Live streaming Liverpool vs PSG Eufa championship on 19 september 2018. First match today.
Combined, Liverpool and PSG scored a total of 48 goals in the 2017/18 CL group stage and were the highest scorers that stage by some distance. Here, they meet for the first time since the 1996/97 Cup Winners Cup – a tie which PSG negotiated 4-2 on aggregate.
In strict terms of Champions League (CL) progression, PSG’s outright CL performances have worsened, with the club only reaching the last-16 in the past two years, after previously reaching the quarter-finals for four years running. Nonetheless, they are amongst the frontrunners to be a CL finalist this time round.
Liverpool’s total of 41 goals en-route to their 2018 CL final appearance, was comfortably the highest attained by any side in last season’s competition. Each of Liverpool’s last three CL games have produced over 3.5 goals, as did four out of Liverpool’s six group stage matches last season.
Though dominant at home, PSG appear to have a mental block against English teams in European competition, with a poor European record of: W4, D5, L9, against them. However, Liverpool’s home CL record against group stage teams since 2002/03 with a higher coefficient, reads at a paltry: W0, D2, L2.
Players to watch: Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino has scored in his last two competitive outings.
