PSG vs. Benfica: Paris Saint-Germain welcomes Benfica to the French capital in midweek Champions League action that could decide the top spot in Group H.
The two sides played out a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture in Lisbon last week with goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma and Odysseas Vlachodimos putting in key performances.
The result has done little to change the picture in Group H, with the top two on seven points after three games played. PSG has a slight advantage in goals.
A win for either side would put them in the driving seat for the knockout stages with Juventus struggling to keep pace with them.
