Verratti is Now PSG’s All-Time Leader in Champions League Appearances

For the first time in nearly two months, Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti featured in action with the team. PSG manager Thomas Tuchel subbed in the veteran midfielder during the second half of the team’s UEFA Champions League return group stage fixture against RB Leipzig.

Verratti dealt with a notable quad injury after returning from the October international break. The Italian midfielder gradually made progress over the past month to recover from the injury. And finally, he was given the green light to be available for PSG in a fixture, which Tuchel took advantage of by providing him with over seven minutes of playing time against Leipzig.

This appearance for Verratti was also notable for the fact that he made PSG history. He broke a tie with former PSG defender Thiago Silva to become the club’s all-time leader in Champions League appearances.

The 61 Champions League appearances for Verratti span over nine seasons with the team. If he continues to prolong his stay with PSG, he could possibly reach the 100 Champions League appearances mark, which would be an impressive feat to accomplish.
