Paris Saint-Germain talk and train on eve of the visit of Portuguese club Benfica in their UEFA Champions League Group C match, which takes place on Wednesday night.

All eyes will once again be on mercurial striker and talismanic playmaker Zlatan Ibrahimovic at the Parc des Princes in Paris on Wednesday night.

The towering Swede and his Paris St Germain cohorts take on Benfica in a tantalising UEFA Champions League Group C clash.

The imposing frontman notched more than 30 goals for PSG last season, the most prolific of his career. But so far this term he has managed only two in 10 games ahead of the European showpiece.

Under former coach Carlo Ancelotti, the team revolved around Ibrahimovic. But since taking charge, new coach Laurent Blanc has changed the system to accommodate striker Edison Cavani, who joined this summer after three prolific seasons with Napoli.

Midfielder Thiago Motta and even 19-year-old centre-half Marquinhos have also been chipping in with goals of late.

PSG are the favourites to top a weak Group C that also features Olympiakos and Anderlecht. The real pressure will perhaps be to do better than last season, when they was knocked out in the quarterfinals by Barcelona.
