Liverpool fans react to news that Buffon and Verratti will miss PSG Champions League opener

When Liverpool entered the group stage of the Champions League, they knew that they would be handed a tough draw on account of being placed in Pot 3.

In the end, the Merseyside outfit were given a difficult test as they were placed in a group alongside Paris Saint-Germain, Napoli and Red Star Belgrade.

The biggest challenge for Jurgen Klopp’s team will be against the Ligue 1 giants, who will be led by new head coach Thomas Tuchel.

It is a daunting prospect for the Reds given that PSG have Neymar, Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe leading the line.

However, Liverpool have a major threat of their own in the form of a trio consisting of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.

Prior to the opening clash at Anfield on September 18, Klopp has received a major boost.

Goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon will miss the contest after receiving a red card against Real Madrid while playing for Juventus in the competition last season.

Marco Verratti will also be absent after being sent off for two bookable offences against Madrid in the 2017-18 campaign.

With both players banned, Liverpool fans can feel a sense of optimism, and some have been posting their thoughts on Reddit.
