The Geordies arrive in Paris, desperate to seek a point after finding themselves at the bottom of Group F. Two consecutive defeats against Borussia Dortmund mean that Eddie Howe's men need to salvage at least a point to keep their hopes alive of making it out of the group.

As for PSG, the team is currently in the second spot with six points and will be eager to avenge the loss suffered at St James' Park earlier in the campaign. Kylian Mbappe-led PSG were pumped 4-1 by Newcastle with goals from Fabian Schar, Dan Burn Sean Longstaff and Miguel Almiron shocking the Parisians.
