Paris Saint-Germain have named a 24-man squad to take on Atalanta in the revamped UEFA Champions League quarter-finals, with Kylian Mbappe and Marco Verratti both on the list.

Kylian Mbappe sustained a dismal ankle injury during PSG’s 1-0 victory over Saint-Etienne in the Coupe de France final and has been a doubt for the upcoming Champions League clash against Atalanta.

However, Thomas Tuchel’s hopes of leading his side to European glory has received a massive boost, as the French starlet seems to have managed to overcome the injury setback on time.

The French forward could not have timed his return to the pitch any better, especially considering PSG failed to find the net in 180 minutes of football without him on the field.

According to Football Italia, the 21-year-old forward has made it to Tuchel’s list of players for the Champions League quarter-finals alongside Marco Verratti.

Mbappe has racked up five goals and five assists in seven European outings for PSG this term, which makes him the most productive player on the roster.

Meanwhile, Verratti picked up a calf injury during a training session earlier this week, and his participation at the Wednesday showdown is still covered with a veil of mystery.
