Earlier, Messi was seen training with his PSG teammates ahead of the Reims game. Neymar has also been seen training, who, too, is yet to play this season.

Meanwhile, star striker Kylian Mbappe also trained on Saturday. It would be interesting to see if he plays on Sunday, considering that he is eyeing a move to Real Madrid.

Speaking on the same, Pochettino suggested that there was a chance that the trio could be lined up against Reims on Sunday, while they are also nearly sure of being included in the squad. However, he added that the final decision would be taken on Sunday upon further analysis.
