Lionel Messi is poised to make a brief Paris Saint-Germain debut after being left on the bench for their Ligue 1 game at Reims.

Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, the latter heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid, were both included in Mauricio Pochettino’s starting XI at the Stade Auguste-Delaune.

Pochettino opted to leave Messi out of PSG’s win over Brest last time out despite the former Barcelona star training with his new team-mates following his sensational exit from Camp Nou.

However, he confirmed to Amazon Prime on Sunday that Messi would at least play a cameo role against Reims.

He said: “He’s [Lionel Messi] is going to be on the bench.

“He arrived late in the pre-season. He’s working hard, he can have a few minutes today to start helping the team.”
