The UEFA Champions League returns tonight, where Paris Saint Germain are ready to take on Juventus at Perc des Princes. At the same time, EPL champion Manchester City will face Sevilla FC. Real Madrid, the current champion of the UCL, will also play tonight against Celtic.
PSG VS Juventus
Paris Saint Germain are one of the top favorites in the UEFA Champions League. Their journey in this tournament will start tonight as they will host the Italian side, Juventus. But Juventus have a great record against The Parisians. PSG never defeated Juventus in their previous eight competitive meetings. However, the home records for PSG are very strong. They have lost only one of their last 30 home games in the group round of the UCL.
PSG manager Christophe Galtier is very relaxed as he has a large squad with no injury issues. The manager also has the deadliest attacking trio, Messi, Neymar, and Mbappe, in his hand. All those three are ready to play tonight.
But Juventus have two major injury issues. Paul Pogba, who re-joined Juventus from Man United in a free transfer, became injured during the training session. Moreover, Angel Di Maria will also miss tonight’s clash, the manager confirmed.
Man City VS Sevilla
Manchester City will travel to Spain to play against the home team, Sevilla FC. The Citizens are in a flying form. Their new signing, Erling Haaland, keeps scoring almost in every game in the EPL. He has already scored 10 goals in six matches only. On the other hand, Sevilla FC are having a difficult time in La Liga. They are yet to win a game in their domestic league.
Manchester City also have several injury crises in their squad. Defender Aymeric Laporte hasn’t recovered yet from a knee injury. Meanwhile, Kyle Walker got a knock during the match against Aston Villa. Jon Stones is also doubtful to play tonight. While speaking to the media about Stones and Walker, City boss Pep Guardiola said, “They are injured. John is not much. Kyle is not much too, but I don’t know if he will be ready for Saturday, or Dortmund or Wolves before the international break.”
