Paris Saint-Germain is set for the biggest test of its season as the side will clash with Manchester City in matchday two of the UEFA Champions League group stage.
PSG will not have the likes of Sergio Ramos (calf injury) and Angel Di Maria (suspension) against Manchester City. Still, PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino did note that Lionel Messi will be available for this showdown after the forward missed the team’s Ligue 1 home fixture against Montpellier due to a minor knee injury.
As noted by UEFA’s official website, here is how PSG may line up for this matchup.
Navas; Hakimi, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Nuno Mendes; Herrera, Paredes, Gueye; Messi, Mbappe, Neymar
PSG goalkeeper Keylor Navas has been in promising form as of late and may feature against Manchester City.
As mentioned, Messi will be in PSG’s squad list for this matchup. It would be notable if he were to score his first career goal with PSG against the Premier League powerhouse.
PSG sure would like to pick up a monumental win in this matchup to prove that it is a favorite in this season’s Champions League competition.
