Paris St Germain's head coach confirmed that two of his star players Neymar and Kylian Mbappe will be fit for their side's crunch Champions League match with Liverpool.

Thomas Tuchel told a news conference on Tuesday (November 27) that Brazilian Neymar and World Cup winner Mbappe are 'fit and ready to go', which should be a boost for the runaway French league leaders.

The two attackers missed PSG's 1-0 weekend victory over Toulouse, leaving it to Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani to score the team's winning goal.

PSG lost 3-2 to Liverpool when the teams met in September through an injury-time winner by Firmino, but mixed results for both sides since leave them eager for a win when they play their Group C match on Wednesday (November 28) at the Parc de Princes stadium in Paris.

Italian side Napoli lead the group on head-to-head, with Liverpool in second and PSG third.

Red Star Belgrade lie in fourth but are also in contention to qualify from the group after a shock 2-0 win over Liverpool earlier this month.
