Liverpool will host Paris Saint-Germain tonight at the Anfield for their group C fixture of the 2018-19 Champions League.
With two star-studded teams in action, this match will be an intense affair.
Liverpool were the runners-up, last term. On the other hand, Paris Saint-Germain were knocked out in the round of 16 by Real Madrid.
Here is our detailed pre-match report.
How strong do Liverpool look?
Liverpool have won all of their five Premier League matches and will take to the field brimming with confidence.
Their first Champions League match of the season, being held at the Anfield, will be an added advantage for Klopp's men.
Liverpool have some great players and will press high, but should not squander goal-scoring chances like they have done, repeatedly, in the Premier League.
What about the Parisian team?
Paris Saint-Germain have also had a fantastic start to the season, with five wins and their top stars Neymar and Mbappe rested enough to start fresh in the match.
What PSG should realize is that this match will not be easy for them like their Ligue 1 encounters, and they will have to put their best foot forward if they expect a win.
Some interesting stats to gear you up for the match
Liverpool have won 7 out of their last 12 European encounters against French teams, while PSG have not won even once in their last 4 UCL matches against English opponents.
The Reds boss, Jurgen Klopp has reached the UCL knock-out stages in four out of his previous five campaigns as manager.
This is Paris Saint Germain's 11th Champions League campaign .
Predicted line-ups and TV listing
Liverpool (4-3-3): Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Virgil van Dijk, Robertson, Milner, Wijnaldum, Keita, Salah, Sturridge, Mane.
PSG (4-3-3): Areola, Meunier, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Rabiot, Verratti, Di Maria, Mbappe, Cavani, Neymar.
The match starts from 12:30 AM on Wednesday.
It can be seen on Sony Ten 1 or Ten 2. Fans can also live-stream on the Sony Liv website or mobile application.
Who are the players to watch out for?
The attacking trios of both teams are deadly, to say the least, and a match which features Neymar, Mane, Salah, Cavani, Di Maria, and the likes will surely be a high-octane affair.
Salah, Liverpool's talisman, can light up the Anfield with a superb finish any time and so can someone like Neymar.
Mbappe's speed might cause troubles for the Liverpool's defenders as well.
Firmino's injury worrisome for Liverpool
During Liverpool's Premier League match against Tottenham, Roberto Firmino suffered a horrendous eye injury and for tonight's fixture, he remains doubtful. He is an integral part of the squad, and without him, Liverpool will need to up their ante.
