PSG have made a perfect start to the Champions League this season. Abused at half-time against Juve and in Haifa, the club emerged from the capital with a win each. This allows him to present himself as the leader of Pool H on the Benfica lawn. A place he will share with his Portuguese hosts tomorrow night as both teams have 6 points on goal difference. The clash is promising as the Lisboners have been in good shape since the start of the season. Like the Parisians, they have yet to experience defeat.
To say that Benfica will undoubtedly be PSG’s biggest opponent in this pool is just one more step away. “It’s a team that hasn’t been beaten since the start of the season. It is interesting to look at, well organized. There is individual quality and collective strength. As the games have been developing since the start of the season and we hear about the draw, we follow this team and I’m not surprised they are at this level. Benfica can claim to be the favorites in this group.Galtier even assures, as if he wanted to reject the favorite status.
Galtier fears Benfica
Before the press on the eve of the game (to follow with live commentary on our website), Christophe Galtier measures the difficulty in front of him. He expects a great atmosphere in a stadium where no French club has ever won. “We are calm. We face an unbeaten opponent in an extraordinary atmosphere. I have players with a lot of experience and experience. We have to be able to play well, we have the qualities to get rid of the pressure from the crowd and the opponent.convinces the coach.
In his opinion, we have to expect great intensity from Roger Schmidt’s men right from the start.“We have to be able to play under pressure. This team will get us up, it’s a team that, like their coach, puts a lot of pressure on the first few raises. We’ll have to avoid clearing the ball and we’ll have to be a lot more efficient than we are at the moment. warns the French coach, like a warning to his players, too volatile for him.
