The PSG midfielder Marco Verratti is warming up for the match.  Next up, Anderlecht. Champions League group stage action will continue on Wednesday with a number of games, including Barcelona v Olympiakos, Benfica v Manchester United and Anderlecht v PSG.

Paris Saint-Germain has been one of the biggest stories of Champions League so far, as they have cut through their group stage play like a buzzsaw.

PSG easily handled Celtic in their first Champions League match of the year, defeating the Scottish side 5-0.

It was their 3-0 drubbing of Bayern Munich at home, however, that established the club as one of the top teams to beat this year. Everyone knew that PSG would be massively talented coming into this season, though nobody was prepared for how quickly the likes of Neymar and Mbappe would gel. The result? Eight goals for and zero against in their first two Champions League games of the season, and Wednesday is looking to be another laugher as well.

Here are the betting odds for Wednesday's game:

Anderlecht, 21.00
Draw, 8.00
PSG, 1.16

As you can see, Anderlecht would need some sort of divine intervention to win on Wednesday, as they simply don't have the tools to stop the vaunted PSG attack.

Bookmakers are expecting an offensive onslaught on Wednesday, as the over/under (2.5 goals) is set at 2.5, with the over currently trading for 1.28.


According to the latest odds, PSG has the second best chance to win Champions League this year. Here are the top five teams, based on their odds of winning:

Real Madrid, 5.25
PSG, 5.50
Man City, 7.00
Barcelona, 7.50
Bayern Munich, 8.50

With their dominance performance so far, the likes of Real Madrid and Man City are going to have their hands full with Neymar and company at PSG.
