Istanbul Basaksehir host Paris Saint-Germain in a key game in UEFA Champions League Group H on Wednesday at the Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadium. Both sides lost their opening game of the group stages, and the pressure will be on to avoid a second straight loss.

Istanbul Basaksehir Form


Turkish Super Lig champions Istanbul Basaksehir made a poor start to the defence of their title, picking up a single point from their first four games. They failed to score in a trio of 2-0 defeats to Hatayspor, Galatasaray and Karagumruk and a 0-0 draw with Goztepe.

But back-to-back Super Lig wins over Trabzonspor 2-0 away from home and a 5-1 rout of Antalyaspor at the weekend will have steadied the ship for Okan Buruk’s side.

Edin Visca got a double in the win over Antalyaspor and missed a penalty too. The Bosnian was also on the mark in the win over Trabzonspor.

Sandwiched in between the two domestic victories was a 2-0 loss to RB Leipzig as Istanbul Basaksehir made their UEFA Champions League debut a losing one last week.

Istanbul Basaksehir Team News


Istanbul Basaksehir are facing a defensive selection headache with Brazilian full-back Junior Caicara out for the season and deputy Ugur Ucar a doubt with injury. 

Centre back Martin Skrtel limped off at half-time against Antalyaspor and looks set to miss the visit of PSG. Midfielder Nacer Chadli was also taken off at half-time of that game and a late decision will be made on his availability.

Midfielder Azubuike Okechukwu missed the weekend win and may also not be fit enough to return.

PSG Form


Last season's beaten finalists, Paris Saint-Germain suffered a 2-1 defeat at home to Manchester United last week in this year's UEFA Champions League opener.

Marcus Rashford struck the winner for United three minutes from time. A Bruno Fernandes penalty had given United a first-half lead before PSG levelled courtesy of an Anthony Martial own goal.

Thomas Tuchel’s side bounced back in Ligue 1 on Saturday with a 4-0 victory over Dijon. Doubles from Moise Kean and Kylian Mbappe sealed a sixth straight win for PSG in the league. 

PSG Team News


PSG are still hampered by injuries with defenders Juan Bernat and Thilo Kehrer, midfielders Marco Verratti, Leandro Paredes and Idrissa Gueye, and striker Mauro Icardi all ruled out.

There is also a doubt hanging over Julian Draxler's fitness, while reserve goalkeeper Alexandre Letellier is out.

Kean staked his claim for a Champions League start with a brace at the weekend. But he may have to make do with a place on the bench with Angel Di Maria (suspended) and Mbappe (rested) returning to the starting line-up.
