Edinson Cavani believes that his team Paris Saint-Germain has got the ability to upset the top teams and achieve European glory in the ongoing season.
PSG which had won its domestic league Ligue 1 last season will take on the German team Bayer Leverkusen in the pre quarter final round of the Champions League.
This is Cavani’s debut season at Parc Des Princes. He joined the French club this summer after leaving the Italian side Napoli. The transfer fee that PSG paid to bring him in was more than 60 million Euros and he is showing that the club was right to spend that much money on him.
The Uruguayan international has featured for PSG 17 times in the French top flight after his arrival and he has performed well in each and every one of those games. He is currently at the second position in the list of leading goal scorers in the Ligue 1 this season. Only Zlatan Ibrahimovic has scored more goals than him in the competition.
Talking to the reporters yesterday about PSG’s chances of winning the Champions League, the 26 years old striker said, “I have got no doubt in my mind that we are good enough to reach the final and eventually win the tournament.”
When asked about his experience of playing alongside Ibrahimovic who is considered one of the best in the world, Cavani said, “It’s certainly nice to be playing with a player of his calibre. He intimidates the opposing teams as he has got that amazing potential of finding the net at any point of time.”
PSG has lost only 1 out of their 19 Ligue 1 games this season. They are presently at the first position in the table with 44 points.
