PSG star Neymar is set to make his return off the bench against his former side Barcelona in the second leg of their Champions League Round of 16 clash.
The 29-year-old has not featured for the French champions since the beginning of February with an adductor problem causing him to miss the first leg of the tie where a brilliant performance from Kylian Mbappe has the Parisians going into Wednesday’s clash with a 4-1 advantage.
Speaking last week, Maurizio Pochettino said that the Brazilian was “on schedule for his recovery” and hoped he would be fit to play against his former side where he won the Champions League in 2014/15.
PSG welcome Barcelona to Paris with four away goals which means that Ronald Koeman’s side will have to perform a miracle comeback similar to the one in 2017 where they thrashed PSG 6-1 at Camp Nou.
Barcelona are coming off a good run of form having won the last four games by at least a two-goal margin having scored a total of 11 goals across five games since going down to PSG.
