Liverpool dealt blow before Champions League clash against Paris Saint-Germain


Jurgen Klopp's side are second, level on points with Napoli but behind them due to their defeat in Italy, while one point ahead of PSG and two ahead of bottom-placed Red Star.

"It's actually more hard to prepare when my players don't know the opponents".

The manager was also quick to dismiss supposed mind games from either camp with regards to the fitness of key players, with the German confident Sadio Mane will play after illness. "They will have watched 500,000 YouTube videos of Mbappe!"

Cavani ensured that their domestic dominance was consolidated when he expertly controlled a knockdown after a period of scrappy play, then spun Toulouse defender Kelvin Amian with a neat flick before firing home the victor.

Uruguay striker Cavani struck in the ninth minute of a disjointed performance to maintain the runaway leader's 100 percent start to the season ahead of the crunch visit of Liverpool in the Champions League on Wednesday.

"Not like in terms of who plays, in the mental aspect, maybe it can happen, you feel like five per cent too sure that you're the better side, and the first shot is in from the other side".

"Paris know that we are not easy to play".

Get French Football relay an RMC report that states Thilo Kehrer is set to play at right back, with Marquinhos poised to turn out in the midfield.

"What do I expect?"

"I can not say", Tuchel said. "That means we have to be prepared for different scenarios".

PSG know a win on Wendesday will leave them needing just a point from their final group game against Red Star Belgrade to ensure qualification to the knockout phases of the Champions League.

When asked what Tuchel could do to replicate the Serbian side's success, Klopp resorted to a bit of humour to deflect the question. "Maybe you can ask me for advice on how to win finals.that would be amusing as well, eh?"
