"It was a huge mistake," wrote Le Parisien after Serge Aurier's early blunder allowed his old club - Toulouse FC - to become the first team to get the first goal in a game against Paris this season. "He is still faltering in his first games in Paris," it adds of the Ivorian full-back, who was given a rather tough 3/10 rating for his performance. Five points separate Paris from Ligue 1 leaders Olympique de Marseille, and - with Tuesday's meeting with FC Barcelona in sight - coach Laurent Blanc said. "We're not a better side than the rest anymore. Now the game against Barcelona will either really launch our season or put us really down in the dumps."

Manchester City left-back Aleksandar Kolarov has asked home fans to keep the pressure up on AS Roma this week. A veteran of several Rome derbies during his time at S.S. Lazio, he told the Manchester Evening News: "In a game like this you have to feel you are playing at home – for the first couple of minutes our fans are good and crazy but then they calm down. We need support at home. Away, we have great support, one of the best, but at home in my opinion we are a little bit quiet."

Benfica goalkeeper Júlio César (right leg) is a doubt for the match at Leverkusen, and with Artur suspended and Paulo Lopes struggling with a muscular injury, youngster Bruno Varela could make his first-team debut in Germany. Argentina midfielder Enzo Pérez ended the last Liga game limping on his right foot but should be fit for Wednesday's match.
