The last Liverpool slipped 0: 2 to Salzburg-Bewinger Red Star Belgrade. In the English Premier League, he continues to run for last year's finalists, but fine: ten wins and three draws in 13 rounds allow the “red” to travel with a wide chest to Paris. If the British, who scored six points, win in the French capital, the ascent will be perfect. If Napoli (six) also wins against Belgrade (four), PSG (five) will remove the contender for the title before the final group day of the match.
For Thomas Tuchela, who was obliged to work in the summer, he could already be closer to his coaching service. Although the club in the French league 1 after 14 rounds, without losing points, surpasses the leader, but for the Qatari owner it is especially great in the premier class. Last year, he was for PSG in round 16 against the Real Madrid serial winner.
Hope for Neymar and Mbappa
In the Parc des Princes, recently wounded superstars Neymar and Kilian Mbappé should at least help avoid the threat of withdrawal. “I think they can play. Every day everything is getting better, ”said Tuchel on the weekend about the health of the Brazilian and world champion in the world.
Liverpool, in the first match of the first stage of the September victory with the score 3: 2, relies on his attacking trio Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane – and faith in the team. Only five goals conceded in 13 league matches reflect defensive stability. “Everything we do, we do together,” said Mana. PSG is a tough piece, therefore a fast-paced ex-Salzburg. "But everything is possible with us."
Dortmund and Atletico before the promotion
In group A, the places for promotion are almost certainly distributed to Borussia Dortmund and Atletico Madrid. Both are held at nine points and can win every fourth win in the fifth game in the home games against Club Brugge and Monaco. For a duet there will be enough draws.
After BVB lost the first chance 2-1 at Atletico three weeks ago, they want to use the second one. Avoid a shaky match in the finals on December 11 in Monaco. “It would be important for us to close this case,” said Captain Marco Reus. Memories of the first match in Belgium further enhance feelings. Only fortunately, the Germans won with a score of 1: 0 thanks to the late turn of Christian Pulisic. “Bruges is an unpleasant adversary. “We had a lot of problems,” said Reus, but he referred to the progress of the Bundesliga, which was still an invincible leader. "We are one, two steps further than then."
To the delight of coach Lucien Favre, the concerns of the staff are limited. With the exception of the recovering Marcel Schmelzer, all professionals are available. It is hard to imagine that the Swiss coach will save several stars, given the importance of the game. “Superjoker” Paco Alcácer is back in the starting lineup, let Favre open: “He hasn’t played much in Barcelona for two years. That is why he needs time.
"Schalke" hopes for a "milestone"
In group D “Schalke 04 ″ may early start promotion. “For us it will be an important milestone,” said German coach Domenico Tedesco before the visit to the front runner Porto. "We want to go into the knockout round, because we have invested a lot in the Champions League." If Galatasaray Istanbul has not previously won in Lok-Moscow, the progress of Schalke and Porto will be determined even before the start of the match.
In 5: 2 against 1. FC Nuremberg earned in the Bundesliga club players of the team ÖFB Alessandro Schöpf and confidence Guido Burgstaller. “It’s good to win more than one or two goals,” said Stephen Scribsky, who tied the double in his debut in the starting XI. The 26-year-old could also storm in Porto on the side of the Burgstallers. He was also highly appreciated by the Austrian, who also met: "For what we played together for the first time, it worked out well."
Tottenham can overtake Inter
In Group B, Barcelona has already gained ten points, followed by Inter (seven) and Tottenham Hotspur (four) in second place. The English side, which lost 2-1 in Milan, is under much greater pressure on Wembley, and the Italians may well live in glasses before the final home game against PSV Eindhoven (in one point).
