The almighty PSG travels to Belgium to face Anderlecht at the Constant Vanden Stock, on a match of the 3rd round of this Group B of the Champions League.
Anderlecht currently is in last place of this group B, having been unable to get any points so far.
If on the first round their responsibility to win was small, since they were naturally defeated 3-0 at the Allianz Arena, on the following round, against Celtic, which is their direct opponent on the fight for the 3rd place of this group, that grants access to the Europa League, they were smashed 3-0 in front of their fans.
This start of the season has shown an Anderlecht a bit below their usual standards, especially on the Belgian league, where they usually are the stronger title contender, but where they have been a bit inconsistent, sitting in 5th place, 9 points behind leaders Brugge.
On the first 10 rounds of the Jupiler League, they have already conceded 13 goals, averaging 1.3 goals conceded/match. The Belgian manager Hein Vanhaezebrouck will not be able to count with the defender Spajic and the midfielder Najar.
PSG, as we all know, has been improving their squad with quality players, year after year, but this time, with the arrivals of Neymar, Mbappé and Dani Alves, they have a new status, especially on the European context.
Therefore, it is natural for us to see this fantastic start of the season the Parisian team had, having won 11 out of the 12 official matches they played so far.
Internally, they are leading the French Ligue 1 with a 6-point advantage over Monaco, while in the Champions League, they “took care” of Bayern München and Celtic with an 8-0 aggregate.
For this match Unai Emery shouldn’t be able to count with Thiago Silva, Verrati, Thiago Motta and Kurzawa. However, he will have the return of the Uruguayan striker Cavani to the starting XI.
