New European campaign, new ambitions for Paris Saint-Germain. Big opponents or affordable group?
Eliminated in the round of 16 last season – 3-2 loss on aggregate against Real Madrid – PSG must do better this year. And it starts in the group stage. The capital club has cleaned up by changing coaches and sorting out its workforce with one goal in mind: to win the Champions League. If PSG seem far above their opponents in Ligue 1, the supporters are now demanding a title on a European scale.

In the worst case scenario, we are talking about a pool made up of Liverpool, Borussia Dortmund and PSV Eindhoven or Celtic Glasgow.
