Disappointed to be held to a 0-0 draw in Slovakia on matchday three, Paris Saint-Germain will look to make amends at home against Slovan Bratislava in UEFA Europa League Group F.
The sides met for the first time in UEFA competition on matchday three having never played a team from their opponents’ country before.
PSG had reason to regret missing a host of chances, and were reduced to nine men by the end with the dismissals of Clément Chantôme (63) and Siaka Tiéné (80).
A total of 16 games have been played between Slovakian and French clubs in UEFA competition, with the Slovakian sides’ record reading W2 D2 L12. The aggregate score in those ties is 47-9 to the French teams.
PSG are unbeaten in 17 home games (ten wins, seven draws) since a 4-2 defeat by Hapoel Tel-Aviv FC in the 2006/07 UEFA Cup group stage.
Slovan have won only once in their last ten European away matches, beating FK Crvena zvezda 2-1 in last season’s UEFA Europa League third qualifying round. Four of their last five away games have ended in draws.
