PSG vs Napoli
Uefa Champions League 2018/19
Venue: Parc des Princes
Kick-off time: 8pm BST

Two European heavyweights meet in a tantalising Champions League tie between Paris Saint-Germain and Napoli.

PSG responded to their opening day defeat to Liverpool with a thumping win over Red Star Belgrade last time out.

Napoli meanwhile were able to hand Jurgen Klopp’s side their first defeat of the season at the Stadio San Paulo but a goalless draw against Red Star means their lead at the top of Group C is a slender one.
