The supposed Group A weights have been more than just a nuisance so far, having already beaten Leipzig to leave the Bundesliga club without a point before perhaps their toughest game of the round.
A repeat of last season’s 2-1 win over PSG in Germany would be golden for visitors to Parc des Princes, where they lost to a Neymar penalty in the second leg.
An inconsistent start left Leipzig eighth in the Bundesliga ahead of the game, with the Parisians sailing to the top of Ligue 1 after a late victory over Angers this weekend.

News from the PSG vs RB Leipzig team
Neymar will miss the game after suffering from groin pain since returning from international duty.
“The priority is always the well-being of the player,” coach Mauricio Pochettino told a press conference. “Neymar has a little problem which we hope will only last a few days and he will be back in the squad as soon as possible.”
Sergio Ramos (calf) has yet to return to full training and Leandro Paredes (thigh) is out for a month. Angel Di Maria is suspended with doubts over Keylor Navas (muscle), Julian Draxler, Layvin Kurzawa (both sick) and Mauro Icardi (staff).
Jesse Marsch’s Leipzig is without Brian Brobbey (thigh), Marcel Halstenberg (ankle), Dani Olmo (thigh) and Marcelo Saracchi (knee)
Prediction PSG vs RB Leipzig
Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe should have more than enough between them to send PSG back to victory without Neymar. Leipzig is slowly gaining momentum, but it will be too much to ask under the lights of Paris.
