Paris Saint-Germain vs Liverpool / Champions League – This is definitely the most interesting match in the fifth round of the Champions League, because it brings us two teams that are playing great since the start of the season, but which are also leading a big fight for placement in the knockout stage. However, Liverpool is currently in a better position, which has, like Napoli won six points in the first four rounds, while the third PSG and the fourth Red Star have one or two points less. We should also add that the first duel of these rivals in Anfield ended with the victory of Reds with 3-2.

Of course, that defeat at Anfield will now only be an additional motive for the current French champions to try to come to a very important victory on their field in the fight for placement in the knockout stage of the Champions League. Especially because these three points would mean a huge step towards achieving that goal, since they would certainly surpass the team of Liverpool on the table, while it could easily happen that even their rival in the last round, Red Star, right before this match loses any chances for placement in one of the first two places in the group.
Namely, the Parisians have after that defeat from Liverpool, made a home win of 6-1 over Red Star and two draws against Napoli, while they are simply unstoppable in the championship, because they have scored the same number of victories in the previous 14 rounds. However, coach Tuchel is faced with possible absences of the injured strikers Mbappea and Neymar before this duel with the Reds, which would surely be a huge handicap for the Parisians, while Alves and Kurzawa will probably remain on the bench.
Probable lineups Paris Saint-Germain: Buffon – Marquinhos, Silva, Kimpembe – Meunier, Rabiot, Verratti, Bernat – Mbappe (di Maria), Cavani, Neymar (Draxler)
As for the guests from Liverpool, they have in the first four rounds of the Champions League only won points on their domestic field, where they defeated the team of PSG with 3-2 and Red Star with 4-0, while they lost to Napoli with 1-0 as guests and with 2-0 from Red Star in the last round. This big blunder in Belgrade could cost them dearly in the end, especially if they are now left without points in Paris, so we from coach of Klopp players expect to be set very openly and offensively at Princes' Park.
However, the Reds have been playing this way since the start of the season, especially in their domestic championship, where they still have not lost any matches and after 13 wins, they are in great second place on the table with just two points less than Manchester City. So last weekend they routinely celebrated at home with 3-0 over Watford, which means they are travelling to Paris in a great mood, especially because they are only missing the injured center-back Gomez and midfielder Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Probable lineups Liverpool: Alisson – Alexander-Arnold, van Dijk, Lovren, Robertson – Milner, Henderson, Wijnaldum – Salah, Firmino, Mane
