Match Preview

However, the Champions League continues to elude the Parisians, with their 1-0 defeat to Bayern Munich in the final in 2020 the closest they have come to lifting Europe's elite competition for the first time. Last season, they were knocked out by Real Madrid at the last-16 stage despite holding a 2-0 aggregate lead with only half an hour remaining at the Bernabeu Stadium, but Karim Benzema's quick-fire hat-trick turned the tie on its head in yet another collapse at the highest level from PSG. Christophe Galtier has succeeded Mauricio Pochettino in the dugout this summer, and the former Lille boss looks to have made PSG a more balanced unit already having switched to a 3-5-2 formation during the early weeks of his tenure. 

Five wins and one draw - including a comfortable 3-0 win away to Nantes at the weekend - has seen them move top of Ligue 1, ahead of Marseille on goal difference. As with any PSG manager in recent times, though, it will be results and progress in the Champions League where Galtier is most heavily scrutinised. With Maccabi Haifa, Benfica and forthcoming opponents Juventus drawn alongside them in Group H, progressing to the knockout stages for an 11th successive season should not be a major issue, but it is thereafter where the real challenge will begin.
