If Paris Saint-Germain is going to win the UEFA Champions League this 2023-24 season, they’d have earned it. The capital club is in the Group of Death with AC Milan, Borussia Dortmund, and Newcastle United.
Still, PSG defender Milan Skriniar has a positive outlook on the capital club’s path despite the challenge. The 28-year-old defender is excited about the matches that await, especially as he’ll return to the San Siro, although it will be to face AC Milan.
“Of course, winning the Champions League is not easy, but Paris has wanted it for a long time,” Skriniar said at a press conference (h/t Paris Fans). This is one of the objectives, and we have to prepare in such a way as to try to achieve it.
“It is a very difficult group and, at the same time, probably the most balanced. Beautiful matches await us, and personally, I look forward to them.”
Coming off the international break, the Ligue 1 giants will face off against OGC Nice on Sept. 15 for one last tune-up before Dortmund comes on Sept. 19 to the Parc des Princes for Matchday 1 of the Champions League group stage.
If PSG wants to get off on the right foot, they’ll need to take care of business at home. Skriniar is vital to PSG’s defense and has helped the unit improve from last season to start this 2023-24 campaign.
