Paris Saint-Germain manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has confirmed that Lionel Messi will be part of his squad to face Reims on Sunday evening.
Messi is in line to make one of the most highly-anticipated debuts in the history of European football.
“We have not yet announced the squad,” Pochettino told a press conference on Saturday, adding that all the ‘magic trio’ “will certainly be among those named, we will see if they can play from the start of the match.”
Messi is yet to feature for PSG, following his free transfer from Barcelona.
It will be the first season in over 20 years he will not be pulling on the Blaugrana shirt.
Messi spent his entire senior career at Camp Nou, scoring 672 goals and providing 305 assists in 778 games.
Without him, PSG have started the 2021/2022 domestic season well, beating Troyes, Strasbourg and Brest.
