*📰ZQ95: Neymar⚡ to Be Benched for PSG’s CL Clash with Real Madrid⚔*
Neymar is set to be missing from Paris Saint-Germain’s starting line-up for their Champions League clash with Real Madrid on Tuesday, with Thomas Tuchel dropping the Brazilian to the bench.
No risks are being taken on the South American’s fitness after he returned to domestic action following another injury-enforced break with a place taken up in PSG’s XI against Lille last Friday.
He did, however, look a little rusty and Tuchel is prepared to ease the 27-year-old back onto a European stage.
That decision means that the Ligue 1 champions can stick with the 4-3-3 system that they have been favouring of late.
Any tweaks to that formation, with it possible that four forwards could have been worked into the side, would have forced Tuchel to shuffle his pack.
- The German tactician has opted against doing so after seeing Mauro Icardi, Angel Di Maria and Kylian Mbappe impress as an attacking trident.
