Liverpool v. Paris Saint-Germain as main event
Programmed at 8.00pm GMT in England, the match will feature some of the world’s best forwards and a plethora of stars. It is certainly the match you do not want to miss.
Coach Liverpool, Klopp, previews the big clash:
“Winning the first game is always an advantage, but we haven’t won it yet. We have to play it and it will be really difficult.PSG are one of the favourites for the competition that’s for sure.
This team is built for winning the Champions League. It will be an interesting game for sure. With the players they have and the manager they have, they all brought it together to go as far as possible in the Champions League and we are aware of that.”

Coach FC Barcelona, Valverde on the upcoming match:
“We all want to win this competition. The Champions League is always a special motivation for the players and that’s ideal for the team.
They [PSV] are quite capable of giving us and the other teams in this group a very tough game. They play an attacking game, so we’re going to have to defend well.”
