Verratti and Florenzi to start for PSG

Italy internationals Marco Verratti and Alessandro Florenzi are expected to start PSG’s Champions League semi-final with Manchester City.

The first leg kicks off in France this evening at 20.00 UK time (19.00 GMT).

Florenzi and Verratti have both now recovered from injury, and COVID, and are raring to go.

A third Italian player, Moise Kean, is expected to be on the bench along with Mauro Icardi.

Verratti should be in a trequartista role behind Kylian Mbappé, flanked by Angel Di Maria and Neymar.

Florenzi is likely to be at right-back, with Mitchel Bakker on the left.

PSG (probable): Navas; Florenzi, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Bakker; Paredes, Gueye; Di Maria, Verratti, Neymar; Mbappé
