The UEFA Champions League is back finally, and it resumes with high profile fixtures across Europe. Paris Saint Germain will host Juventus in one of the biggest matches in week one.

Juventus will visit Paris Saint Germain for the opener in Group H, and it is easily the biggest match of the round. Christophe Galtier will be in charge of his first UCL match with PSG against the Italian giants, and the former Lille manager understands the strengths of his opponents.

“They are a team with a lot of experience, with players of the very highest level and a coach that knows this competition like the back of his hand. They are a team that is always difficult to beat. People say that Juventus are struggling, they are unbeaten in Serie A and have only conceded two goals. They are difficult to get past with the intensity that their players bring. Juventus are very strong in the transition.”
