Paris Saint-Germain looks to remain unbeaten in Group F play when it heads to GSP Stadium in Cyprus to take on APOEL in each team's third Champions League group stage match. 

PSG is coming off a 3-2 win at home over Barcelona on Matchday Two, while APOEL tied Ajax at home, 1-1. PSG is leading Group F with four points and is 1-0-1. APOEL has one points after starting 0-1-1.

This will be the first meeting between the sides since first-round play in the 1993-94 European Cup. PSG advanced 3-0 on aggregate, with a 1-0 win in Nicosia and a 2-0 win in Paris.

PSG will be without defenders David Luiz and Marquinhos as well as forward Ezequiel Lavezzi, all out with thigh injuries. Forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic and defender Thiago Silva are doubtful for the match; Ibrahimovic is nursing a heel injury while Silva has an injured hamstring.

APOEL will also be down a few men. Midfielder Stathis Aloneftis has a back injury, defender Tasos Papazoglou is recovering from a stomach injury, and goalkeeper Tasos Kissas is out with an unspecified ailment. Doubtful for the match are defenders Carlao (knee) and John Arne Riise (unspecified), forwards Tomas De Vincenti (thigh) and Pieros Sotiriou (calf), and midfielders Gustavo Manduca (hamstring), Nuno Morais (back) and Vinicius (groin).

PSG’s goals have come from Luiz, Blaise Matuidi, Marco Verratti and Edinson Cavani (one each) in Champions League play. APOEL's lone goal was scored by Manduca.
