Paris Saint-Germain will start the pursuit of its maiden Champions League title yet again when it hosts Juventus at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday.

Lionel Messi – having moved to PSG last year – will try and find success, close to what he had with Barcelona (his former side) in his second UCL season with the Parisiens.

PSG had come closest to winning the Champions League in 2020 when it lost to Bayern Munich.

This time, with Neymar, Messi and Kylian Mbappe, all fit and leading the attack, PSG will try and go beyond the heartbreak two years ago, starting September 6, 2022.

Juventus, on the other hand, has not played in the final for five years now. Its manager then (in 2016-17) – Massimiliano Allegri – is back in the dugout. However, the side was eliminated in a shock defeat to Villarreal last year.

This time, the Old Lady of Turin will try and improve on its fortunes, starting its campaign in Paris, France.
