PSG name squad for Atalanta clash

PSG have named their squad for the Champions League quarter-final with Atalanta, including Marco Verratti and Kylian Mbappé.

They face off in a knockout round on Wednesday August 12 at the Estadio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica.

This is the opening clash in a Final Eight tournament, so bringing the players along does not necessarily mean they are fit for the first match, but rather are hoping to participate in the competition going forward.

There are serious doubts around Verratti – who sustained a calf injury during training this week – and Mbappé following a badly sprained ankle.

That is also why Angel Di Maria is named in the group, despite the fact he is suspended against Atalanta.

The Paris Saint-Germain squad will have their Champions League base in Faro.

PSG squad for Champions League: Bakker, Bernat, Bulka, Choupo-Moting, Dagba, Di Maria, Diallo, Draxler, Gueye, Herrera, Icardi, Innocent, Kalimuendo, Kehrer, Kimpembe, Kurzawa, Marquinhos, Navas, Paredes, Pembele, Mbappé, Mbe Soh, Neymar, Rico, Ruiz, Sarabia, Thiago Silva, Verratti
