Europa: Champions League – Group stage
Match start: 20:45 (GMT+2)
Prior to the 3rd round of the Champions League the team of Unai Emery had spent away meeting of the national championship against Dijon in such a squad (4-3-3):
Aréola – Meunier, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Berchiche – Alves, Rabiot, Draxler - Di María, Mbappé, neymar;
First reserve players: Lucas Moura, Giovani Lo Celso;
Alas! The absence of Thiago da Silva, Layvin Kurzawa, Thiago Motta, Marco Verratti, Edinson Cavani in the starting line-up could play a low-down trick with the vice-champion.
Forced victory over underdog
Such change in the squad could lead to sensation! And instead of definite victory over weak opponent the superstar team of Unai Emery was not able to score a goal for 70 minutes of a game and then at the 87th minute it had managed to miss the leveller – 1:1.
And only thanks to a miracle during the added time the guests had managed to win due to an accurate kick of Thomas Meunier – 1:2.
Tournament position of group B
Now the vice-champion of France had come to Brussel to meet with Anderlecht. We remind you that during two opening rounds the team of Unai Emery destroyed Celtic, Scotland – 5:0 (Neymar, Mbappé, Cavani 2, own goal) and Bayern Munich – 3:0 (Alves, Cavani, Neymar).
The initial opinion of experts was that the champion of Germany and the vice-champion of France were bright favorites of their groups. And for last month from the day when the group tournament of the Champions League began, instead of Carlo Ancelotti the new head coach of the Munich grandee became Josef Heynckes and after such a change Bayern again became one of the favorites of European football.
It is obvious, that the final distribution of the places among the teams of Unai Emery and Josef Heynckes will finish after the return leg of PSG in Munich (on the 5th of December). And now there are no doubts that two favorites of the group will win over their opponents.
