With a bloated workforce, Paris Saint-Germain will begin its European campaign this Wednesday at 9 p.m., during a trip to Bruges counting for the first day of the group stages of the Champions League. In the last four in recent seasons, the capital club will want to start this C1 perfectly before the receptions of Manchester City (September 28) and RB Leipzig (October 19). Asked for the club’s official website, Julian Draxler spoke about this meeting eagerly awaited by all Parisian supporters who could see the Messi-Neymar-Mbappé trio aligned from the start. Aware of the enormous qualities within the Ile-de-France workforce, the number 23 of the Rouge & Bleu has, however, called for caution.
“It’s a very difficult competition. We are going to face teams that we have already played in previous years, but each time we start from scratch. We will do everything to get out of the pool, I know it will be tough, but we all have a dream here at the club, and we can’t wait to start the competition. (…) It’s the Champions League, there are only difficult matches to play. Bruges is like that too, it’s a team that plays good football. We are going to prepare well, analyze this team, because it is not there by chance, all the teams involved in this competition deserve to play it. We will have to be at our maximum, as always. “
