Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk says he is ready for an “unbelievably tough” clash with Paris Saint Germain.

The Holland international skipper went on to say that he feels that Jurgen Klopp’s team need to “play our own game” if they want to come away from the Champions League tie with a positive result.

“We want to win in Paris.” he told

“We’re not going to go there for a draw. We’re not going there for anything else other than trying to produce a good performance and trying to win the game.

“It’s going to be unbelievably tough because they are still unbeaten in the league and haven’t lost at home for a long time.

“I think personally we need to play our own game, try to put them under pressure and stop them from doing what they’re good at, which is playing football. We will see what happens on the night.

“It’s going to be a fantastic game with fantastic players all over the pitch. I am looking forward to it. These are the games you want to play in – you don’t want to be sitting at home watching them, you want to be playing in them. We have the chance to show that on Wednesday night.

“It’s the highest level in Europe. It’s something special. With the fans, it’s something you want to be part of and you want to hopefully win it as well.

“We need to show we’ve learned from our last two away games in the Champions League. I think we will.

“I am very confident we can produce a good performance.” he finished.

Both sides need to come away from the game with at least a point if they want to keep their Champions League fate in their own hands, with Italian club Napoli, who are sat top of the group, taking on Serbian champions Red Star Belgrade on Wednesday evening.
