(MHN Sports Reporter Lee Sol) Lee Kang-in is looking to turn things around after a difficult time with his team.
Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) versus Borussia Dortmund (Dortmund) in the first leg of the 23-24 UEFA Champions League group stage of the ‘War of the Stars’ at the Parc des Princes in Paris, France, at 4 a.m. on June 20.
The two teams have been paired with AC Milan and Newcastle in the ‘Group of Death’. With PSG underperforming in the league and Dortmund unbeaten in the league, it will be interesting to see which team can knock off the steamers first. It will also be interesting to see if Lee Kang-in returns from injury.바카라
With Messi, Neymar, and Mbappe, PSG has always been a favorite among domestic fans, and with the arrival of Lee, they have become “the team”.
However, the results have been disappointing. With the departure of Neymar, Messi, and other key players in the summer transfer window, as well as Lee’s injury, PSG has only won two games, drawn two, and lost one in the league, making them a far cry from last season’s champions. Lee, who is expected to make his return from injury against Dortmund in the Champions League, will be paired with Mbappe for the first time. Playing his first Champions League match for PSG, can he and Mbappe lead the team to victory?
Traditional German powerhouse Dortmund travels to PSG. They lost key midfielder Bellingham to the club, but bolstered their midfield with the addition of Xavi in the transfer window. Despite the loss of their key resources, the team is led by captain Emre Can, with Royce, Brandt, and other quality players. Dortmund are still a force to be reckoned with, going unbeaten in the league, but are currently in seventh place, some way off the pace of the league leaders. Going into the fourth round, many fans are skeptical that PSG will be able to knock off the unbeaten Dortmund, who have been on a poor run of form lately.
If Lee Kang-in can repeat the form he showed last season when he partnered with David Mourinho (Mallorca), it’s possible. It’s hard to make direct comparisons between the two players, but it won’t be too difficult if Kylian Mbappe, a World Cup winner and world-class goalkeeper, is able to help him.
