PSG vs Juventus: line-ups predicted, team news confirmed, Champions League injury latest today

P

Aris Saint-Germain coach Christophe Galtier has plenty of squad to choose from ahead of his first Champions League game in charge.

As part of arguably the glamor of the group stages, PSG welcome Juventus to the Parc des Princes, with Galtier preparing to become the next manager to try for Europe’s top prize.

Vitinha’s summer signing is the only doubt after picking up a knee injury as Lionel Messi prepares for what could be his final Champions League campaign.

The Argentine will almost certainly be flanked by Kylian Mbappe and Neymar, with the former playing down any suggestion of a breakup with the latter.

“Our relationship has always been like this. There are times when it’s a bit cold, other times when it’s warmer.

“Sometimes we’re like best friends and other times we talk to each other less but there’s always respect,” Mbappe said in a press conference ahead of PSG’s Group H match.

Juve, meanwhile, have a number of injury problems.

“This morning Pogba trained for the second time and stopped and decided to have surgery. We will realistically get him back in January,” the Juve boss said.

Paul Pogba has now been effectively ruled out of the World Cup with the midfielder scheduled for knee surgery, while manager Max Allegri has also confirmed that Angel di Maria will miss a meeting with his former side.

PSG predicted XI (3-4-2-1): Donnarumma; Ramos, Marquinhos, Kimpembe; Hakimi, Veratti, Ruiz, Mendes; Messi, Neymar, Mbappe

Juventus predicted XI (4-3-3): Perin; Danilo, Bonucci, Bremer, Sandro; Locatelli, Paredes, Rabiot; Cuadrado, Vlahovic, Kostic
