Benfica vs PSG Live stream: Is game on TV? Channel and how to watch
| Last updated
PSG travel to Portugal tonight to face Benfica as the Parisian club look to cement their place at the top of Group H.
Both sides are yet to drop a single point in this season’s Champions League.
PSG have been imperious as expected, collecting victories over Juventus and Maccabi Haifa.
Benfica have been similarly successful against those clubs, and also look to be on course to qualify for the knockout stage of the competition this season.
After a ruthless beginning to the campaign for PSG, the goals have started to dry up a little.
They’ve won their last 2 Ligue 1 games by margins of just 1 goal, and they thus have to rely on their defence late on in matches.
This isn’t usually the case for the French side whose collection of free-scoring forwards usually put games to bed pretty early on.
Here’s everything you need to know about Benfica Vs PSG.
Benfica Vs PSG live stream and TV channel
Benfica Vs PSG will be broadcast live in the UK on BT Sport 5 with coverage of the match beginning at 7.45pm.
The match, which kicks off at 8pm, will also be available for stream on the BT Sport App and website.
Benfica team news
Benfica are a little short at the back at the moment with Morato, Lucas Verissimo, and Joao Victor currently side-lined through injury and unavailable for selection tonight.
As such former Manchester City defender Nicolas Otamendi is likely to start alongside teenage centre-back Antonio Silva.
Julian Draxler could also feature against his parent club. He is on loan with Benfica this season.
PSG team news
As for PSG, they’ll continue to be without Renato Snaches (groin), Marco Verratti (calf), and Presel Kimpembe (hamstring) who are all carrying fitness issues.
PSG fans should expect to see Kylian Mbappé return to the starting XI tonight. He was rested against Nice at the weekend.
Youngster Hugo Ekitike will likely thus drop down to the bench for this one.
