A ravishing clash between two European heavyweights is set for the opening day of the 2022-23 Champions League group stage, as Juventus travel to Paris Saint-Germain at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday evening.

Two-time European champions Juve are looking to return to the continent’s elite after falling down the pecking order in recent seasons. After winning nine consecutive Serie A titles between 2012 and 2020, the Old Lady of Turin has placed fourth back-to-back and has not progressed beyond the quarter-finals of the Champions League since the 2016-17 season.

Both Milan clubs appear to have progressed beyond them from a domestic perspective over the past few campaigns and a mixed start this season has resulted in two wins and three draws in five Serie A matches, making them big underdogs in Paris.

For PSG, the quest is simple: finally deliver that elusive Champions League trophy. They have built an all-star team thanks to Qatar Sports Investments’ endless money since their takeover in 2011, and the 24 goals they have scored in six Ligue 1 matches this year show a formidable attack – with Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe – clicks into gear nicely.

Here’s everything you need to know for the opening match of the group stage.

Team news

PSG have only a few injury concerns as Julian Draxler and Timothee Pembele have knee problems, while Vitinha has doubts after he suffered a blow over the weekend. The rest of the squad is at the disposal of Christophe Galtier and weekend substitutes Sergio Ramos, Neymar, Nuno Mendes and Renato Sanches are ready to return to base.

Juventus, on the other hand, has a number of injuries and could travel to Paris without Paul Pogba, Adrien Rabiot, Wojciech Szczesny, Marley Ake, Kaio Jorge and Federico Chiesa. Mattia Perin replaces Szczesny in goal, while Leonardo Bonucci is likely to return to the lineup as centre-back, moving Danilo to right-back, and Dusan Vlahovic could get the nod to Arkadiusz Milik at the top.
