PSG prepare for Liverpool with 4-0 victory

Kylian Mbappe and Neymar watched on from the stands as Paris Saint-Germain prepared for their Champions League trip to Liverpool with an emphatic 4-0 win over Saint-Etienne in Ligue 1 on Friday (Sep 14).

"I know 10", Tuchel said to Canal+ Sport when asked about his selection plans for the trip to Anfield. "I'll talk to the key players and I'll be watching Liverpool's game against Tottenham tomorrow and decide on Monday".

Speaking at a post-match press conference, Tuchel explained the Brazilian's absence.

Edinson Cavani, Angel Di Maria and teenage substitute Moussa Diaby were also on target in a comfortable victory for the champions.

The two sides will go up against each other at Anfield on Tuesday, in the opening group match of the Champions League campaign.

"I said before the game that we would have to be at 110 per cent to get a result in Paris", he told reporters.

"Not yet the 11th and I do not know my game system". "However, I say that whether we play in Nimes, or Guingamp, or at home to Saint-Etienne, every game is hard".

"It was a hard first half and Saint-Etienne played very well".

"We knew PSG were stronger than us but four goals are expensive".

Speaking in the mixed zone at Parc des Princes after the match, midfielder Marco Verratti expressed his happiness at being back on the pitch and teeing Draxler up for his goal, while the Italy global also admitted that he regrets the red card that will keep him out of next week's Liverpool clash. We lost too many easy balls and that gave our opponents solutions.

"It's an important test for us, not decisive but it's good to start with a complicated game".

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