Benfica vs PSG Preview
Benfica have made a terrific start to this season, winning all but one of their matches in all competitions. That impressive winning run of 13 consecutive games came to an end on Saturday as they drew 0-0 with Vitoria de Guimaraes. In their last six Champions League home matches, Benfica have won four times. They’ve drawn and lost once apiece while scoring 14 and conceding six goals.
There’s huge confidence surrounding PSG this season, who have come flying out of the traps in the early weeks of the season. Like Benfica, they have won all but one of their matches in all competitions thus far, which also happened to be a draw. It’s a different story when it comes to their last six Champions League away matches, which has seen PSG manage just one victory. They’ve also drawn two and lost three during that run, scoring eight while also conceding 11 times.
