    Champions League debutants Atalanta come up against European heavyweights Paris Saint-Germain in a bid to upset the odds and progress to the semi-finals

    The Italian side have already punched above their weight to get this far – having lost their opening three matches- but they face a side that have not reached the semis since the Qatari takeover, in 2011.

    PSG are deemed to be European heavyweights, but the French side have yet to lift the Champions League trophy, or make it into the final, but they come into this fixture on a high having won the French league cup in July.

    The single-match format is the first competitive game between these two clubs, but with PSG scoring in their last 32 games in the Champions League, a goal-drought is the last thing we expect.

    Thomas Tuchel has joined his growing injury list, after breaking his ankle, but fans will rejoice that Kylian Mbappe could return to action this evening.

    The 21-year-old World Cup winner has recovered from an ankle injury that he picked up during their domestic cup final but is likely to begin the match on the bench.

    However, with an all-star cast at his disposal, Tuchel has every faith that his other players, including star man Neymar, will step up.

    Speaking earlier today, Tuchel said: “He [Neymar] likes the big matches, he likes decisive matches. He’s a player you can trust in the big matches.

    “I’m absolutely convinced he will put on a big performance.”
