Group ther­apy

Inside Sport - - 4 Things You Must Not Miss -

The UEFA Cham­pi­ons League has earned re­cent crit­i­cism for its group stage drag­ging on – just get the su­per-clubs through al­ready to knock­out, and get rid of all the Young Boys of the world. (That’s the Swiss club we’re talk­ing about ...) But this year’s pool play has thrown up some in­ter­est­ing ac­tion, par­tic­u­larly in Group C, which has fea­tured a clas­sic three-into-two sce­nario in­volv­ing Liverpool, Paris St-Ger­main and Napoli. An early exit for Jur­gen Klopp’s out­fit would be dis­as­ter-wor­thy (but not harm­ful to their Premier League chances, it must be said), and the path to ad­vance­ment is lined with a trip to Paris for PSG vs Liverpool (Nov 28), be­fore wel­com­ing the Ital­ians back at An­field in Liverpool vs Napoli (Dec 11).
