PSG will hope to secure their second consecutive victory in the UEFA Champions League when they welcome RB Leipzig to the Parc des Princes on Tuesday. Mauricio Pochettino's side marched to a 2-0 win over Manchester City in their most recent European contest, while the German side fell to a dampening defeat against Club Brugge
Les Parisiens were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw with Club Brugge on matchday one but prepare for battle with Leipzig having claimed a 2-1 win over Ligue 1 high-flyers Angers on Friday, with Danilo Pereira and a late Mbappe penalty canceling out Angelo Fulgini''s opener.
PSG's performances may still be coming under scrutiny as they sit pretty on top of the Ligue 1 rankings, but with 10 wins from 12 in all competitions this term, Pochettino's side firmly has the look of contenders for continental glory in the Champions League.
The hosts also boast a perfect home record of six wins from six Parc des Princes encounters this term - scoring at least two goals each time - and only one of their last 28 group-stage games at home has ended in defeat.
Angel Di Maria serves the final game of his lengthy European suspension this week, while Keylor Navas and Sergio Ramos remain questionable with injuries but have not been ruled out.
Pochettino was forced to work with a depleted squad for the win over Angers due to late returns from international duty, but the likes of Messi, Neymar, Leandro Paredes, and Marquinhos are all set to return here.
Paris Saint-German possible starting lineup: Donnarumma; Hakimi, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Mendes; Verratti, Gueye, Herrera; Messi, Mbappe, Neymar
