September 19, (THEWILL) – Football fans across the globe are thrilled for the start of the much-anticipated 2023/2024 UEFA Champions League group stage this week.

Following Manchester City’s record-breaking triumph last season, the competition resumes with immense enthusiasm, pitting the cream of the crop against one another on the ultimate stage. One of Tuesday’s marquee UCL fixtures sees Paris Saint-Germain host Borussia Dortmund at the Parc des Princes in Group F. Dubbed the “Group of Death”, it also consists of Newcastle United and AC Milan.

Les Parisiens seek to finally get their hands on the European trophy after dominating Ligue 1 for years. Their new coach, Luis Enrique, faces early challenges as the squad adapts without Messi and Neymar, presently fifth in the league. Meanwhile, Dortmund share PSG’s luck of missed chances in recent seasons. They narrowly lost out to Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga and have had mixed Champions League outcomes. Despite drawing some latest matches, they maintain a 13-game undefeated run across all tournaments.


However, Dortmund’s away form in the UCL has been less convincing lately, with only one victory in their last six such matches. Both sides have injury troubles, with PSG missing key men like Marco Asensio and Dortmund coping without Thomas Meunier and Mateu Morey.

Notwithstanding their respective issues, this match promises an enthralling battle between two European heavyweights aiming to overcome recent letdowns and make their mark in the UCL again. Kick-off is at 8pm local time.
