A heavyweight contest in what will be the first-ever meeting between these two teams in Europe should be a raucous atmosphere at Anfield.

Both have started their league seasons with perfect records and also have former Borussia Dortmund managers in charge.

The football world will be comparing front threes in today’s contest – Liverpool with Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino [though an injury doubt], and Sadio Mane while PSG have Kylian Mbappe, Neymar, and Edison Cavani.

Liverpool have five European titles to boast about while Paris are a project backed by Qatari billions, seeking to crest the heights of European football.
