Liverpool vs PSG
Uefa Champions League 2018/19
Venue: Anfield
Date: Tuesday, 18 September
Kick-off time: 8pm BST

Liverpool kick off their Champions League campaign against Paris Saint-Germain tonight hoping to go one better after reaching last season's final.

Jurgen Klopp's swashbuckling Reds dazzled in the tournament last term, but were undone in the final as Real Madrid lifted the trophy for the third year running.

Liverpool are unbeaten in the Premier League after five games this season, but so are PSG - and Klopp's defence will be put to the test against the likes of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe from the very first game in Group C.

Head to head record

The two sides have only faced each other twice before in an official competition.

Liverpool won the first leg of the 1997 Uefa Cup Winners' Cup semi-final 2-0, but PSG went through with a 3-0 second-leg win before being beaten in the final by Barcelona.

Roberto Firmino may miss out for Liverpool after suffering an eye injury against Tottenham following a sickening clash with Jan Vertonghen in which the Spurs defender's finger accidentally lodged in the forward's eye socket.

Firmino had "an abrasion of the eye, but there will be no lasting damage" after he was assessed at a London hospital.

As for PSG, Neymar and Mbappe will return after being rested in the French champions' 4-0 win against St Etienne.
