Tuchel Confident of Neymar and Mbappe Fitness for Liverpool Tie
Paris Saint Germain manager Thomas Tuchel is confident that Neymar and Kylian Mbappe will be fit for his team’s crunch Champions League group game against Liverpool on Wednesday.
Neymar hobbled out of Brazil’s 1-0 friendly victory over Cameroon last week with a groin injury and sat out PSG’s 1-0 win over Toulouse on Sunday evening, alongside fellow forward Kylian Mbappe.
But Tuchel expects to have both men fit for a must win match against Liverpool at Parc des Princes on Wednesday, “I am more optimistic than [on Friday] about Neymar and Kylian,
they will be able to train on Monday.”
Tuchel also revealed that Dani Alves is in the final stages of his recovery from a knee ligament tear incurred back in April, “In theory [Alves] would not play on Wednesday as he has just returned, but if you asked him he would tell you 'Yes'. He has returned to the team and he could play a match of that level against Liverpool.”
