Paris Saint-Germain seeks to take advantage of the decline in Leipzig’s results and to claim its second victory in the Champions League, in the third round of the most glorious cups and for the eighth group account.

After a humiliating defeat in England at the hands of Manchester United 0-5 in the previous round, then relinquished the top of the German league in favor of Bayern Munich, the defending champion by losing to Borussia Monchengladbach 0-1, Leipzig faces his guest Paris Saint-Germain in a shaky mood, which strengthens The latter’s chance to achieve his second success in a row.

Despite these two losses, no one can point the finger at coach Julian Nagelsmann, who led the team to the semi-finals of last season in his second participation before the end of the wonderful journey at the hands of St. Germain in particular (0 – 3), which makes Wednesday’s match an opportunity for revenge From the Parisian club that won the last round at Turkish host Basaksehir 2 – 0.

For his part, United is a guest at Basaksehir in an unenviable position after its disappointing results continued at home this season by losing Sunday in the domestic league to Arsenal (0-1) for the first time in “Old Trafford” since 2006.

And the Norwegian coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may breathe a sigh of relief that Wednesday’s match is far from “Old Trafford”, in which he won this season alone in all competitions during the previous round against Leipzig.

In Group E, Lazio, the Italian, returning to participate in the competition for the first time since the 2007-2008 season, and the Belgian Club Brugge are looking to stick to the lead and win the seventh point, when the first guest arrives at Zenit Saint Petersburg, Russia (no points), while the second faces its guest.
