Lionel Messi has recovered from a knee injury due to which he missed the matches with Metz and Montpellier, but that does not guarantee the Argentine a place in the starting lineup in tomorrow's match against Manchester City, at least for now.
There are no fans of the football game, except for Manchester City fans, who would not like to see the trio of Messi, Neymar, Mbappe against Pep Guardiola's team, but Mauricio Pochettino did not answer the question whether Leo will start the match at Prince's Park.
"Messi will be in the protocol, but I can't confirm anything about the starting lineup until the day of the game," Paris Saint-Germain coach told reporters. The legendary Barcelona football player did not want to give a hand to Pochettino eight days ago in the match against Lyon, after his countryman took him out of the game.
"Messi is in a similar situation as Veratti. He works well, he trained with the team," the former Tottenham coach remained enigmatic, and did not give reporters an answer to the question of whether Gianluigi Donnarumna will be in the starting lineup, although the eminent Italian journalist Gianluca di Marzio claims that this will be the case.
"We have great goalkeepers, and they all have to adapt to the requirements of the professional staff. We are extremely pleased with their performance so far."
Finally, there were a few words about Manchester City.
"We are playing against a team led by the best coach in the world. This club, like us, fantasizes about winning the Champions League. In the process, City may be ahead of us a little bit, but we are aware that anything is possible," Pochettino had only words o praise for Guardiola The clash in Paris is on the program on Tuesday at 9 pm, and if PSG lose, they will remain on only one point from two rounds, since they drew with Club Brugge at the premiere.
It has been noticed since the beginning of the season that PSG is not at the top level, although the results do not show that. They are maximally effective in the French championship, but on the field it doesn't look so convincing.
They had a disappointing start in the Champions League, and they will have to change some things compared to last game if they want to win. Given the quality they possesses PSG should have no problem going through the group stage, but obviously it won’t be easy at all
