“We know it is a very important game for us, for the group and to achieve a victory we have been chasing since Paris. We can’t get it wrong again and must do the maximum to achieve the win,” Paredes told Sky Sport Italia.

Both these sides are rock bottom on zero points, having lost to both PSG and Benfica so far this season.

Max Allegri has continually urged his men to be ‘calm’ and not get too frenetic trying to break down very defensive teams, which could be valuable advice this evening.

“The most important thing will be to keep calm, pass the ball and we’ll find the breakthrough.”

Argentina international midfielder Paredes arrived late in the transfer window after securing a loan with obligation to buy from Paris Saint-Germain.

“I am slowly settling in, getting at 100 per cent, as it had been a long time since I’d played this many games. I am getting in shape and hope to give my contribution to the team.”
