Each country's league has its own unique and major rivalry of the year. In England it is the Manchester United vs Liverpool game, London derbies, Manchester derby. In Spain, it is El Clasico while in Germany, it is Der Klassiker and the Revierderby. In France, it is Le Classique between Paris Saint-Germain and Olympique Marseille.

Neymar Jr missed PSG's midweek Champions League 3-2 win over RB Leipzig and as announced by the club he had a medical issue but is back on training for the Parisiens and would wish to be in the starting Eleven for tomorrow.

Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappé dazzled in Neymar's absence and even though it was a hard fought victory against the German side, the quality of the goals scored by PSG that day made it appear like a light work of the opponent. Even though the trio including Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappé and Neymar are yet to click.

With Neymar's return to training, it is expected that Mauricio Pochettino will set up his team in the usual 4-3-3 which would mean the trio will lead the line. Lionel Messi is still waiting for his first League goals having scored three goals in the UEFA Champions League already.
