Messi should start against the Aiglons.
Accompanied by Marco Verratti?
This is a possibility since the Italian midfielder is back in the squad after two absences (against City and Saint-Etienne) due to a thigh injury.
Mauro Icardi is also summoned this Wednesday evening.
The striker resumed training on Tuesday after an embarrassment having forced him to forfeit in Saint-Etienne.
The young Ismaël Gharbi and Édouard Michut are called in as reinforcements by the Parisian staff.
