French giants Paris Saint Germain and Italian powerhouse AC Milan will lock horns in a mouthwatering UEFA Champions League Group F match that will be staged at the Parc des Prince in Paris, France on Wednesday October 25.
PSG eased past Dortmund in match day one with a 2-0 score line but later suffered a stunning 4-1 defeat away to a high-flying Newcastle United.
As a result, the Parisiens find themselves trailing a Newcastle side who have defied the odds so far to top group F with four points (1W 1D).
On the other hand, seven-time winners Milan sit third in the tough group with two points behind PSG and will be gunning to record their very first victory in the competition this season when they make the away trip.
The Rossoneri played to a barren draw with Newcastle in the opening match before registering the same result against Dortmund who currently sit bottom of the pile on one point.
Will AC Milan finally find the back of the net after failing to score in their last four UEFA Champions League matches, or will PSG bounce back from the humiliating defeat at the hands of Newcastle United?

PSG vs AC Milan Team News
Italian shot stopper Gianluigi Donnarumma is set to meet his former employers for the first time since signing a contract with PSG.
Luis Enrique is likely to stick with the front line of Kylian Mbappe, Ousmane Dembele and Randal Kolo Muani although they failed to do the job against Newcastle United earlier this month.
However, the former Spain manager will be without Nuno Mendes, and Presnel Kimpembe who are both nursing injuries.
Marco Asensio’s involvement is also not guaranteed since the ex-Real Madrid forward is currently recovering from a foot problem.
French number one Mike Maignan will return to Milan’s first eleven after missing Sunday’s match against Juventus due to suspension.
However, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Samuel Chukwueze, Ismael Bennacer and Marco Sportiello are all expected to miss the game.
Possible PSG Starting Lineup
Donnarumma, Hakimi, Skriniar, Marquinhos, Hernandez, Vitinha, Zaire-Emery, Ugarte, Dembele, Muani, Mbappe

PSG vs AC Milan Head-To-Head
Milan and PSG have not had an opportunity to test each other since the 2000/2001 Champions League season.
Regardless, PSG have had a good run over Italian opponents registering a win in their three last encounters, including beating Juve twice in the group stage last season.
On the other hand, the Rossoneri have only lost three of their last 16 meetings with French clubs in the tournament.
Since the 1994/1995 season, PSG and Milan have met each other four times in the Champions League with the former picking up two wins. The other two matches ended in a 1-1 draw.

PSG vs AC Milan Current Form
It is fair to say that Milan has a decent form ahead of the crunch tie, only losing a single match in their recent seven games in all competitions. In addition, the Rossoneri are undefeated in three away matches (one draw, two wins).
Meanwhile, PSG have made the Parc des Princes a fortress in the group stage since 2011. The multiple Ligue 1 winners have won 27 of their last 34 games, losing only once to Manchester United in 2020.
In their recent five matches in competitions, PSG have won three, lost once and picked up a draw. Like the Parisians, Milan have also achieved a similar outcome.

PSG vs AC Milan Prediction
Aside from the head-to-head statistics, it is difficult to break Milan down during big games. Therefore, even with PSG’s razor-sharp attack, it would not be easy for them to score more than thrice.
But having lost heavily last time out, PSG will come out guns blazing in search of a win to get back to winning ways.
