PSG’s Kylian Mbappe, Lionel Messi named in Champions League squad to face Bayern Munich – Citi Sports Online

Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi have been named in Paris Saint-Germain’s squad for Tuesday’s Champions League round-of-16 first leg against Bayern Munich at the Parc des Princes.

Mbappe, who picked up a hamstring injury on Feb. 1 and was expected to be ruled out of action for three weeks, will start on the bench against Bayern, sources told ESPN.

The France international took part in training in the last two sessions. Messi and influential midfielder Marco Verratti are also back from injuries.

PSG have been in poor form recently, losing 3-1 at Monaco in Ligue 1 on Saturday for their fourth defeat in their last 11 matches. Bayern have not suffered defeat since September.

“We need to do less talking, work hard, analyse things properly,” PSG coach Christophe Galtier said.

“Of course our players have their pride, so do I. Yes, we’re worried [about facing Bayern]. But we must keep a clear head.”

Galtier on Saturday said he would take “zero risk” with Mbappe.
