Ligue one defending champions were at it when they were put through their paces in training this morning before flying to England to take on Liverpool who were last season’s finalist.

The two skippers, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar showed calmness and joked with each other ahead of the clash.
The Brazilian star was rested on Friday in 4:0 victory against St Etienne while World Cup winner Mbappe was out due to suspension.

They will appear ready and fresh on Tuesday but former Juventus legend Gini Buffon will miss due to suspension alongside Adrien Rabiot and Marco Verratti.

However, Liverpool showed their strengths against Tottenham to continue their 100% winning form which will boost them morally to play against Tuchel’s men.

A win is crucial for both teams as they still have Napoli to contend with, who will face Red Star Belgrade in group C.

Paris St Germain have scored 17 goals in five French league campaigns and have yet conceded just four goals.

This will surely be a stern test as both teams have neither seen defeat nor stalemate since the start of their domestic campaigns. Which means, this could be a tough one for Thomas Tuchel after he replaced Unai Emery last summer.

Both suave coaches were phenomenal while at Borussia Dortmund but Klopp showed more impact with the team. However, in a business point of view, Tuchel has more expensive players than Liverpool.

Now 5 players, Tuchel worried against Liverpool after further injury concern.
