While Neymar is out again, Lionel Messi is expected to return to the starting line-up. The former Barcelona man scored his first PSG goal in the last Champions League game against Manchester City and hopes to make it two in a row here.
Christopher Nkunku, on the other hand, has managed to hit the target 8 times in the last half dozen matches for RB Leipzig. It is probably safe to say that they will both be looking to add to his tally here once again.
