They’re up against a seemingly unbeatable Liverpool side, but if they pull off the miraculous, Partey could see his 86 OVR increase.

Liverpool – Sadio Mane (90 OVR)

There’s not much that needs to be said when it comes to Liverpool this year – the Merseyside club are cruising in the Premier League and are yet to be beaten.

We fully expect Mane’s card to upgrade after this round of the UCL.

Liverpool – Joe Gomez (85 OVR)

After Joel Matip’s injury, the young Joe Gomez had to step up – so far the English centre half has excelled alongside Virgil van Dijk.

Borussia Dortmund – Jadon Sancho (OVR 87)

Jadon Sancho has been on fire for Dortmund this year – with 13 goals and 14 assists in the Bundesliga this season, he could be the difference in Dortmund’s clash against PSG.

PSG – Marquinhos (OVR 88)
