     Anderlecht: Coach change (Recent Form: WWLWWD)

Anderlecht were having disappointing results at the start, so coach Weiler was dismissed and now Hein Vanhaezebrouck is in charge of the team. Anderlecht are in difficult situation in UEFA Champions League, with 0 points and 0 goals scored to date. “It’s going to be very difficult to stay in Europe. Looking at the group realistically it’s between us and Celtic for the third spot. And losing 3-0 has put us in a very tough position. Winning by a bigger margin away to Celtic isn’t likely, therefore we then have to pull off a huge stunt against one of the big two [PSG or Bayern Munich]. Luckily we have to face them both at home, and if we are going to do anything it has to be here. So we’ll do our best, and we certainly haven’t given up hope,” said Vanhaezebrouck. Spajić and Najar are unavailable.   Paris Saint-Germain: Favourites of group B (Recent Form: WWWDWW) PSG seem to be the favourites of group B after defeating Bayern (3:0) a few weeks ago. Now it’s time for away encounter. “We respect every opponent and prepare well for every game. Each match is a different story. The last time we played here, it went very well for us, but that's ancient history now. This season, in the Champions League, we have started well. We won our first two games. That's great but we have another big game now against another very good opponent. We will be looking for the three points. It's important for us to win this match,” said Motta. Thiago Silva is unavailable, several other footballers remain doubtful.   NOWGOAL BETTING VERDICT: In conclusion, I believe that this might be an interesting clash with a couple of goals. Both Anderlecht and PSG are offensive-minded so perhaps this could be an open match with lots of action.   Nowgoal Pick: over 3.25 goals @1.60
