Football: the Champions League returns with the PSG-Juventus clash at the start

Paris Saint-Germain face Juventus of Turin this Tuesday at the opening of the group stage of thehe Champions League which starts earlier than usual due to the World Cup this winter in Qatar.

Paris, led by its trio of stars Mbappé, Messi, Neymar, is considered one of the favorites of this C1, even if coach Christophe Galtier prefers to temper:

“As for quite a few seasons, there are surprises, there are scenarios which are incredible with the emotional lift on matches. That the club has the ambition to win is completely legitimate; that we are favorites in this competition, I don’t think so.”

In front, the Turin Juventus will be deprived of two of its main recruits, the Frenchman Paul Pogba, and the former Parisian, the Argentinian Angel Di Maria. Juventus haven’t won the Champions League since 1996.
