The PSG vs NAP match preview –

The defending French Champions, Paris Saint-Germain will once again attempt to do what their management set out the target for, i.e, winning the UEFA Champions League. They will be playing the third game of the group-stage against Napoli on Wednesday.

PSG have won all of their ten games of the season in Ligue 1. It has been a one-way traffic in the French league for a while now, and with the kind of players they have, the team should be running away with every single competition they are a part of. Managerial change in the shape of Tomas Tuchel in place of Unai Emery brings stability in the transitions. He has been given the responsibility of winning the coveted tournament.

Meanwhile, Napoli are a side who too have seen a managerial change. Maurizio Sarri has left the club for Chelsea and he has been replaced by Carlo Ancelotti. The legendary manager is a known winner wherever he goes, and with he will be looking to win the Serie A for another team in the coming years. Even though they are placed second in the table, the fact of the matter is the gap between them and Juventus is palpable. Regardless, a good UEFA Champions League campaign would be the ideal litmus test Ancelotti needs to gauge the potential of his players.
