Manchester United will be away to Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday night in Paris, as the French champions host United in our Champions League opener.

There were fears about Neymar’s fitness, and that the Brazilian would not start against Manchester United after he was rested in PSG’s game against Nimes.

How, PSG boss Thomas Tuchel had confirmed that Neymar will be available to play Man United.

He said: “Ney(mar) doesn’t have any issue. We talked together, like I did with Kylian [Mbappe].

“We had an honest discussion and I decided to let him rest today. He will be with us tomorrow.

“He will train and get ready for the game against Manchester United. He will be on the pitch, for sure.”

United have a tough group, as they have been placed in the same group as Paris Saint- Germain, RB Leipzig and Turkish side, Istanbul Basaksehir.
