Why you should back PSG 

The Parisians possess one of the top offensive players on the planet in Kylian Mbappe. The 25-year-old forward leads France’s Ligue 1 with 26 goals and helped PSG capture their third consecutive league title and 10th in 12 seasons. Mbappe also is first in the Champions League with eight goals after registering a brace in the Parisians’ 4-1 victory at Barcelona in the second leg of their quarterfinal tie.

Winger Ousmane Dembele and midfielder Vitinha are tied for second on PSG with two goals apiece in the competition, as both players converted in each leg against Barcelona. The 26-year-old Dembele also is an excellent set-up man as he has assisted on a pair of goals in the UCL and leads Ligue 1 with eight assists – one more than Mbappe. Midfielder Warren Zaire-Emery scored against Dortmund in the group stage and is tied for eighth in the competition with three assists. See which team to pick here.
