None of the guests’ last 15 fixtures have resulted in draws, but you can get odds of 27/4 (7.75) on them taking this one into extra-time.

Team News

Kylian Mbappe and Thiago Silva are unlikely to return to fitness in time for this clash, while new signing Lassana Diarra is also short of match practice and will not be involved.

The home crowd are expecting to see a debut for Diafra Sakho, who joined from West Ham on Monday.

Mbappe’s absence should not prove too problematic for Unai Emery’s men, who have scored 14 times in just their last three visits to this stadium - with the two most recent of those taking place since the middle of December alone.

They are not the only side to have some joy away to Les Rouges et Noirs, who have conceded 17 goals in their previous six home matches.

Tips and Predictions

All in all, odds of 21/20 (2.05) are not to be missed on PSG sailing through to the final by winning by three goals or more for the sixth game in seven against Rennes.
