Guardiola's Perfect Season, Neymar's Assault On The Throne And Mbappé's Great Doubt

"He will play, I hope he plays for the good of football, "says Pep Guardiola, in one of those phrases so his, when asked if he expects to see Mbappé in the PSG eleven this Tuesday. The Frenchman was seen limping at the Paris airport before leaving for Manchester and that, given that he drags discomfort in the right calf, immediately places the poster of doubt for the duel. But, you already know, before a meeting like this, any injury becomes less. If there is a day for Mauricio Pochettino to take risks with his footballers, this is it.

"One day left. We'll see if he can play, "the Argentine cleared for his part before a duel in which PSG has the obligation to come back in order to qualify for their second consecutive Champions League final. Their collapse in the second half of the first leg in Paris (1-2) puts City in a very advantageous position to play their first European Cup final . With the Premier in their pocket in the absence of one more victory to ratify it mathematically, Guardiola's team is heading towards what may be its perfect season , the one that finally justifies the multimillion-dollar project that Abu Dhabi launched already ago 13 years.

The Spanish coach was able to make rotations at the weekend in his league match against Crystal Palace and arrives at the match without casualties. Pochettino, on the other hand, will not be able to count on Gueye - expelled in the first leg - nor on the still injured Bernat , apart from the aforementioned doubt of Mbappé. If the French finally could not play, Icardi would be his replacement.

"Every Parisian must believe in us," asks Neymar, who is facing his great opportunity to inherit the throne of world football that Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have monopolized for years . To do so, he must command a comeback that seems difficult against the best team in Europe this season.
