Charlie Nicholas is backing Paris Saint-Germain to claim a 3-2 win over Liverpool FC in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

The Reds have made a promising start to the Premier League campaign following a return of 33 points from their opening 13 fixtures.

Liverpool FC managed to stay within touching distance of leaders Manchester City at the weekend courtesy of a 3-0 win at Watford.

However, Jurgen Klopp’s side have work to do in the Champions League following a 2-0 loss to Red Star Belgrade in Serbia earlier this month.

Liverpool FC are in second place in their Champions League group but level on points with Napoli, who sit at the top of the group.

PSG are a further point adrift of Napoli but will have home advantage against Liverpool FC on Wednesday night.

The Ligue 1 champions are in first place and 15 points ahead of second-placed Lyon in the French top flight after 14 successive wins.

Former Arsenal playmaker Nicholas is tipping PSG to claim a 3-2 victory over Liverpool FC on Wednesday night.

“I expect Neymar and Kylian Mbappe to be back and PSG know they have to go for it, so I expect a great game of football and loads of goals,” Nicholas told Sky Sports.

“But, purely because they’re at home and they’ve got these superstars knowing they have to make an impact, I’m going for the French side to just win this in a really entertaining game.”

Liverpool FC claimed a 3-2 win in the reverse fixture at Anfield back in September.

While Thomas Tuchel’s side are flying in Ligue 1, PSG have only managed to win one of their last seven games in the Champions League.

The French champions have failed to secure a win in their last five games against Premier League opposition.
