This story will likely gain more traction when Paris Saint-Germain and AC Milan face one another in late October during Matchday 3. Still, the contest will see brothers Lucas and Theo Hernandez as opponents.
Both players are currently with the French national team, so the media in the country had to get their reaction to the UEFA Champions League draw. While the two are opponents, Lucas noted how emotional (in a good way) it will be once the two games occur during the group stage.
“Playing against your brother in a Champions League match it will be incredible,” Lucas told Téléfoot. “It will be a strong moment in the history of the family.”

Along with AC Milan and PSG, Borussia Dortmund and Newcastle United are in the group. As a result, it will be a challenge for the clubs as they try to advance to the tournament’s knockout stages.
PSG will begin Matchday 1 facing off against Dortmund on Sept. 19 at the Parc des Princes. If the capital club wants to get off on he right foot, they’ll need to take care of business at home.
