Paris Saint-Germain, Atalanta’s next opponents in the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League quarter-finals which will take place on Wednesday 12 August at 21 CEST at the Estádio do Sport Lisboa and Benfica in Lisbon, are engaged on the national front with the cup finals. The Paris club on 24 July won the thirteenth French Cup in their history by beating 1-0 St-Étienne in the final thanks to a goal by Neymar, even if the joy for the victory was dampened by Mbappé’s injury. On Friday 31 July, the team coached by Thomas Tuchel will try to win their ninth League Cup in the final against Lyon to complete an exceptional national treble.
THEIR PATH IN THE UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE
PSG were the UEFA Champions League Group A winners on 16 points, five more than Real Madrid, with an important streak: five wins, a draw and no defeats, 17 goals scored and only 2 conceded. In the round of 16, they knocked out Borussia Dortmund, turning the 1st leg’s 2-1 defeat at the German ground into a 2-0 win in the 2nd leg, thanks to Neymar and Bernat.
Atalanta and PSG have never faced each other.
