The news was confirmed officially by the PSG's official media release on Monday, Neymar and Mbappe are back in squad.

The official club statement read: " Nursing a calf niggle, Lionel Messi will not make the game against Benfica."

PSG and Benfica are level on points in their UCL points table, unbeaten in all three games so far.

Lionel Messi reportedly felt discomfort in his leg in PSG's last week UCL encounter vs Benfica that ended 1-1.

In Messi's absence, PSG will look to Neymar and Mbappe to provide the attacking spark in final third vs Benfica.
