PSG: Neymar and Kylian Mbappe were both injured during international duty but returned to training on Monday, which is a huge boost to the team’s chances. Thomas Tuchel told reporters that both players will be in the starting lineup when the team sheets are released prior to the match.
Liverpool: The Reds have their own injury concerns. Sadio Mane will train with the club on Tuesday and is expected to travel to Paris, the Liverpool Echo reports. With the way PSG gets forward especially with the outside backs, having their speedy winger on the counter could be massive for the Reds. Like Neymar and Mbappe, we’ll have to wait for the team news to see if he plays.
Liverpool and PSG meet in Paris on Wednesday night with both teams aware that a defeat could mean curtains for their Champions League hopes.
The teams’ previous meeting at Anfield was one of the games of the group stages so far with Roberto Firmino sealing a thrilling 3-2 win for Liverpool late on, but neither side have been able to pull out in front with Napoli top of Group B as it stands.
PSG coach Thomas Tuchel is confident that star duo Neymar and Kylian Mbappe will return from injury, and Jurgen Klopp’s defence will have to be at the top of their game with the group hanging in the balance.
