After losing 4-1 in the first leg to Newcastle, victory against Eddie Howe’s team will automatically put PSG back in contention to qualify from the group, and ex-PSG star David Ginola believes their supporters will have an important role to play, PSG Talk reports

“Now, the public must be present. They have always been there in big moments, but now we will ask them to be even more present.
“A football club is a team, an audience, and a stadium, and for me, this set of things means that if there is unity around this match, it will be a pleasure for everyone. The 12th man isn’t just a ready-made phrase.”

PSG have suffered two defeats in their first four group games this season and lie second in Group F with six points, one point behind leaders Borussia Dortmund.

PSG backed to avenge Newcastle loss

Meanwhile, Injury-hit Newcastle warmed up for their trip to Paris with a 4-1 Premier League victory over Chelsea on Saturday, but they have a difficult task against PSG, Livescore reports.

The Magpies had a fantastic Champions League night on matchday two, thumping PSG 4-1, but they are under pressure heading into Tuesday's return fixture owing to their inconsistent form.

PSG, on the other hand, have had emphatic victories while playing in the Parc des Princes this season in the Champions League, beating Borussia Dortmund 2-0 and AC Milan 3-0, and Newcastle could be their latest victim.
