Newcastle are bottom of Group F but know a victory at PSG, who they memorably beat at home, will keep their chances of progressing to the knockout stage of the Champions League alive.
Eddie Howe’s side have failed to build on their stunning 4-1 home triumph over PSG, losing back-to-back games against Borussia Dortmund, but they head to Paris in good shape after an emphatic victory over Chelsea in the Premier League on Saturday.

There were five goals in the first game between these two sides and with the amount of serious attacking ability set to be on show at the Parc des Princes, there could be a goal glut again on matchday five.
PSG have goal threats from the likes of Randal Kolo Muani, Goncalo Ramos and, of course, Kylian Mbappe, and they are the top scorers in the group with seven goals so far.
Kolo Muani has four goals in all competitions this season, Ramos has weighed in with three and World Cup runner-up Mbappe has struck a superb 16 in 16 games so far.
PSG have scored at least three goals in seven of their last eight games in all competitions but have also conceded the most goals (six) in the group to suggest the Magpies will be given opportunities in the French capital.
Howe’s side have failed to find the back of the net in three of their four European assignments this term, when drawing 0-0 at AC Milan and then going down to nil both home and away to Borussia Dortmund, but they haven’t had a problem scoring in the Premier League, where only Manchester City can better their tally of 31 goals so far.
With Alexander Isak back fit and quickly getting up to speed with a goal against Chelsea on Saturday, Newcastle will look to cause the home side plenty of problems as they also have Joelinton, Anthony Gordon, Miguel Almiron and Bruno Guimaraes ready to offer creativity and finishing power in the final third.
Mbappe is the obvious choice when looking at the anytime goalscoring options.
The France international remains one of the most feared frontmen around and his two goals in the Champions League this season both came at home, in the matches against Dortmund and Milan earlier in the group.
The striker comes into this clash with eight goals in his last seven matches overall, including a penalty in Friday’s 5-2 home success over Monaco.
Gordon has stood out for the Magpies at times this season and the former Everton man now has five goals following his effort in the weekend win over Chelsea.
He heads into this match with plenty of confidence and his pace and creativity has been a real weapon for the Magpies on a regular basis recently.
Gordon has had 30 shots in total for Newcastle this season, of which 14 have been on target and he’s managed at least one effort on target in three of his last four games.
PSG have confirmed Marquinhos, Warren Zaire-Emery, Nuno Mendes, Presnel Kimpembe and Keylor Navas will all be absent due to injury for the visit of the Magpies.
Newcastle still have a lengthy injury list ahead of the trip to Paris with Sven Botman, Dan Burn, Elliot Anderson, Harvey Barnes and Joe Willock unavailable, while Jacob Murphy, Callum Wilson and Matt Targett are all also out.
Sandro Tonali is suspended but Sean Longstaff is hoping to shake off an ankle problem.
PSG have won their last six home games in all competitions, conceding just two goals in that spell - both of which came in the 5-2 win over Monaco on Monday.
Newcastle have won just two of their nine away games in all competitions this season.
