Preview: Olympiakos looking to pull off an upset at Parc des Princes
The Greek champions will be looking to pick all three points when they face Paris Saint Germain, a victory will take them on level points with the group leaders and will definitely enhance their chances of making it to the next round.
However PSG who have been unbeaten in both league and European games will be very difficult to break down and Olympiakos will surely be pessimistic of their chances on Wednesday. Les Parisiens have won three of the four Champions League matches they have played this season and defeated Olympiakos 4-1 in the reverse fixtures.
Preview: Parisiens looking to continue unbeaten run
The Capital side have been unbeaten in the Champions League in the last ten outings and will be hoping to better their tally when they face Belgium based club Anderlecht. Even though they were knocked out of the Champions League in the Quarter- Finals last season, their elimination was a result of an away goal advantage to Barcelona after both legs finished with the scores levelled.
Laurent’s Blanc men will however make their trip to Brussels in a confident mood currently undefeated in all competitions this season. Les Rouge-et-Bleu will aim to make it three wins out of three when they face Anderlecht, having already scored easy victories over Olympiacos and Benfica.

A victory in Le Classique could take both the teams to the top of table, should league leaders AS Monaco drop points over the weekend. Paris Saint Germain would be hoping to continue their impressive form which saw them defeating Portuguese outfit Benfica 3-0in what was arguably their best display of football this season.
The French champions are currently undefeated this season in all competitions, having so far won the French Super Cup, both their Champions League matches and notching up 18 points from the eight league games they have played so far.
Preview: PSG's high-flying offense could cause problems for Benfica
Since all the money was injected into PSG, they have not been able to establish themselves in European Football. While they've won Ligue 1, and came close to eliminating Barcelona in the Champions League, given the amount of talent they have, a European title should be expected.
On Wednesday they will take another step towards that, when they welcome Benfica to the Parc de Princes.
The Portuguese side has not started their domestic campaign off in the greatest form, but they were able to defeat Anderlecht 2-0 in Lisbon in their opening group match. Goals from Djuricic and Luisão lifted the Águias past the Belgian side.
Preview: Monaco in pursuit of new Ligue 1 order with victory over defending champions
The cash laden clubs will face each other for the first time in two years in a match which has been termed “El Cashio”. The last two encounters between the two sides ended in a draw, however this time it is an altogether different story.
PSG were expected to take the league by storm for years to come after being acquired by Nasser Al-Khelaifi, who guaranteed his full financial support to the club. Lucrative spending by the Parisien side enabled them to buy one of the brightest players in the world of football which helped PSG to win its first league title in 19 years.
Elsewhere in Europe, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City both ensured that they also earned all three points against Greek outfit Olympiakos Piraeus and Czech side Viktoria Plzen respectively.
This left PSG and the Citizens top of their respective groups. The former shares the number one spot in Group C with Benfica while Man United’s city rivals are joint leaders in Group D with Bayern Munich.
Manchester City’s 3-0 win over CSKA Moscow – with second half goals in the span of ten minutes from Edin Džeko, Yaya Touré, and Sergio Agüero – does not reflect the hardship they went through. There was certainly quite a bit of added pressure on Manuel Pelligrini’s men going into this match.
Biggest clubs eying transformation
Last season, these squads suffered from lack of balance in attack, midfield or defence – due to injuries or loss of form by some of their players. They have since been busy letting names out or bolstering themselves with new acquisitions.
With the appointment of David Moyes at Manchester United, the return of Jose Mourinho to Chelsea, the arrival of Carlo Ancelotti at Real Madrid, and the appointment of Pep Guardiola by Bayern Munich, several players have been linked with moves to the respective clubs of these aforementioned gentlemen.

Preview: Laurent Blanc looking to start title defence with a win against Jean Fernandez’s side
After a 2-1 win over Girondins de Bordeaux in Libreville, Gabon, in the Trophee des Champions, reigning French champions Paris Saint-Germain have made a 5,000 km journey back to the capital of France ahead of the start of the 2013/2014 campaign. Laurent Blanc’s men gave a good account of their credentials against Les Girindons in West Africa and the triumph represented a winning start to Blanc’s reign as the capital club’s manager.
Preview: Ancelotti looking to get better of former employees
Carlo Ancelotti’s managerial duties at Real Madrid could not have gone to a better start after the Spanish giants thumped AFC Bournemouth 6-0 just a few days back and now, it is time for the new Galacticos manager to look to register a win over a club he guided to the Championnelle in France last season.
Three individuals, Zlatan Ibrahimvoic, Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlo Ancelotti are set to be the focus of this spectacle. The game takes place at Nya Ullevi, Goteborg, Sweden, a country where Zlatan Ibrahimovic took his first steps towards becoming a global star.
Three! That is the official number of players Paris Saint-Germain have signed so far this summer. After splashing the cash for Edinson Cavani, bargaining successfully for Lucas Digne, PSG once again beat their competitors by securing the services of Marquinhos for 31.4m euros which makes him the fifth most expensive defenders in the history of the game.
Only a year ago, the young Brazilian was a completely unknown quantity when Zdenek Zeman brought him to Rome last summer from Corinthians. Since then, the youngster has seen a rise in his standing that is nothing short of stratospheric and phenomenal.
Marquinhos arrived in the Eternal City as a shy 18-year-old prospect, eager to learn in his first few seasons before announcing himself on the world stage.
After a lot of haggling and a lot of wooing, Leonardo has given Paris Saint-Germain a perfect departing gift in the shape of Uruguay international, Edinson Cavani. The striker arrives at Parc des Princes with the reputation of being one of the most lethal strikers in the game today.
Put Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the equation and it becomes clear that out of all the big clubs in Europe at the moment, this particular strike partnership promises goals galore with ruthless professionalism.However, that might not be the case if reports coming out of the Saint-Germain region are anything to go by with.
The arrival of Il Matador has resulted in the giant Swede getting all jumpy largely due to the fact that he might no longer remain the face of the club like he used to be last season.
Ideally, there should be no question about which league the winner should come from. Both the sides in the UEFA Champions League finale represented the Deutsche Fussball League of which one went on to become only the seventh side in history to win the coveted treble and the fourth side to win five European Cups.
Yet, football is dominated by media bias.…
