Charlie Nicholas is tipping Liverpool FC and Paris Saint-Germain to play out a thrilling 2-2 draw in the Champions League clash at Anfield on Tuesday night.

The Reds are preparing to kick off their Champions League group stage campaign in front of their home fans as they bid to try and go one step further in Europe than they did last season.

Jurgen Klopp’s men earned huge amounts of praise last season as they reached the Champions League final before ending up losing to Real Madrid in the showpiece back in May.

Liverpool FC have made a brilliant start to the new season under Klopp and they have won all five of their opening Premier League games to leave them joint top of the table.

The Merseyside outfit are now preparing to welcome French champions PSG to Anfield as they bid to try and establish themselves as contenders in Europe once again this term.

And Nicholas is predicting a high-scoring draw in Liverpool FC’s Champions League opener this week.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Nicholas said: “It is an absolute belter of a game in all honesty. PSG, on their day, are probably as good as you have ever seen and I include Barcelona in that. They just do not quite do it all the time, as regularly as Barca did in the past.

“Liverpool more than deserved to win at the weekend but I do not think it was as sparkling up front as what it has been. Salah is just a little bit edgy and a little bit self-indulgent in certain circumstances, whereas last season his awareness was better.

“There will be so many superstar footballers on this pitch. Liverpool could actually play this like a counter-attack game because PSG are so open, but I am guaranteeing goals here. I am going for 2-2 and Neymar and Roberto Firmino both to score.”

Liverpool FC head into the game on the back of their 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League last weekend.
