LIVE : PSG vs Benfica
A replay of last week’s fixture, PSG and Benfica will again face each other with the aim of moving to the top of Group H with a clear point advantage.
Currently, both teams have seven points but PSG sits at first place by virtue of more goals scored. In the previous meeting, Lionel Messi got Paris ahead in the match before a Danilo Pereira own goal rescued a point for the Lisbon-based club.
Messi will be out of action this time as he still recovers a calf injury. The same injury ruled him out of the weekend trip to Reims where PSG settled for a goalless draw. This was the first match that the Argentine missed this season, as well as the first time Paris failed to score.
Benfica continued its dominance Primeira Liga with a 4-2 win over Rio Ave. It sits top of the table with 25 points from nine matches.
