PSG on Abbey Road: L'Équipe recreates famous Beatles cover

Tonight Paris Saint-Germain visit Liverpool in a highly-anticipated encounter against Jürgen Klopp's Liverpool in their first group game of the 2018/19 Champions League. And French daily L'Équipe have taken a very famous image linked to their hosts as their front page.

PSG stars become The Beatles

In place of John Lennon, Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney and George Harrison, the paper has placed (from right to left) Thomas Tuchel, Neymar, Kylian Mbappé and Edinson Cavani. As well as the iconic image of the street crossing outside the studios in London, the image has also been adapted to show the grass of a football pitch up the road. The appropriate title chosen is "A path to cross", ahead of the match against last season's runner's up and top scorers.
