    In the Group A Champions League match between Arsenal vs PSG, it is going to decide which team finishes in top place, with The Gunners are the slight favorites to win on Wednesday night. They have the home advantage and have been in excellent form for most of the season.

    When the two teams were drawn against each other they were both the hot favorites to advance to the next stage of the competition. They have both lived up to expectations with them having already qualified for the last 16. In the first match played in Paris, the teams drew 1-1 and it is the only points that either club have dropped so far in the group.

    With the winners of the group on paper having an easier route to the final, both teams will be up for the battle to gain the edge. With both teams on the same points, the winning will top the group. If the match is drawn then PSG needs the score to be 2-2 or greater due to away goals counting if they end up on the same points.

    With the outcome of the other groups still to be decided finishing top spot may backfire depending on the results of the group matches. There is a real possibility that either one may have to face Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid or Atletico Madrid if they do win the group so coming second may actually end up an easier option depending on the draw. The Gunners have a slight advantage in the next stages due to clubs from the same country not been able to face each other.

    PSG will be hoping that Edinson Cavani fine form this campaign continues. He is now the leading goal scorer in the French Ligue One on 11 goals. If the Gunners are going to get the victory they will need to keep him quiet.

    The Gunners are the favorites with football gambling websites and manager Arsene Wenger will be hoping Alexis Sánchez provides the cutting edge they need to get the result. So far the player has been on fire and PSG will need to stop his threat if they are going to get the victory to top the group.

    All the bookmakers agree that Arsenal will get the win and should then go on to finish in top place. They have a more difficult last fixture in the group compared to PSG as the face Basel away from home. Paris Saint-Germain in their last match is at home against Ludogorets.

    Arsenal vs Paris Saint Germain Prediction

    With the Gunners been at home and fantastic form so far this campaign, I think that they will get the result they need. Arsene Wenger will be keen to keep the match as tight as possible so that PSG do not have the chance of snatching a high scoring which would take the French giants above them. I think that the match will finish 1-0 to Arsenal and they will end up topping Group A.
