Over the last decade or so, Paris Saint-Germain have managed to establish themselves as a potential title winner in the Champions League because of the squad of players that they have been able to assemble. The club have become one of the biggest football teams in the world and the continental prize of being named Europe’s best is something they continually chase. With the Parc des Princes holding a capacity of 47,929 supporters, fans of the club continue to flock to the midweek matches in anticipation and expectation that their side will be able to achieve their aims of being crowned winners each season.
PSG, as they are more commonly known around the world, have had a plethora of superstar players in their squad since being taken over and turned into one of football’s superpower clubs. Men such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Kylian Mbappe, Neymar Jr, Edinson Cavani and Thiago Silva have all featured for the Parisians as they look to continue to build the club’s history in the record books.
The Champions League is the only club competition that continues to evade the grasps of the French giants, although one would imagine it is not something that will continue for too much longer.
Les Parisians have featured in no fewer than in 13 editions of the tournament, with recent campaigns seeing the club reach the knockout stages on the vast majority of occasions that they make an appearance, including reaching the quarter-finals on no fewer than four times.
Indeed, memorable moments within the Champions League that have included PSG have included their 4-0 victory at the Parc des Princes against FC Barcelona in the 2016/17 edition’s Last 16 round, however the return leg was a moment those associated with the club will want to forget.
The Blaugrana managed to overturn the deficit and record an impressive 6-1 victory at the Camp Nou, therefore dumping Les Parisians out of the tournament in an acrimonious way.
Other moments that the club have had in previous tournaments have included defeats to Manchester United in the Round of 16 in the 2018/19 competition despite having held a 2-0 advantage, as well as a mauling by Real Madrid at the same stage of the 2017/18 competition.
