The six-time Ballon d'Or winner is therefore in line to play alongside Mbappe and Neymar in the Champions League showdown.

However, despite boasting of an equally star-studded squad, Guardiola has admitted he does not know how to stop PSG stars Messi, Mbappe and Neymar.

Guardiola said as quoted by SunSport.

“What should we do? I don’t know. With this amount of quality, I don’t know how to stop them, they’re so good. When you’ve got this amount of talent altogether it makes it so difficult to control. Defend well when we have the ball and not let them run but it’s so difficult.
“I don’t know if they’re the best in the world – but they’re exceptional, all of them are so good individually, they can combine and connect with each other."
