Verratti: ‘PSG are confident’

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti notes “one of us, Napoli or Liverpool will be eliminated” in the Champions League but is “confident” it won’t be them.

Group C is incredibly tight, as all three teams and Red Star are separated by only two points.

The Partenopei welcome the Serbians to Naples on Wednesday, while Liverpool travel to Paris.

“The first four games have confirmed that our group is very difficult and that everything will be decided at the last moment,” Verratti told Corriere dello Sport.

“One of us, Napoli or Liverpool will be eliminated and we don’t want it to be us. A very difficult match awaits us at home to Liverpool, but we’re confident.

“Let’s not forget our fate is in our own hands, if we win the last two games we’ll qualify. We’ll need to be focused and determined, because Wednesday will be like a final.”
