Is PSG vs RB Leipzig on TV tonight? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch Champions League fixture

Paris Saint-Germain face RB Leipzig tonight in the Champions League as Mauricio Pochettino’s side aim to stay above Manchester City in Group A.

PSG beat City 2-0 at the Parc des Princes last time out in the competition as Lionel Messi scored a spectacular goal, his first for the club, in an impressive performance alongside Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.

Although the French side drew their opening match of the group away to Club Brugge, the result lifted PSG top of the standings after the first two rounds of fixtures while RB Leipzig sit bottom and are yet to pick up a point.

The German side have also made a slow start to the season in the Bundesliga but will be out for revenge after PSG defeated them in the Champions League semi-finals two seasons ago.

Here’s all you need to know ahead of the match this evening.
