Liverpool will be hosting PSG for a much-anticipated opening round match in the UEFA Champions League.
Liverpool has been in incredible form this season as the Reds have won all of their games this season. Salah and Mane have continued their incredible form and the defense is being well led by Allison and Virgil Van Dijk. Liverpool had a very impressive win over the weekend as they managed to beat Tottenham away from home at White Hart Lane. These performances will ensure that the team is very confident heading into this fixture. This match is set to take place at Anfield which should give Liverpool a boost since the fans always provide terrific support with the atmosphere even greater during Champions League games. Liverpool made the final of this tournament last season and with such a strong start to the season, the team will be very optimistic about this match.
On the other side of the coin, PSG are also unbeaten having won all 5 of their matches. The likes of Neymar and Mbappe are playing exceptionally well and the addition of Buffon seems to have made the defense stronger due to the Italian keeper’s experience. The Champions League is the tournament that PSG will be focussed on this season as Ligue 1 is no challenge for the team from the French capital. That being said, this is a tough opening round fixture since they will be playing a Liverpool side who are in exceptional form. The fact that this match is at Anfield will not help.
This should be a close match since both teams are playing exceptionally well. Neither team has dropped a point all season which means that we will see two teams who are confident and in good form. That being said, I am going to pick Liverpool to win this match. The home ground advantage means a lot in the Champions League and I think the buzzing atmosphere at Anfield will be enough to get the Reds the win.
