UEFA Champions League: PSG vs Liverpool match Preview and Lineup

It was assumed way back in August when the Champions League draw held in Monaco, that it would be a tough fight in the Group ‘C’ to qualify for the last 16. Undoubtedly, Group ‘C’ is the most interesting group of the Champions League with the presence of last year’s runners-up Liverpool alongside PSG, Napoli and Red Star Belgrade.

French Club PSG will give hospitality to Liverpool on their own field Parc Des Princes tonight. At the moment, Liverpool and Napoli have 6 points each after 4 matches. But Napoli is at the top of the group table as they are ahead in the face-to-face encounter. And the third and fourth positions respectively go to the host PSG and Red Star Belgrade with 5 and 4 points.

Meanwhile, whatever the point table may look like, there is a chance for everyone in the Group ‘C’ to reach the last 16. Every team of this group may have to wait till the last day of the group stage to ensure the last 16 places.

However, tonight this scenario could change slightly. If Liverpool wins tonight, they will confirm their place in the last 16. On the contrary, if they lose tonight, it will be almost impossible for PSG to survive for the race to the next round. But if the result is drawn then the group table equation can be complicated as well.

However, Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool was truly formidable throughout their entire last season, but this time it would be a tough ask for the All Reds to beat PSG at home. At least PSG’s last 7 years Champions League record at home tells you so.

After Qatar’s billionaire Nasser Al-Khelaifi took over the ownership of the club 7 years ago, they did not lose any Champions League matches except Real Madrid and Barcelona at home. Undoubtedly this stat will give more confidence to Thomas Tuchel’s PSG.

However, PSG Coach Tuchel’s is very worried about his team combination. Naymer Junior and Kylian Mbabpe, the two main contributors of Neymar-Mbappe-Cavani trio, is currently not 100% fit. It’s not cleared yet whether these two players or not. Both of them returned to the club with injuries after playing for the country during the international break last week. That’s why both of them were absent in the last league match against Toulouse. However, PSG coach Thomas Tuchel hoped to get them to be fit in today’s match.

On the other hand, Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool has said that they are ready to forfend opponent’s two great stars as well. Goalkeeper Alisson Baker. “Our defence is good enough, hopefully, there will be a great match.”

Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp also hoped for a great match. He said, “I do not think there are any matches now that you can say Liverpool have no chance. Because of the way we played last season, everyone respected us now.”

Meanwhile,  whatever their home record in the Champions League is, it would not be very easy for PSG to defeat the All Reds.

PSG possible starting lineup:
Buffon; Marquinhos, Silva, Kimpembe; Meunier, Verratti, Di Maria, Bernat; Mbappe, Cavani, Neymar

Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Milner, Henderson, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Man
