PSG chief happy with UCL draw

Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi suggested that luck had been on the Ligue 1 champions' side after Thursday's Champions League group stage draw.

PSG were pitted alongside Benfica, Anderlecht and Olympiakos in Group C during the showpiece occasion in Monaco -- leaving Al-Khelaifi relatively confident of emulating last season's achievement of reaching the knockout stages.

"The balls were good to us, but it's not easy," he said. "Benfica is a good team, Olympiakos and Anderlecht are teams that know the Champions League well. We have to try and win every game and we'll see where we are at the end. The first thing we want to do is get through the group stage. We'll see what happens after that, but for the moment, it's the group stage."

Carlo Ancelotti steered PSG to the quarter-finals last season where they eventually fell to Barcelona after two valiant performances.

Laurent Blanc, on his appointment in June, was set the target of matching his predecessor's achievements, and veteran defender Zoumana Camara believes the first step of the path to the last eight is straightforward.

"We've come out of it well, it's a good draw," he said. "With all the respect we owe the other teams, we're happy to have avoided big teams like Manchester United, even if we'll have to play them at one time or another if we want to go all the way."
