PSG vs Anderlecht : French powerhouse PSG face Belgian club Anderlecht in a crunching game at Paris.
PSG are in a driving seat in the group stage so far, with nine points from three games and are likely to seal at least a second spot with a win over the Belgian club.
However, a second position wouldn’t be sure just yet, as Bayern recovered vital three points against Celtic to stay on the race for the top spot.
The French club won their first home encounter against Bayern Munich 3-0, leading to the departure of Bayern manager Carlo Ancelotti.
Subsequently, Bayern welcomed back coach Jupp Heycknes back to the club. The German champions have recovered well in the league reclaiming the top spot while winning in the DFB Pokal against Leipzig.
It is likely the group winner will be decided in a crucial tie at Germany. But, PSG will look to win by the biggest margin possible to make it unreachable for Bayern.
Meanwhile, the game comes following a slight hint of unrest in what has been a chilly season so far for PSG. Their Brazilian ace Neymar has created a few problems- with fights over Cavani in the past followed by rumors about disliking his manager.
According to Marca, Unai Emery’s constant video analysis has bored Neymar. But it is likely to be another Marca expertise in making mountains out of a mole.
But Unai Emery did sanction a warning for Neymar following his red card against Marseille – and said the player should be disciplined enough to sway off provocations. The manager said, in a post match conference at Marseille:
“Marseille players pushed him, fouled him. It’s important referees control that. But he [Neymar]should not fall victim to the provocation, although I understand players are humans.”
