Paris Saint-Germain welcome RB Leipzig to the Parc des Princes in the Champions League tonight as the French side look to build momentum following the arrival of Lionel Messi.

The Argentine scored a spectacular first goal for the club as PSG beat Manchester City 2-0 last time out in the Champions League but Mauricio Pochettino’s side then suffered their first defeat of the Ligue 1 season to Rennes in their last match before the international break.

Messi was unavailable as PSG beat Angers 2-1 on Friday night as he had yet to return from international duty but is set to start as the Ligue 1 club look to stay above City in Group A.

Odds

Although the Bundesliga side arrive in Paris pointless in Group A, RB Leipzig can still pack a punch and have the in-form former PSG player Christopher Nkunku in their ranks. PSG remain favourites however, and will have the edge in a close match. PSG 2-1 RB Leipzig
