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
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.For
