Sergio Ramos has been included in Paris Saint-Germain’s traveling squad ahead of the Champions League match in Manchester City on Wednesday.
The Spanish legend has been plagued by injuries since leaving Real Madrid for the French giants this summer and has yet to make his debut for his new team.
Ramos competed to play against Nantes on Saturday but was not risked, but RMC Sport now reports that he is in the squad for the important match against City.
The pair sit in the two qualifiers in Group A, with City one point ahead of PSG. Mauricio Pochettino’s team beat Pep Guardiola’s outfit when they faced each other earlier in the season, but a draw against Club Bruges and RB Leipzig has cost them while City have made no other mistakes.
Elsewhere, Marquinhos, Gianluigi Donnarumma and Presnel Kimpembe are expected to be available again, so Ramos may not come along if Pochettino has his first-choice midfield pair fit and ready.
Kylian Mbappe missed training on Monday morning with illness but has been included in the squad and is not expected to miss on Wednesday. Julian Draxler and Rafinha are the only confirmed absences.
It is the latest meeting between City and PSG in the Champions League. The two clubs met in the semi-finals last season, where City triumphed thanks to an extensive 4-1 overall victory.
The Champions League is the main goal for PSG this season. Despite the years of heavy investment, they still have not won Europe’s biggest prize, and came closest to 2019/20 when they were beaten 1-0 by Bayern Munich in the final.
PSG’s latest victory over Nantes took their unbeaten streak to seven games, although their away form has been suspect in recent weeks.
