Manager Thomas Tuchel delivered some final tactical instructions before his team welcome their Serie A opponents to Parc des Princes.
Group C is finely poised at present with Napoli top on four points and PSG and Liverpool both on three after two games.
The French giants come into the game on the back of a sensational 5-0 Ligue 1 victory over Amiens on Saturday that maintained their 100 per cent start to the domestic season.
Mbappe, Marquinhos, Adrien Rabiot, Julian Draxler and Moussa Diaby were all on target as the Parisians clinched their 10th win from 10 games.

On Sunday, Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu dismissed reports linking Neymar with a return to the Nou Camp.
The Brazilian left the club 14 months ago for PSG in a world-record deal. But after being left disappointed and disenchanted with the quality of Ligue 1, Neymar is reportedly keen to return. Bartomeu has since ruled that out though.
‘Neymar left and is not expected to return to Barca, there are no plans to bring him back,’ he said.
‘No one is scheduled to be signed in January, unless we are told something that would see a change in plans.
‘This is a smaller squad because there are B players who have given strong signals that they can be on the first team.’
