PSG head to Anfield with an extra day to prepare and a fully rested Neymar in their armoury.

"We've won five times and that shows we still have a hunger to continue winning", said Tuchel.

PSG warmed up for their opening European game on Tuesday (8pm) away to Liverpool with a 4-0 thrashing of Saint Etienne on Friday night.

Tuchel rejected the idea PSG's Ligue 1 games are of any less significance than their Champions League ones.

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. "However, I say that whether we play in Nimes, or Guingamp, or at home to Saint-Etienne, every game is hard".

"We knew PSG were stronger than us but four goals are expensive. Saint-Etienne was a good rehearsal", said the French champions' boss.

It was good for our confidence ahead of Tuesday's match at Anfield against Liverpool. "We are confident, though".

"We played with seriousness and intensity". Julian managed to score a great goal, because my pass was not that great - it was really impressive.
