Liverpool – PSG
Liverpool and PSG are facing each other at the Anfield Stadium in the big derby of the day in the Champions League. The draw sent these two teams in Group C of the competition in the company of Napoli and Crvena Zvezda. Let’s take a look.
Obviously these two teams are among the favourites to win the trophy. Liverpool reached the final last season, while PSG have one of the most impressive teams in the world. Last season the French champion was eliminated by Real Madrid in the 1/8-finals, but now the goal is much bigger – to reach the final and win it.
That’s why PSG invested so much in superstars like Neymar and Kylian Mbappe. When you add to the mix players like Gianluigi Buffon, Thiago Silva, Marco Verratti and Edinson Cavani, you can see how strong this team really is. Can it be PSG’s year? We shall wait and see. But surely they have enough tools to do something big in this competition.
Thomas Tuchel is the man who shall do it. The German coach replaced Unai Emery, despite of the fact that Emery won Ligue 1. But this was not enough for PSG’s bosses. The goal in front of Tuchel is to do better in the Champions League.
For Liverpool the goal is also clear. Last season the Reds reached the final, but lost against Real Madrid. Now they will start another run towards their 6th European cup. In the summer the manager Jurgen Klopp made some improvements to his team, so now we shall see Liverpool even stronger than they were last season. The way they started the new campaign in the Premier League is hinting us that this is the case now.
This is our look at the Champions League clash between Liverpool and PSG at the Anfield. We shall expect a really thrilling game.
