Istanbul Basaksehir hosts Paris Saint-Germain in round 2 of the Champions League group stage. The match will be played on Wednesday, October 28th at Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadium (Istanbul)
In 2020, Istanbul Basaksehir finally won the champion’s title in the Turkish Super League. This guaranteed the team a minimum of six matches in the UEFA Champions League group stage. It would seem that the team should have strengthened after that. However, Okan Buruk's men are not impressive at all. They failed the start of the local championship by falling into the relegation zone. And most importantly, they began their performance in the Champions League with a defeat. A week ago, the Turks lost in the first 20 minutes of the match against RB Leipzig. They tried to hold on, but Angelinho opened the scoring after Kampl's assist already in the 16th minute. Literally in the next attack, the Spanish lateral doubled the score, and the match ended in a 2-0 defeat of the Turks. Further rivals will be even more difficult.

The Parisians managed to gain their best result in the last Eurocup draw. The incredible Bayern Munich stopped them only in the final. However, Neymar and company had chances in that match, but they did not upset Neuer, and Kingsley Coman managed to score. Now PSG had a difficult start. Moreover, they write that Leonardo offended Tuchel because he did not sign Luis Suarez and Rudiger. Perhaps they could help to gain a positive result last week. Then the team lost to Manchester United in Paris. Now this lag needs to be compensated somehow. And the French team is preparing to gain a victory on a foreign pitch. What tactics will the German coach choose for this?
Only recently has the Istanbul project become strong enough to qualify for European cups. PSG has consistently played exclusively in the Champions League for a long time. Therefore, the teams have never met on the football pitch. All the other teams in this group should not only beat Istanbul but also improve their goal difference. So we will bet on the victory of PSG with a -1.5 handicap.
Prediction for the match: Paris Saint-Germain to win with -1.5 handicap
