If Nasser Al-Khelaïfi had been asked in 2011, the year in which he became president of PSG, which team he would like to have had to win the Champions League, the Qatari would have answered without hesitation that of 2021. The Parisian team has formed a team dream squad, managing to sign Leo Messi (NAK's great dream), retaining Mbappé and forging what is, with Chelsea's permission, the best team in Europe in terms of individualities.
Except for a last minute surprise, Pochettino will line up today the magic trident formed by Messi, Mbappé and Neymar. The three have not yet met on the pitch (against Reims, on Messi's debut, the Rosario came in for Neymar) and the coach will join them for the first time on the pitch. The Parisians travel with almost everything, since Ramos is still injured, Verratti will be out for ten days due to a knee injury and Di María, with three games, and Gueye, are suspended from the semifinals against City.
As to follow: Messi. His debut in the Champions League with PSG. The most anticipated debut of all. He comes to Paris to conquer the long-awaited Orejona, and today he will have his first stumbling block.
