Pick Szeged and Paris Saint-Germain have been drawn into the same group in the Champions League group stage. The two teams will meet tonight and play their first match against each other in the season. During the transfer period, Szeged stayed without their coach Juan Carlos Pastor and key players Mirko Alilovic, Alexander Blonz, Kent Robin Tönnesen, Miklós Rosta and Bogdan Radivojevic. They opened the season with two victories in the league against newly promoted Gyongyosi, but showed a bad performance against mediocre Ferencvaros (34:36), but none of the matches can be compared to this one.
PSG has played one match in the French league so far, winning it confidently 37-27 against Limoges. In the Super Cup, they crashed Nantes 35-25. The Gaul’s squad is full of top class players, and it’s enough to mention the name of the captain, the Olympic (3x), world (4x) and European (3x) champion, three-time Champions League winner Nikola Karabatic. The legendary players will retire at the end of the season, so his game will be seen for the last time in Szeged. Also, here is Máthé Dominik of the Hungarian national team and Kent Robinson, who spent two years in Szeged, while one of the best center back in the world Luc Steins will be a big problem for Szeged defense.
All in all, PSG like always is one of the main candidate for the Champions League trophy and coach Raúl González has all that he need to victoriously open the group stage.
