Paris Saint-Germain’s form at home is patchy despite leading the French league by nine points, so coach Mauricio Pochettino must make the most of a somewhat exhausted attack against Leipzig. Neymar is out for a few days due to a minor adductor muscle injury that he recently sustained in an international match.
Pochettino will probably have to do without striker Mauro Icardi, who was allowed to leave training on Sunday for family reasons. He posted a picture of himself on the social networks on Sunday evening in Milan and did not take part in PSG training on Monday.
Leipzig has it under the new coach Jesse Marsch with two defeats in the Champions League and eighth place in the Bundesliga difficult.
The defeat of Manchester City in Paris last month put the English champions under some pressure against Club Bruges. The game on Tuesday marks the first meeting of the teams. The Belgian team already drew at home against PSG.
City should be able to fall back on goalkeepers Ederson Moraes and Gabriel Jesus, who flew to Belgium last week and were not used in the 2-0 win against Burnley on Saturday .
Liverpool travel to Atletico Madrid for their third straight win in the group and are likely to welcome Brazil internationals Alisson Becker and Fabinho on their late return from the national team. The players flew straight to Madrid on Friday instead of returning to England where they would have been quarantined, missing out on Liverpool’s 5-0 win at Watford on Saturday. Liverpool also scored five goals in their last Champions League game – 5-1 in Porto. Liverpool won the final in 2019 at Atletico’s Wanda Metropolitano Stadium, but lost there in 2020 on the way to a round of 16 knockout.
AC Milan is unbeaten in Serie A, but has played in its first appearance in the Champions League group stage since 2013 lost both opening games. Zlatan Ibrahimovic is back after an injury on a visit to Rossoneri in Porto, but goalkeeper Mike Maignan has had an operation on his left wrist and will be out until January.
Borussia Dortmund will face each other at the top of the group in a match between the teams two wins against Ajax. Dortmund is firing from all cylinders again after star striker Erling Haaland scored two goals in a 3-1 win against Mainz on Saturday after a muscle injury. The defense also seems more reliable after a few early season fights and Dortmund is one point behind the top in the Bundesliga.
Sheriff, the surprising group leader, visits Serie A champions Inter Milan to win against Shakhtar Donetsk and Real Madrid to continue. Inter are winless and goalless in their first two games and celebrate their first Italian league defeat of the season at Lazio. Inter’s last three Champions League games ended in the group stage.
