Thiago Silva relishing the chance to face Haaland in Champions League

Paris Saint-Germain captain Thiago Silva is determined to stop teen sensation Erling Haaland when his club come up against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.

Haaland has made an outstanding start to his Dortmund career, managing nine goals in six games across all competitions since joining from Salzburg in January.

Speaking to RMC Sport after PSG's enthralling 4-4 draw with Amiens on Saturday, Silva said: "He scores a lot of goals. Nine goals in six games, it's incredible, it's huge.

"I hope that we will be able to be cautious and that he will not score against us, but rather after in the league. But for us it's wonderful to play against a player like that, especially since he's just started his career. He is very motivated, but so are PSG."

The Brazillian further added that they had no fear heading into the game but acknowledged the quality that the German team has in its attack.

"Are we afraid? We have no fear, but we have a lot of respect. I saw the match (against Eintracht Frankfurt), they have a lot of quality in front, they scored four goals, with incredible technique, movements that are difficult to fight," he added.

PSG boast a devastating attacking talent of their own and could be boosted by the return of Neymar, who has not featured since February 1 due to a rib injury.
