Cape Town - Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery believes they have nothing to fear against a star-studded Paris Saint-Germain side ahead of Wednesday's Champions League tie.

The veteran Frenchman, who returns to the country of his birth to face the Parisians in what could prove to be a decisive Group B battle, says that Bayern have more than enough weapons to match some of the superstars in their opponents' line-up.

Currently Edinson Cavani, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe lead the attack. The trio proved their worth in demolishing Celtic 5-0 in their opening Champions League match, while the German champions disposed of Anderlecht 3-0.

Nonetheless, Ribery takes the view that Carlo Ancelotti's side have everything to play for at the Parc des Princes.

"It's always nice to come back home. The people here have been really friendly but we have an important game ahead of us in Paris. We have to put in a good performance," he told the club's official website.

"These are two great teams with a lot of great players who like to attack and will no doubt try to score plenty of goals. But, I think we have to play with a clear mind, as well as lots of character and personality.

"We needn't feel any fear here, as we have a quality team with a lot of great players. We can beat Paris Saint-Germain here!"

Kick off is at 20:45.
