Verratti in PSG squad for Man City trip

11 April 2016, 21:57

Paris - Marco Verratti was included in the Paris Saint-Germain squad for Tuesday's Champions League quarter-final, second leg away to Manchester City, the French club announced on Monday.

Italian playmaker Verratti is a key component of Laurent Blanc's side but has been troubled by a groin problem and has not played since February 20.

After last Wednesday's first leg, which ended in a 2-2 draw at the Parc des Princes, Blanc said there was no chance Verratti or Javier Pastore would be fit for the return in England.

However, Blanc later suggested that he was hopeful Verratti could make a miracle recovery in time to feature.

Pastore, who has been troubled by a calf problem, was also included by Blanc, who kept his options open by naming 22 players in his squad for the trip.

PSG will be without David Luiz and Blaise Matuidi, who are both suspended after being booked in the first leg.
