Game info Benfica Lisbon vs Paris Saint-Germain


Benfica Lisbon and Paris Saint-Germain, fight a battle this Wednesday, October 5th. The meeting point will be the Estádio da Luz, in Lisbon. The start is scheduled for 19 UTC. The match is part of the schedule for the third round of the group stage of the 2022/2023 version of the Champions League. It's the last round of the first round. Portuguese and French have accumulated the six possible points in the first two rounds and share the top of the leaderboard.


Benfica Lisbon

After lining up 13 wins in the season, including matches from the Champions League qualifiers, the group stage of the competition and the Portuguese Championship, Benfica left the field without a win for the first time on Saturday, October 1st. Acting as a visitor, he had to be content with a goalless equalizer against Vitória de Guimarães.


The result was compatible with the lack of ambition in search of triumph and the low offensive productivity of the teams. Each of them produced six opportunities to shoot and hit the opponent's goal only on one occasion. The only difference was in possession of the ball. The Lisbon team had the ball for 605 of the time. However, he had difficulties in building offensive plays.


Thus, it only advanced to 22 points (seven wins and one draw). It was enough to keep the first position in the Liga Portugal leaderboard. Three points above Porto and Braga, their closest pursuers. With three goals conceded, Benfica has the least leaked defense in the Portuguese Championship. In the Champions League, they beat Maccabi Haifa 2-0 in Lisbon on the opening day. Then he passed Juventus, 2-1, in Turin.

Paris Saint-Germain

Paris Saint-Germain hasn't left the field defeated since March 20. His last fall took place against Monaco, at the Lous II stadium. It took 3 to 0 in confrontation for the twenty-ninth round of the 2021/2022 version of the French Championship. He counted 21 matches since then. He had 17 victories, including the 4-0 against Nantes that won the 2022 Supercup de France, and four draws.


The most recent item on this extensive list was the 2-1 against Nice on Saturday, October 1, at Parc des Princes, in play for the ninth round of the 2022/2023 Ligue 1 season. In the match, PSG did just enough to add three more points to the account. He stayed with the ball for 57% of the time, created triple opportunities to shoot (12 to 4) and easily led the right shots rate (4 to 1).


The score was opened by Messi at 29 minutes of the first half. In the finals, Laborde left the scoreboard level again after two minutes. The capital team's victory was assured by Mbappé's goal in the 38th minute. Thus, PSG reached 25 points (eight wins and a draw). They retained their lead in the French Championship and a two-point advantage over Olympique de Marseille, in second place.
