The two sides that will probably chase the top spot in Group C are destined to face-off against each other at Anfield during the midweek, with Liverpool looking to take on Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League opener.
The Reds have been outstanding in the Premier League so far, securing a maximum of fifteen points with a +9 goal difference, as their last triumph came against Tottenham Hotspur on the road last weekend. Before outclassing the London side, the Merseysiders have clinched two away victories, over Leicester City and Crystal Palace. Additionally, West Ham United and Brighton & Hove Albion have also failed to keep up the pace with Jurgen Klopp’s winning machine even failing to find the back of Liverpool’s net.
The same thing goes for the Parisians, who have already lifted their first trophy this year thanks to a stunning 4-0 win over AS Monaco in the French Super Cup Final. In the French Ligue 1, meanwhile, they have been unstoppable, recording five victories in as many matches and scoring 17 goals in the process. This season, Thomas Tuchel’s team featured in two away matches and outplayed their opponents both times, with Guingamp and Nimes got comfortably beaten in front of their home supporters.
Dejan Lovren, Adam Lallana, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are left out due to injuries, while Layvin Kurzawa and Dani Alves won’t perform for the visitors due to some physical problems.
