At 11am on Monday, the team was back at training to prepare for the two challenges this week. Having surrendered its place as leader of Ligue 1 to Olympique Lyonnais, Carlo Ancelotti's men got down to work ahead of their trip East to Ukraine.

On the eve of the match, the return of Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the big news. The Sweden striker, who scored the most incredible goal against England last week, returned to Saint-Germain-en-Laye for training on Sunday alongside the likes of Nene, Verratti and Pastore.

In stunning form, as the English will attest, the Parisian hitman could be the man to fire PSG into the last 16 of the Champions League.

The week proposes two very different challenges for the Rouge et Bleu camp with Wednesday's trip to Kiev followed by promoted Troyes on Saturday.

Yes, the Parisians lost for a second consecutive match in Ligue 1 against a pumped up Rennes - a result that saw the capital club drop from first to third in the league standings behind OL and Bordeaux and just two points adrift of the leader.

But the squad's focus is well and truly on Europe now. After their 4-1 triumph over Dynamo Kiev at home, the capital club is looking for a repeat performance on the road and the stakes are high!

At Kiev's Stade Olympique, Paris Saint-Germain will be looking to confirm their place in the last 16 of Europe's premier club competition.

There's a feeling of optimism within the squad because Ibrahimovic and Co. only need one point to reach the first of this season's objectives.

The squad must now move into Champions League mode! And the morning session showed it was certainly the case with Carlo Ancelotti's men involved in a series of small sided matches to ensure the squad's competitive nature was intact!

So it will be no less than 2,500 kilometres from their home training complex that the PSG squad will be looking to get back to winning ways and continuing their European adventure and keep the dream alive in Europe's most sought after piece of silverware.

But it's also the chance to reassure its supporters ahead of Saturday's visit of Troyes to the Parc des Princes at 17:00 CET.

But before then, the team heads out to Kiev on Tuesday morning without Jérémy Ménez and Christophe Jallet, both injured. It's a final away game in the group for Les Rouge et Bleu and you won't miss a moment of the action right here on the club's official website and on PSG TV.
