PSG v Barcelona LIVE: Can Newly Found Wealth Compete With World’s Best Team?
Kick Off: Saturday 4th August
Live on Betfair Video 7.00pm
The complexion of Paris Saint Germain has changed rapidly over the last year or so. After being taken over by the Qatar Investment Authority we have witnessed Carlo Ancelotti take the reins of a previously sleeping giant, followed by the high profile signings of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Thiago Silva, and Ezequiel Lavezzi.
With odds quotes as short as 1/3 for them to win Ligue 1 this coming season, can they show the world that they are up to the task in hand by beating Barcelona, considered best team in the world, at the Parc Des Princes on Saturday evening?

Losing out by 3 points to Montpellier in last season’s title race after spending 108 million euros on players to make it happen, PSG have upped the ante by landing some of the worlds most in demand players.
Travelling home from their US tour with two draws under their belt (Chelsea 1-1, DC United 1-1) PSG fans will now require some substance from their star studded squad in their first game on home turf, but is it too much to ask to beat Barcelona so soon?
Barcelona, despite worldwide acclaim for their style and panache, will be bitterly disappointed with their lack of silverware last season; losing out to Chelsea in the semi final of the Champions League, being pipped to the post by Real Madrid in La Liga and then ultimately losing their revered boss Pep Guardiola.
Now under the guidance of Tito Vilanova, Barca will see this game as a chance to show the whole of Europe that they remain top of the tree, and that money can’t buy immediate success.
Betting exchange Betfair will be showing the match live and exclusively via their live streaming service, and it will be a perfect opportunity to see just how well both teams are equipped for the new season, which is now just a couple of weeks away.
