It may only be the opening group match in this season’s Champions League, but few would complain if this was to be the final. Despite reaching the final of this competition last season, Liverpool were drawn from the third pot and face PSG, Napoli and Red Star Belgrade as they bid to reach the knock-out stages.
Both teams have made a strong start to their seasons and at the time of writing both have 100% records in the English Premier League and Ligue 1. Liverpool are slowly convincing even their harshest critics that this could be the season they finally win the Premier League. It’s not just that the goals are flowing but their first four league games of the season have seen them concede just once.
Paris St Germain continue to dominate French football and their first four league games have all been won by at least two clear goals with 13 goals scored so far. Their biggest task this season though is to finally reach the latter stages of the Champions League.
