Liverpool vs PSG
KICK OFF: TUESDAY 18th Sept 2018 | 21:00 CET
CHAMPIONS LEAGUE, Group C | ANFIELD
Can we expect a high scoring encounter when Liverpool host PSG in their Champions League 2018 -2019 Group C Clash?
Both teams boast some of the most admirable talents in Europe, so the match has the potential to be an explosive all-action affair.
Liverpool has moved on from their Champions League final loss, and they will be looking to kick off the new campaign in style. With the additions of Keita, Fabinho and Shaqiri to last year’s squad, Liverpool are now in great shape with strength in depth where it was needed most. Liverpool’s front three of Mane, Firmino and Mane were the most feared trident in Europe last term, and they’ve already made their marks in the league. The Reds high-pressing style, pace, and slick passing can see them overcome the Parisians.
PSG travel to Anfield for the first time and they bring along high-profile names; Neymar, Cavani, and Mbappe. Manager Thomas Tuchel has an excellent eye for the game, and he usually employs different formations depending on the challenge. He will surely set his side to compete in the best way possible.
The Reds backline is solid, having just conceded one goal so far this season. PSG are leaking goals on the other hand. A Liverpool win is possible if they can keep it tight at the back.
