Paris Saint Germain did a tremendous job against Real Madrid in the opener. They destroyed their opponents while playing with a lot of absences of key players. Paris Saint Germain will now travel to Turkey, where they will be hosted by Galatasaray on Tuesday. Galatasaray grabbed a point from their trip to Belgium and will now look for at least one more.

Spread: Paris Saint Germain -1.5
Total: 3.25 Goals
Galatasaray played a really hard match on the road against Club Brugge in the opener. The two teams didn’t have a lot of shots on target and engaged in a very physical game. A lot of fouls and yellow cards, but no goals, so the result was a goal-less draw. The Turkish team has not done good in the competition lately, winning just one of their last 16 European fixtures (1-9-6). Moreover, they have won just two of their last 13 European fixtures at home (2-5-6). However, they are undefeated in their last six home matches against French clubs (4-0-2).
On the other hand, Paris Saint Germain did a really good job against Real Madrid in the premiere. They had former Real Madrid midfielder Angel Di Maria in a really good night. He was trying to prove a point against his former side, scoring twice in the first half. After that 0-3 win, Paris Saint Germain have now won six of their last eight premiere matches in the Champions League. The French champions have been eliminated at the round of 16 in each of the past three season. And they were eliminated at the quarter-finals in each of the previous four campaigns. Paris Saint Germain have lost three of their last four matches in Turkey but won by 2-1 in their last trip to this country.
The two teams have met twice in recent years, at the 2001/02 group stage of the competition. They exchanged home wins with clean sheets back then, with Galatasaray winning in this venue by 0-1. The Turks have done a great job against French sides and PSG struggle in Turkey. The French side might be missing some key players again and, if that’s the case, I am tempted to back the hosts here.
Champions League Galatasaray vs Paris Saint Germain Prediction: Galatasaray +1.5 (+101)
