Napoli and Paris Saint-Germain are going to face-off against each other at the Stadio San Paolo, as the hosts hope to maintain a 3-game lossless streak in the Champions League.
The Partenopei currently trail Liverpool by 1 point, as they are the only unbeaten team in Group C. After a slow start, and an unexpected scoreless draw with Red Star Belgrade at the Rajko Mitic Stadium, the Italian giants have wrapped up a decisive 1-0 triumph over the Merseysiders at home. In the previous encounter with the reigning Ligue 1 champions, Carlo Ancelotti’s players have dropped a 1-goal lead in the final seconds of the game, which could prove crucial in their European quest this year. These two goals at Parc des Princes are also the only ones Napoli allowed in the Champions League so far, but they’ve only bagged three in the process.
On the other hand, the Parisians have to leave Naples with some points in their pocket if looking to keep pace with Liverpool. Although they are named among the top 3 favorites to lift the prominent trophy, the French heavyweights are struggling in the Champions League. PSG have shot themselves in the foot by allowing Roberto Firmino to bring the last-minute victory to the Reds at Anfield on the opening matchday. Although Thomas Tuchel’s players humiliated Red Star at home by six goals to one, they’ve failed to defeat Napoli in Paris. However, with ten goals scored, Paris Saint-Germain have the best goalscoring record in the Europe most elite club competition along with Barcelona.
