PSG manager Pochettino is hopeful that Messi will be able to recover from bone bruising for the visit of city-especially with Angel Di Maria suspended. But at the time of writing the six-time Ballon d'Or winner is still high uncertain for the clash.
Marco Verratti and Sergio Ramos are also expected to remain out for the time being, but Layvin Kurzawa, Juan Bernat and Colin Dagba have all returned to training and Gueye is back from a European suspension.
Should Messi not be deemed fit enough to start, Draxler may be given the nod on the right flant, while Keylor Navas could keep Gianlvigi Donnarumma out of the team for now.
Paris Saint-German possible starting line up:
Navas; Hakimi, Marquinhos, Kimpembe,
Diallo; Geuye, paredes, Herrera; Draxler, Mbappe and Neymer.
Manchester city possibly starting lineup
Ederson, Walker Dias, stones, Cancelo; B. Silver, Fernandinho, De Bruyne; Mahrez, Torres, Greelish.
That is the possible starting for both teams.
