Paris SG – Juventus | 06/09/2022 CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

Paris Saint-Germain take on Juventus in the Champions League on Tuesday. Surprisingly, these two European giants have not faced each other in a competitive match since Juventus ran out 9-2 aggregate winners in the 1996 UEFA Super Cup.

Parc des Princes is set for arguably the pick of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) opening round as PSG welcome Juventus in what could be a classic. We could be in for a quick start if recent seasons are anything to go by too, as either a PSG or Juventus player scored the very first goal of the new UCL campaign in three of the last seven seasons, with both of PSG’s goals in that run being scored at home within five minutes!

PSG have enjoyed a flying start to their Ligue 1 campaign (W5, D1) as they search for a record breaking 11th French championship, yet the UCL trophy has so far proven elusive for the Parisians. Despite their abundance of star quality, PSG have always fallen short in this tournament but at least made it through the group stage in each of the last ten attempts, and that’s despite failing to win their opening game in three of the last four editions (D1, L2).

Two-time European champions Juventus face PSG in competitive action for the first time in 25 years with hopes of continuing their unbeaten dominance in the fixture (W6, D2). Considering PSG’s less than convincing all-time record against Italian opponents (W3, D9, L9), a positive result for Juventus may be much more likely than the odds suggest.

While Juventus have struggled to truly get their season off the ground, they do remain unbeaten in Serie A (W2, D3), a considerable improvement over the four-game winless run they ended last season with. On the grand stage of the UCL proper, Juventus are unbeaten in ten of their last 13 away trips (W7, D3), but one of the only two occasions in which they failed to score during that run was on French turf, in Lyon!
