 The Belgian forward told Telefoot: "Favourites against PSG? Not yet. It will be a very complicated match against a team that has a lot of talent, playing at a certain level for several years.

"A team with world champions, players who have won many trophies and have a lot of experience. It's going to be a tough match, but a good test for us to see where we are."

Lukaku added: "PSG have a fairly large squad. I think they have a lot of players who can make a difference. We prefer to play against the best players in the world, so the level can rise. I hope he will recover well. If he is there, it will be a good match for the fans."
