LIVE – Benfica-PSG: the composition of Paris with Danilo

Benfica in seventh heaven

If PSG are unbeaten this season, so are Benfica. The Portuguese have won 13 of the 14 games, an exasperating pace that obviously places them at the top of their league. The only black point is that this weekend they suffered their first draw and missed the first points of the season, on the field of Vitoria Guimarães.
