Right back Thomas Meunier, who missed last weekend's 4-1 home win over FC Nantes, has been passed fit and is back in the squad.

PSG boast a 100% record, with 17 goals scored and none conceded.

The 21-year-old will be bidding to further show his qualities when he takes to the pitch at the Parc des Princes, with Celtic looking to cause what would be a big shock by winning in the French capital.

"To keep our position, we need to win here".

"I am sure that tomorrow is going to be hard but we will speak with the players about the importance of the three points".

Emery: PSG focused for 'difficult' game against Celtic

A draw in France in the penultimate Champions League group stage game could guarantee the Scottish sides place in European football beyond Christmas, but PSG will also be out to secure top spot in Group B. Because of this, we are group leaders. "We want to tread a path that gives us the best possibilities". And Celtic will play against us with a different face.

Rodgers put his side's task into context when he admitted that they could be in for another heavy defeat.

Celtic will drop into the Europa League if they stay ahead of the Belgians, who are yet to pick up a point and visit Glasgow on 5 December. Of course, we are a better team but in any 90 minutes, the situation can change.

"Our away performance in Anderlecht was very good".

"If you don't get the result, for us it's about taking pride in the performance, really, so that's something that we hope that we can achieve".
