Marco Verratti believes Paris Saint-Germain are capable of winning the Champions League this season.
The Parisian side retains its place in the competition thanks to a 1-0 win over Club Brugge in midweek, preserving their perfect record and clean sheet in the process.
With Real Madrid among their victims already this term, PSG are optimistic that they'll finally break the duel in the competition, having embarrassingly gone no further than the quarter-finals since the takeover by QSI in 2011.

"Do I feel like I'm playing in the best team in the world? Yes, because I play with great players.
"We should have a lot of confidence in ourselves because I do not really see any teams better than us."
Meanwhile, Verratti committed to his long-term future to PSG in October, signing a deal that will keep him at Parc des Princes until 2024, despite being left in the middle of the Manchester United and Barcelona in the past.
The 27-year-old Italy international, though, is delighted to have his future secured and even said that he would happily finish his career in Paris.
"If I stayed, it's because this club gives me everything I'm looking for in football," he added. "I have no problem completing my career here.
"People ask me: Why do not you try another experience?" Because of me, here, it's always the first day, I always want to help the team. For me, winning here is different from winning in another team. "
Verratti has played 292 games for PSG since moving to France from Pescara in 2012, including 55 in the Champions League. He has six titles to his credit. He has six titles to his credit.
