Twenty-three players head to Istanbul on Tuesday morning, where the second Champions League match against Basaksehir awaits them (Wednesday, 6:55 p.m.) and a tense geopolitical context between France and Turkey.
As announced Monday evening on our site, Thilo Kehrer and Idrissa Gueye are traveling, sufficiently recovered from their respective injuries.
Two interesting returns for Thomas Tuchel, also deprived of five members of the group.
Julian Draxler (ischios), Mauro Icardi (knee), Leandro Paredes (thigh), Marco Verratti (thigh) and Alexandre Letellier (Covid-19) are excluded from this Turkish trip.
For the two Argentines, the return to training is planned "this week" according to the club, even if only Icardi should return to the group for the Ligue 1 match in Nantes on Saturday.
Verratti and Letellier will resume "next week", while Draxler is not expected on the field before the return of the international break in November.
Neymar and Kylian Mbappé's teammates will land in Istanbul in the early afternoon.
They are expected at the Fatih-Terim stadium in Basaksehir at 8:30 p.m. (6:30 p.m. in France) for a final training session.
Thomas Tuchel's press conference will take place at 7.45 p.m. (5.45 p.m. in France).
The Parisians are obliged to win this match, a week after the initial defeat against Manchester United at home (2-1).
Basaksehir lost in Germany to RB Leipzig (2-0).
