Thomas Tuchel's side will be looking to pick up their first points in the Champions League this season in their opening home group game

Paris Saint-Germain will want to win handsomely against Red Star Belgrade as goal difference may become a factor in this season's Champions League 'Group of Death'.

Thomas Tuchel's men have won every game in Ligue 1 so far this season but they slipped to defeat in their opening Champions League fixture.

The French side were beaten late on by Liverpool in gameweek one whereas Red Star held Napoli to a 0-0.

With Napoli and Liverpool facing off in the other match, PSG will see this as an opportunity to make up some ground in the race for qualification.

Perhaps surprisingly Red Star are the team in this fixture to have previously been European champions, lifting the trophy in 1991 after beating Marseille on penalties in the final. 

PSG will be looking to fix that this campaign as they chase their first ever European triumph.

Neymar claims that there is still more to come from PSG, stressing that nobody is playing to 100 per cent yet despite winning every game in Ligue 1 so far. "I'm not at 100 per cent of my fitness, no one is at 100, it's the start of the season and we haven't played many matches," said the forward.

Red Star are also steamrolling their domestic league having won nine and drawn one of their 10 matches so far.

The Serbian side will be massively up against it but, after holding Napoli in their last outing, they may prove to be more of a test than many are expecting. 

If Belgrade are to strike against PSG it is likely to be from Richmond Boakye. The Ghanaian forward has struck 42 times in 51 appearances for the Serbian champions.
