Newcastle team news

The injury list is absolutely huge for Eddie Howe. What’s worse, a lot of his key players are out for a sustained period of time.

For this match, Sandro Tonali (suspension), Sven Botman (injury), Callum Wilson (injury), Dan Burn (injury), Elliot Anderson (injury), Joe Willock (injury), Harvey Barnes (injury), Jacob Murphy (injury) and Matt Targett (injury) are all ruled out.

Further to this, there is a minor doubt for Eddie Howe. Important midfielder Sean Longstaff missed the last game but he hopes to be fit in time for this match.

PSG team news

The home team haven’t had the best injury luck this season either. It was confirmed a few days ago that Marquinhos would miss this match after an injury on international break. He joins the list of ruled out players including Warren Zaire-Emery (injury), Marco Asensio (injury), Nuno Mendes (injury), Presnel Kimpembe (injury) and Danilo Pereira (injury).

PSG vs Newcastle score prediction

I hate to say it, but I can’t see anything other than a PSG win. Their attack will be too strong for our depleted defence. A loss would set us back certainly, but we’ll have to push for that third place spot to get a runout in the Europa League. I predict: PSG 3-1 Newcastle.
