Paris Saint Germaine has a chance to make it straight to the Champions League knockout stages. The side will welcome RB Leipzig at the Parc des Princes in the Group H clash. The match schedules for Tuesday with kickoff at 11 pm.
The hosts have only managed to make it to the top once in their three European games so far. The case is different for RB Leipzig, with six points from two wins in their Group H clashes.
PSG suffered a massive defeat last weekend against Monaco in an entertaining clash of two halves. Kylian Mbappe was clinical in the first half, netting a brace before being rested for Tuesday’s clash by Tuchel. The entry of Fabregas on the second half proved the match changer, with the game ending in a 3-2 Monaco win.
Tuchel sets to put the disappointing result behind them as they hope for a top-two finish in Group H. The side is at risk of falling off before the knockout stages, especially after picking one win and two losses so far.
On the other hand, Julian Nagelsmann’s looks set to put domestic mistakes behind them as they look for another bid for the Champions League. The side had to share spoils against Frankfurt in the weekend fixture. A win this Tuesday will see the side proceed to the knockout stages with a better head to head record against PSG.
