90+6' 

FT: Leipzig 2-1 PSG. Last year's finalists suffer a desperate defeat after Di Maria had given them an early lead. The Argentine missed a penalty soon after and from there it went pear-shaped. Nkunku and Forsberg (pen) turned it around for the hosts and PSG had two men sent off late on.

RED CARD! PSG are down to nine men. Kimpembe hacks down Poulsen as he looked to break and deservedly gets a second yellow.

The game is so stretched as we enter the dying embers. Kimpembe denies Poulsen with a last-ditch challenge while at the other end, Kean sees a driven shot well blocked.

Kean breaks on to Di Maria's pass, but can't make anything of it as he charged into the right side of the box. The flag was up anyway.

88' 

PSG have offered very little in this half. It's been Leipzig posing most of the questions. It's a real contrast to how it all started. The visitors were totally dominant and creating openings every time they came forward.

Leipzig want a penalty. Kimpembe appeared to handle it as he looked to defend a ball into the box. VAR checks - it's a penalty!

At the other end, Kean fakes a 25-yard shot, moves it out of his feet and drills a fizzing effort just over the bar.

53' 

Wonderful play by Forsberg. He charges in from the left, twists and then turns before firing over the top.

51' 

Nkunku falls too easily as he looks to get in the end of a ball forward. Kurzawa came across him but didn't do much to affect the Leipzig man.

UEFA STAT: Leipzig have won one of their three games at home to French clubs, losing the most recent by a 2-0 scoreline against Lyon in last season's UEFA Champions League group stage. The semi-final loss to Paris made it three defeats in their last four games against Ligue 1 opponents (D1). Leipzig had been unbeaten in their first three matches against French clubs (W2 D1).

PSG will be disappointed if they go in level at the break. They have had a plethora of chances, but have paid the price for not being clinical.

Deja vu! The hosts gift the ball to PSG deep in their won territory once again. Sarabia sees his shot saved and Kean tucks in the rebounds - but it's offside once again!

38' 

Leipzig's high line is literally in the centre circle. Di Maria runs in-behind on to a simple ball over the top and coolly finds the net. However, he made his move a fraction too early and it's rightly chalked off for offside.

STAT: Leipzig have won nine of their 18 UEFA Champions League fixtures (D3 L6).

Imagine a few Evertonians will be tuning into this match tonight to check on Kean. The 20-year-old scored two EFL Cup goals for the Toffees earlier this season prior to his surprise loan move to Paris. He's got four goals in five for Tuchel's side so far, including doubles against Dijon and Basaksehir.

RESULT: Group H leaders Manchester United have surprisingly lost away to Istanbul Basaksehir. As it stands: United are on six points from three played. PSG and Leipzig have three points from two played, while Istanbul Basaksehir have three from three outings.

DID YOU KNOW? This match marks Tuchel's 50th as a coach in UEFA club competition. The German's record includes matches in charge of PSG, Dortmund and Mainz. It currently stands at: P49 W29 D8 L12. His Champions League tally for the French champions: P21 W13 D3 L5.

19.40 

MENACING MOISE: Kean has netted four times in his last three PSG outings.

19.35 

More from Nagelsmann: "I see the two games against Paris as a knockout tie. It's all about getting more points from these games than they do, so four points from the two games would be good. You don't have another 34 games to make up for bad results (in the Champions League). The pressure is on, but it's a privilege to have that pressure. That means there is something at stake. If it wasn’t, it would be quite boring."

PSG are missing some key men tonight, including Neymar and PSG. Their preparation was further hindered when some of those who are involved in this contest got stuck in a lift!

An interesting stat from the teamsheet: RB Leipzig is the FIRST German team to start a Champions League match without a single German player in its starting XI.

19.15 

Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann: "It is not the worst thing for us that Mbappé and Neymar cannot play. They are outstanding players, and Paris are stronger with them than without them. But we would also be better if all of our players were fit."

Thomas Tuchel: "The game will be totally different from the semi-final. If you compare the 11 players with those we had in the semi-final, it cannot be the same match. We controlled the pace of the game in Portugal, I think Leipzig will defend higher on the pitch because they are at home."
