In the last Champions League matchday, one man, who goes by the name of Zlatan, stood out head and shoulders above the rest, with a masterful performance en route to bagging four, three of them quite spectacular, goals.

Come Tuesday night, when Paris Saint-Germain host Anderlecht, all eyes will be on the French side again, hoping to witness yet another jaw-dropping performance of the highest order.

PSG have been one of the dominant teams in the group stages so far, picking up a perfect nine points from three matches while also entertaining the fans along the way.

Laurent Blanc knows a win against lowly Anderlecht, the team that the French side thumped 5-0 in the reverse fixture a couple of weeks ago, thanks to four goals from Zlatan Ibrahimovic, will see them through to the last-16 with two matches remaining. Therefore, the PSG manager is refusing to take the pedal off the metal just yet.

"When everything is going well, we have to be wary of easing off," Blanc said. "If we're not motivated tomorrow [Tuesday], then I don't understand football anymore. With the right result we can be sure of qualifying, and potentially win the group.

"We'll try and field the best possible team, because we've been fighting since the start [of the group stage] to qualify and we now have the chance to book our ticket for the last 16. It may be the most important match of the group stage. Anderlecht conceded five in the first game, so they'll want to make things difficult for us. But rest assured: we have prepared for this match well and we're ready for it."

For Anderlecht, this match will be a matter of just trying to stay afloat in Group C, having failed to pick up a single from three games as yet. Nobody will give them the slightest of chances against PSG, and maybe playing with little or no expectations might work in their favour.

"In football every team plays to win and that's what PSG will do tomorrow -- they won't show any mercy for Anderlecht. After three matches it's going to be very difficult for us to qualify, but anything is possible in football. It's important for us to make amends for the first leg."

Team News: Blanc could decide to rest his two superstar strikers Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani, with the former carrying a slight knock to his knee. "Ibra's injury is not too serious, but could be aggravated if not handled right," Blanc warned. Skipper Thiago Silva could make his comeback from a hamstring strain which has kept him out of action since September.

Striker Matias Suarez is expected to be ruled out for the rest of the season after rupturing his knee ligaments, while Silvio Proto, Ronald Vargas and Guillaume Gillet are also sidelined.

Key men: PSG: If Ibrahimovic and Cavani do not take centre stage then the onus will fall on the likes of Ezequiel Lavezzi and Lucas Moura to take up the mantle.

Anderlecht: Cheikhou Kouyate will need to marshal the rest of his back-four brilliantly if Anderlecht are to stand any chance of stopping the PSG forwards.
