Napoli v Paris Saint Germain: Match Preview, Team News, Probable Line-ups, Form Guide, Prediction
Napoli will host Paris Saint Germain at the Stadio San Paolo in what could be one of the best matches in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League. The first meeting between both the sides ended with PSG earning a last-minute draw as Di Maria scored in injury time to end the match at Parc des Princes at 2-2.
The French league leaders are still undefeated in the league but are yet to reproduce their form in the European stage as they languish at third, 2 points behind league leaders Liverpool.
