competitions is pretty noteworthy.

Probable Paris Lineup

Donnarumma; Hakimi, Danilo, Marquinhos, Hernandez; Urgate, Zaire-Emery; Dembele, Asensio, Kolo Muani; Mbappe

Probable Real Sociedad Lineup

Remiro; Traore, Zubeldia, Le Normand, Galan; Merino, Zubimendi, Mendez; Kubo, Sadiq, Barrenetxea

Betting tips: Paris x Real Sociedad

Check out our predictions of the day for Paris vs Real Sociedad

Prediction 1: Paris x Real Sociedad / Paris to win

PSG have lost goals in each of their past five matches. Thus, Real Sociedad will be looking to snap their four-game goal drought in what is sure to be a closely contested battle.

Nevertheless, with star player Kylian Mbappe back in action, PSG will be considered heavy favourites to win and have the offensive firepower to gain a vital first-leg lead.

Prediction 2: Paris x Real Sociedad / Both teams to score

No matter how much PSG is favoured, Real Sociedad will be there, waiting to surprise PSG in this leg and the whole battle. Although PSG had won 15 of their 17 home matches before this one, they still let in at least one goal in each of their past eight games. Sociedad might take advantage of the French club’s shaky defence to get a crucial goal before the return meeting in Spain. PSG to win and teams to score are like good bets, although the second one seems more likely.

Prediction 3: Paris x Real Sociedad /  Mbappe to score

Kylian Mbappé of Paris Saint-Germain has scored seven goals in his previous five games in the UEFA Champions League, all of which have been against teams from Spain. Actually, in February 2021 (for PSG in the round of 16), Mbappé scored a hat trick against Barcelona, becoming the last player to do it in the competition’s knockout rounds and against a Spanish team.
