PSG boss discusses Champions League meeting with Liverpool after breaking club record

PSG boss discusses Champions League meeting with Liverpool after breaking club record

It was a fine win for PSG, who have already scored 17 goals in the league this season, and Thomas Tuchel is the first coach to win his first five league games in charge of the club.

Neymar and Kylian Mbappe both didn't play for PSG against St. Etienne, with Thomas Tuchel resting the former while the latter served a ban for a red card he received before the global break.

Marco Verratti expects Liverpool to present a different type of challenge for Paris Saint-Germain in Tuesday's Champions League opener.

The Reds play Tottenham today in the Premier League in their first big match of the season and while Jürgen Klopp will be focused on beating Spurs first, there will inevitably some thought going the way of the Paris clash midweek.

"I've got ideas (as to his line-up) but I'm still reflecting on them".

After returning from worldwide duty with Brazil earlier this week, Neymar watched the victory over Saint Etienne in the stands with team-mate Kylian Mbappe who was suspended for the match.

The win maintains the French champions' 100% start to the season and keeps them top of Ligue 1.

"They are a team who play very well at home".

Cavani made it two early in the second half after he was pole-axed in the box by Loic Perrin before getting up to slam home the resulting spot kick, and Di Maria netted PSG's third by sweeping the ball home in the 76th minute.

Then Diaby rounded off the scoring after Cavani's swipe at a Draxler cutback had turned into an assist for the teenager.

A Malang Sarr own goal had allowed Rennes to take the lead, but Allan Saint-Maximin equalised before Pierre Lees-Melou's 89th-minute victor for Patrick Vieira's side.

It was good for our confidence ahead of Tuesday's match at Anfield against Liverpool.
