Christophe Galtier, the head coach of Paris Saint-Germain, believes that his group will win the UEFA Champions League this year.
PSG, according to Galtier, is “extremely close” to winning the Champions League.
PSG has never previously won the UEFA Champions League.
With their attacking trio of Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, and Neymar, the French Ligue 1 champions are among the favorites to win the Europe’s premier division trophy this season.
Galtier stated the following during his pre-game news conference prior to PSG’s Champions League match against Juventus on Wednesday night (via canal-supporters):
“There’s a lot of expectation around Paris Saint-Germain, in France and in Europe, which is normal when you see how our workforce is made up. We have world-class players with a lot of experience, a lot of experience.
“It’s a trophy that is very difficult to win. Sometimes matches are irrational with twists and turns. PSG is very close to winning the trophy. We hope it is this year, but it did not come down to much a few seasons ago.
“There is a lot of hope, a lot of expectation, but our club is doing everything possible to win this magnificent trophy one day.”
Meanwhile, fixtures for champions league are: Real Madrid vs Celtic, Shakhtar Donetsk vs RB Leipzig, AC Milan vs Red Bull Salzburg, Chelsea vs Dinamo Zagreb, FC Copenhagen vs Borussia Dortmund,Juventus vs Paris Saint-Germain, Maccabi Haifa vs Benfica, Manchester City vs Sevilla
