This will be a great match up to watch between the two teams in Group C to walk away with a win in the first game of Champions League play.
“There is a big difference compared to last year because this year all the other teams have seen PSG’s results and the players we have recruited,” striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic said, via ESPN FC.
“After a year in the Champions League the club has more experience. We must show when we’re good and we will do everything to beat Benfica and prove we are challengers for the trophy.”
Benfica is also brimming with confidence ahead of the match.
“No-one doubts that PSG is one of the teams with the most quality at an individual level in Europe, especially in attack,” Benfica coach Jorge Jesus said. “But that does not take away our hope and confidence. We will go to Paris to score goals. We are improving all the time and hopefully we will take it to the next level.”
