Paris Saint-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino has talked about Sergio Ramos in the pre-match conference. He said,
I don’t know. It is important to see his progress. One thing is to be able to train and it’s another to be at the level to be competitive, it is not the same.
However, there is no injury issue for PSG. So Pochettino will have a full-fit squad ahead of the match against Manchester City.

Manchester City will miss the service of their midfield maestro, Kevin de Bruyne. He has been tested Covid positive. Moreover, Jack Grealish has missed three matches for Manchester City. But he could return today. While speaking about Leo Messi, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola said,
It’s so difficult. Sometimes when he has the ball, he doesn’t know what he is going to do – so imagine, he has to know what he is going to do. There is one player you can say ‘no’, is he going to the right or the left. When he has the ball, not even he knows exactly what he is going to do. I cannot tell the players what he (Messi) will do.
