Juventus host Paris-Saint Germain at the Allianz Stadium in the Champions League on Wednesday evening, but both sides in this Matchday 6 encounter in Group H will be playing for pride more than anything else.
The Bianconeri have been eliminated from Europe’s elite competition at the group stage for the first time since 2013/14, but they could fall into the Europa League – a mere consolation for them at this point – as long as they do not lose to Les Parisiens and Maccabi Haifa gets at least a point against Benfica.
La Vecchia Signora have only collected three points in five matches this season and they were defeated 4-3 by Benfica in their last group game. Meanwhile, the French side won their latest European match 7-2 against Maccabi Haifa with superstars Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Kylian Mbappe in scintillating form.
