Neymar and Kylian Mbappe could be fit to face Liverpool in the Champions League next week, according to Paris Saint-Germain boss Thomas Tuchel.
PSG confirmed the pair had undergone medical examinations on Wednesday after they both had to be substituted in their respective international fixtures during the week due to injuries.
The potential absence of Brazilian Neymar, who sustained a “right adductor strain” and French World Cup winner Mbappe, himself suffering a “bruised right shoulder”, would hand Liverpool a boost ahead of their trip to Paris on Wednesday.
Tuchel has confirmed that neither player will be available for PSG’s Ligue 1 clash against Toulouse this weekend but says they are in contention to return against Liverpool.
“We will not take risks with Neymar and Mbappe, tomorrow they won’t be available,” he said.
