The Magpies have been in good form recently, winning four of their last five matches in all competitions. Howe’s in-form team ended September in magnificent fashion with nine goals across 180 minutes of football .
After seven matchdays played in the Ligue 1, the Parisians have lost one and drawn three already. Their visit to St. James Park will be the first time since 2003 that there will be a match at Newcastle’s home ground. Even though PSG have had a mix start in the French league, they won their first group match against Borussia Dortmund, they have the better attack, and they will look to exploit Newcastle’s weaknesses.
