‘Golden Boy’ Lee Kang-in will attempt to score in two consecutive UEFA Champions League (UCL) matches.
Lee’s club Paris Saint-Germain (France) will host AC Milan (Italy) in Group F of the 2023-2024 UEFA Champions League at 5 a.m. (KST) on Aug. 8 in Milan, Italy.
Lee scored a goal in the team’s 3-0 home win over AC Milan on Oct. 25.
For Lee, who joined Paris Saint-Germain ahead of the 2023-2024 season, it was his first goal for his new club and his debut in the UCL, which he calls his ‘dream stage’.
He faces AC Milan away from home, a team he has fond memories of, and has been on a roll lately.
On October 29, the day after his Paris Saint-Germain debut, he set up teammate Kylian Mbappe for his first assist of the season in a league match against Brest.
He also opened the scoring against Montpellier on October 4, scoring his first goal in a league match and creating an offensive point in three consecutive games.
It will be interesting to see if the three-game attacking point streak, which began with a goal against AC Milan, continues to heat up against the Rossoneri.
Paris Saint-Germain leads the group with two wins and one loss. Borussia Dortmund (Germany) and Newcastle United (England), both with one win, one draw, and one loss, round out the second group.
AC Milan is at the bottom of the group with two draws and one loss.
South Korean defender Kim Min-jae, who plays for Bayern Munich in Germany, will host Galatasaray (Turkiye) at 5 a.m. on Sept. 9 for their fourth Group A match.
The Bavarians will be looking to lift their spirits after being knocked out of the German Football Association (DFB) Pokal second round by third-tier side FC Saarbrücken 1-2 on Sunday.
Bayern Munich, who top Group A with three points, can further consolidate their lead with a win against second-place Galatasaray (one win, one draw, one loss) later in the day.
Hwang In-beom, who plays for Zvezda (Serbia), will be at home against Leipzig (Germany) in the fourth match of Group G at 5 a.m. on Aug. 8.
Celtic (Scotland), featuring Oh Hyun-gyu and Yang Hyun-joon, will face Atletico Madrid (Spain) away in Group E at the same time.
Zvezda and Celtic are at the bottom of the group with one draw and two losses through three games, so they are in need of a turnaround. 토토사이트
