Match Preview of PSG vs Benfica

The French champions will play Benfica at home on Tuesday evening lookin to firmly establish their lead in Group H. On seven points, the French giants sit atop the section, tied with second placed Benfica, having played out a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture last week.

Danilo Pereira's own goal in Lisbon equalized the score and the game ended 1-1 after Lionel Messi gave PSG the lead 22 minutes into the match. After victories over Juventus and Maccabi Haifa, the capital giants earned seven points with their draw with Benfica, which left them top of Group H, though level with their opponents.

PSG may advance to the knockout round with two games to spare if they win this match, and it would be a huge shock if they can't. The Portuguese team reached the quarter-finals of last season's Champions League before losing to Liverpool, and they are in good shape to advance to the knockout stages this season.

Having drawn 1-1 with PSG last week, they are confident the're strong enough to reach the knokout stage, and another positive result in this game will pave the way to their next match with Juventus on October 25.

PSG and fans have a sad news that is, PSG were missing Messi against Reims due to the calf problem that he picked up in the latter stages of the clash with Benfica, and the Argentine is unlikely to be risked here.

PSG possible starting lineup: Donnarumma; Ramos, Marquinhos, Danilo; Hakimi, Vitinha, Verratti, Bernat; Sarabia, Mbappe, Neymar

Benfica possible starting lineup:Vlachodimos; Bah, Silva, Otamendi, Grimaldo; Florentino, Fernandez; Neres, Rafa, Mario; Ramos

Who will win the match?

We say: Paris Saint-Germain 2-1 Benfica.The French champions's home advantage could prove crucial, though, so we are backing them to edge a tight match to move onto 10 points.
