Paris Saint-Germain manager Thomas Tuchel is without a host of high-profile stars for the Ligue 1 giants’ opening Champions League match of the campaign.
Neymar is suspended for the visit of Real Madrid to the Parc des Princes as the Brazilian serves a ban for questioning the integrity of officials last season.
The Brazilian posted a furious Instagram story back when PSG were defeated by Manchester United in last season’s competition.
Real Madrid: Eden Hazard is back from injury, and that’s a big boost for this team, but it has yet to find consistency since Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure. Going up against former goalkeeper Keylor Navas adds to the motivation, as Zinedine Zidane’s team will look to get off to the perfect start and get back to true contender status.
PSG: No Edinson Cavani or Kylian Mbappe for PSG, and Neymar is out due to a suspension (he’ll miss two Champions League games to start the season). Argentine striker Mauro Icardi joining from Inter Milan and might be asked to do a lot in attack.
