The UEFA Champions League kicks off with another round of fixtures this week as Juventus lock horns with PSG in a Group H encounter at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday. Both teams have impressive players in their ranks and will want to win this game.
Juventus are currently in sixth place in the Serie A standings and have not been at their best this season. The Bianconeri were held to a 1-1 draw by Fiorentina over the weekend and will need to be at their best in this fixture.
PSG, on the other hand, are at the top of the Ligue 1 table at the moment and have been impressive so far this season. The reigning French champions eased past Nantes by a 3-0 margin in their previous game and will look to achieve a similar result this week.
PSG vs Juventus Head-to-Head
Juventus have an excellent record against Paris Saint-Germain and have won the two matches that have been played between the two teams. PSG have never defeated Juventus and will look to create history this week.
The previous meeting between the two sides took place in 2017 and ended in a 3-2 draw for Juventus. PSG have improved over the years and have a point to prove on Tuesday.
