Much of the talk prior to the current Champions league season has been on Premier league champions Manchester City and whether they will finally land the title. However, could it be PSG’s this year as they go relatively under the radar. You can check out the Champions League odds provided by Win Comparator, which shows that most firms including William Hill are offering 7/1 about the French champions landing the title. This puts them behind only Manchester City, Barcelona and defending champions Liverpool in the market. Here we cover how PSG have started their route to the Champions league title.
PSG have been drawn in Group A against Club Brugge, Galatasaray and 13 time winners Real Madrid. Matchday one was the blockbuster clash as they welcomed Real Madrid to the Parc des Princes. They kick started the competition with an impressive victory as Angel Di Maria starred against his former side. The Argentinian opened the scoring after 14 minutes from close range, before curling in a stunning strike from outside the area in the 33rd minute. Meunier then added in a late third in what was a very one-sided affair.

Next up for PSG was the difficult away trip to Turkey to face domestic champions Galatasaray. They were the dominant side throughout the match as they reduced the home side to just one shot on target over the 90 minutes. They finally got the break through as Icardi netted the only goal of the game in the 1-0 victory. This continued their faultless start to the competition.
Next up was a trip to take on Belgium side, Club Brugge. This turned out to be another hugely dominating performance as the home side failed to produce a single shot on target. PSG had taken a 1-0 lead into half time, before routing the opposition in the second half with the game finishing 5-0. This included a brace from Icardi and yet another hat-trick from star man, Kylian Mbappé.
This means PSG have taken maximum points from their three fixtures and look set to progress through as impressive Group A winners. PSG are also one of just three sides to have won each of their opening three fixtures, alongside Bayern Munich and Manchester City. They are also the only side in the competition yet to concede a goal. It has been a very strong start for the French champions and could it finally be their year for Europe’s major title.
