PSG vs Benfica
Laurent Blanc`s lads extended their invincibility following wins to nil against Valenciennes (1-0) and Toulouse (2-0). Les Princes are unbeaten this term in 10 matches in all competitions (7 wins and 3 draws) and the new players are integrating better and better. Cavani has scored in 3 of the last 4 matches, while hot prospect Marquinhos scored his second goal in 4 games.
Benfica won their first match in the group stage, 2-0 against Anderlecht at home thanks to first-half goals from Duricic and Luisao, but they made several wrong steps on Liga ZON Sagres (3W 2D 1L), being already 5 points behind Porto. Only narrow wins over Gil Vicente, with the winner scored on stopage time and against Guimaraes and a 3-1 victory over second from the bottom Pacos Ferreira are definitely not impressive results.
Benfica have a superior European experience at this level, as they have played on group stage in the last 3 seasons in a row, but PSG definitely holds the momentum, with their 5 star roaster. They are very hard to defeat at their Parc des Princes, being undefeated since last November, while the guests have been inconsistent at this start of the season and failed to win in 2 out of their 3 trips.
PSG without: Thiago Silva; Javier Pastore
Benfica without: Amorim; Silvio; Eduardo Salvio; Markovic
