Stadium: Parc des Princes

Key Statistics

  • PSG defeated Istanbul Basaksehir 2-0 in the away leg, with Moise Kean scoring a brace
  • Les Parisiens have won four of their last five home games in the Champions League, with the only defeat coming against Manchester United.

Paris Saint-Germain

PSG would look to build on their impressive 3-1 win against Manchester United at Old Trafford, thus moving closer to securing the qualification for the round of 16.

Les Parisiens started their Champions League campaign with a defeat against Man Utd and soon followed up with another one against Leipzig. But the French Ligue 1 managed to turn the things around lately and they are currently second in the group table.

However, they are aware of the fact that a win is certainly needed to make it to the next round as both Leipzig and United share same points (9 points) as PSG in the group of death.

PSG will enter into the game as the favourites as they will be having full-fledged Neymar at their disposal as the Brazilian was the match-winner against Man Utd last week.

Possible line-up

Keylor Navas; Florenzi, Marquinhos, Presnel Kimpembe, Abdou Diallo;Danilo Pereira,Leandro Paredes,Marco Verratti; Angel Di Maria, Kylian Mbappe, Neymar.

Istanbul Basaksehir

Basaksehir, as expected, had tough times battling with three top sides and have been relegated to the fourth place. However, they made a lasting memory by upsetting Ole Gunnar Solskjaers’ United at home while came close to do the same to the Leipzig in the 4-3 defeat.

Possible line-up

Gunok; Rafael, Ponck, Tekdemir, Kaldirim; Kahveci, Ozcan; Visca, Giuliano, Chadli; Ba
