Reims vs Paris Saint-Germain team news
PSG are likely to be boosted by the involvement of both Messi and Neymar for the first time this season, although they are unlikely to form the attacking trident that the world of football has been eagerly awaiting.
Kylian Mbappe is unlikely to feature as the details of a potential move to Real Madrid are being finalised, while also missing for the visitors are Mauro Icardi, Sergio Ramos and Colin Dagba.
The hosts are without Arber Zeneli, Mousa Doumbia, Fraser Hornby and Anastasios Donis who are all injured.
Reims vs Paris Saint-Germain preview
All eyes will be on Messi as he pulls on the PSG shirt for the first time and plays his first ever league match outside of Spain’s La Liga.
The Argentine ended as the top scorer in the Spanish top flight last term finishing the campaign strongly after a rocky start.
It remains to be seen in what state Messi is in both physically and mentally after a tumultuous summer, but there seems little doubt that he will be capable of having an impact on Sunday’s game.
Playing alongside his friend and former Barcelona team-mate Neymar, expect Messi to flourish and there should be plenty of interest in backing the 34-year-old to score on his debut.
Reims vs Paris Saint-Germain tips & predictions
Mess is offered at 4/11 (1.44) to score at anytime and at 2/1 (3.00) to break the deadlock.
There could also be some interest in backing him to score two or more goals at 6/4 (2.50) something he did on nine occasions in La Liga last term.
