Nouveau riche PSG takes on 5-time champion Bayern Munich

"Many of our players are capable [of taking penalties]", Emery told journalists at a prematch news conference.

The Bavarians will be up against the formidable three-pronged attack consisting of Neymar, Edinson Cavani and Kyian Mbappe.

The Brazilian forward became the most expensive player in football history when he move from Barcelona to the French capital in a £198 million deal, and his wages reportedly match the exorbitant fee.

The two players argued in the 2-0 win over Olympique Lyonnais nine days ago when Neymar tried to take a penalty instead of Uruguayan Cavani, who eventually had his spot-kick parried away by the goalkeeper. "I have a lot of respect for them, their team is a lot better and their forward line has nothing to envy from Bayern, Real Madrid or Barcelona, they are at the same level".

"We have taken an important step to be part of these teams".

PSG have aspired to challenge meaningfully for UEFA's elite club competition each season since the Qatar Investment Authority's takeover of the club in 2011.

Speaking separately to PSG's website, Verratti said "Our dream is, of course, to win everything, but we all know that football is a hard sport and that you don't win trophies by giving interviews".

According to Spanish newspaper Sport, the LaLiga leaders have not given up on the 25-year-old, despite the Reds rejecting a bid of more than £100million from the Catalan side during the summer transfer window.

"When I was in Spain, I watched the biggest teams in Europe ... buy the best players".

Paris Saint-Germain have been in fine form of late and they boast an impressive record in past meetings with Bayern Munich on home soil, but we, nonetheless, expect the Bavarians to do well at Parc des Princes. He offers us versatility.
