PSG and RB Leipzig will face each other at Parc des Princes on Tuesday for Matchday 3 of the UEFA Champions League 2021/22. The home side will be looking for its second win in the tournament, while the visitors are in need of points.

Meanwhile, the visitors are at the bottom of the standings with no wins in their first two matches. First, they lost to Manchester City (6-3) and then were defeated by Club Brugge (1-2). On Saturday, they drew 1-1 to SC Freiburg. 




PSG’s possible lineup 

Angel Di María is suspended for this match, while Sergio Ramos and Neymar, who returned from international duty with a minor injury, have been ruled out. Apart from that, Mauricio Pochettino will have all of his players available, including Lionel Messi.

This could be PSG’s lineup for the match: Gianluigi Donnarumma; Achraf Hakimi, Marquinhos, Presnel Kimpembe, Nuno Mendes; Georginio Wijnaldum, Idrissa Gueye, Marco Verratti; Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, Julian Draxler.
