Andries Jonker’s side have it all to do going into the final two matches of the group stage, after drawing their previous game with Ludogorets in Sofia.

Preslav Petrov’s late equaliser saw the Bulgarians snatch a point in a match that saw Reiss Nelson score for the Gunners.

With four games played, we're third in Group A with five points, one point behind second-placed Basel, while Paris Saint-Germain are at the summit with 10 points.

Despite having the best defensive record in the group and only losing once - at home to Basel - we need to win our final two games to progress.

When these two sides last met in Paris, it ended goalless. A 3-0 win over Ludogorets is our only victory in the group stage thus far.


PSG arrive in north London on the cusp of sealing qualification, having amassed 10 points from four matches so far.

It is a run that has seen them score 15 goals, conceding just four times.

The Parisians reached the final of last season’s competition and will prove a stern test for Jonker’s side, and the visitors come into the game off the back of a late turnaround which saw them win 3-2 away at Basel.


Stephy Mavididi says his confidence is soaring after scoring in his last two outings.

The 19-year-old frontman converted a late penalty as the under-23s won 2-0 at Tottenham in Premier League 2, as well as finding the net for the England Under-19s against Luxembourg.

Mavididi is yet to get off the mark in the Uefa Youth League, but his strength and pace will be crucial in building attacks against PSG.
