Attacker Neymar will start on Tuesday at Paris Saint-Germain, which will compete against RB Leipzig in a crucial group match in the Champions League in their own stadium. That says PSG coach Thomas Tuchel on Saturday against L’Équipe. Neymar returned with a raid on Friday, after a three-week period needed for the Brazilian to recover from a hamstring injury. As a result, he also missed his country’s World Cup qualifying matches.
It was not a happy raid. When Neymar entered the field after an hour, it was still 2-1 for Paris Saint-Germain at Monaco. But the home team won 3-2 and is approaching the leader to 4 points. “Neymar? He is determined. Yes, he will start against Leipzig,” the sports newspaper quoted Tuchel as saying.
PSG is only third in group H, 3 points behind Manchester United and Leipzig. The finalist of last season lost 2-1 at Leipzig in early November.
