PSG are currently top of the Ligue 1 table after three straight victories, but the excitement surrounding this match has nothing to do with seeing if the side can continue their winning streak.
Leo Messi's arrival at the Parc des Princes was the talk of the footballing world this summer. The iconic player was forced to leave Barcelona, his boyhood club, after they were unable to re-sign him due to financial constraints. The Argentine forward instead opted to sign for PSG and until now hasn't pulled on a shirt and taken to the pitch for his new club.
That's changing, as after a couple of weeks of training with the squad Messi is ready to feature against Reims. In fact, Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar are all listed in the 22-man squad making the trip to Reims. For Neymar, it will be his first appearance of the season, too. Mbappe and Neymar get the start; Messi begins the match on the bench.
Reims will face an uphill battle to take anything from this match. The club have started the season with three straight draws and while they'll look to cause an upset and spoil the party atmosphere, it's likely that PSG's all-star team will prove too much to handle.
