"The first game is special because it is an attractive competition. I think the team is approaching the game in good shape and is in good form. We are just at the start of the season with many things to improve, but in general I think we are in a good moment," he said yesterday.

However, Enrique warned against complacency and is keen to make a flying start with PSG expected to challenge for first place in the group.

"If we play with intensity we will be much closer to victory, if not then we could struggle. This match is very important if we want to be first in the group. Three points count as much in this match as say they would against PSG."
