PSG look to secure top spot in Ukraine
Paris St Germain coach Antoine Kombouare believes his side have established a winning mentality based on resilience and a willingness to attack.
PSG travel to Ukrainian minnows FC Karpaty Lviv knowing they have already qualified for the last 32 of the Europa League.
The French club are also flying high in their domestic championship, occupying second place, and Kombouare believes they are thriving because of their cavalier approach.
"Since the beginning of the season we've shown a lot of character and also big mental qualities in games to score," Kombouare said.
"Recently, when Stade Brestois scored, we came back yet again. There was a period of uncertainty but we managed to forge ahead.
"When you have this confidence, this is a strength. Last year it was our concern.
"When we attack, we feel we are able to bend our opponents.
"It contains an element of risk because there are five or six players involved in the offence and the team can be cut in half, but the players enjoying themselves is most important."
Midfielder Ludovic Giuly believes PSG are playing with conviction and are in a far better place than last season.
"Compared to last year the squad has more character and is more confident," Giuly said. "It has shown in our results, whether it be the win over Sevilla or the win over Brest.
"We did not panic and the confidence speaks for itself, we have driven away our doubts."
PSG are in wonderful form having lost only once in the last 20 games in all competitions, scoring an impressive 13 goals in their last five matches.
Such statistics do not bode well for Karpaty, who have lost all five of their Group J games. They have conceded 14 goals and only have pride to play for.
PSG will finish group winners if they avoid defeat, but could lose and stay first if Sevilla's home clash with Borussia Dortmund ends in a draw or an away win.
PSG secure top spot
Paris St Germain secured top spot in Group J as Karpaty Lviv finally claimed their first point of this year's Europa League thatnks to a 1-1 draw.
Peguy Luyindula put the visitors ahead after 39 minutes at a freezing cold Ukrayina Stadion but Artem Fedetskiy levelled matters on the stroke of half-time.
The hosts dominated after the break but could not find the goal which would have given them a first win of the group stage.
PSG coasted through as group winners, joined by Sevilla, while Lviv waved goodbye to European competition.
It was the Group J whipping boys, though, who looked most dangerous in the early stages.
Gregory Coupet held onto Danilo Avelar's long-range strike after 17 minutes and then, barely 30 seconds later, parried Denis Kozhanov's effort from inside the box.
At the other end, PSG finally threatened midway through the half when Siaka Tiene fired over from the edge of the area.
Mathieu Bodmer tried his luck from distance as PSG started to assert themselves but Andriy Tlumak held on.
It was end-to-end stuff as Serghiy Kuznetsov got on the end of Yury Martynyuk's corner but could not convert.
But PSG took the lead moments later when Luyindula pounced on a poor attempted clearance by the home defence to finish from six yards.
Coupet then parried an audacious effort from Martynyuk to keep the French side ahead.
But, when Jeremy Clement fouled Nemanja Tubic 30 yards from goal, Fedetskiy's free-kick somehow snuck underneath him to level things up going into the break.
Fedetskiy tried his luck again moments after the restart but this time only found the PSG wall.
Indeed, it was all Lviv as Coupet pulled off a double save, first parrying Ihor Khudobyak's 18-yard strike, then brilliantly blocking a follow-up effort from Grygoriy Baranets.
On the hour mark Sammy Traore fouled Kozhanov on the edge of the box but Avelar could not find the target with his free-kick.
For PSG, Mevlut Erding brought a save out of Tlumak from 20 yards before Lviv broke and Coupet held onto a strike from Yuri Habovda, then denied Kuznetsov in similar fashion.
Avelar and Fedetskiy fired wide as Lviv looked for their elusive first win, but it was not to be.
