Sadio Mane

Sadio Mané is a doubt for Liverpool’s clash with Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday night after being struck down with illness.

The Liverpool ace is due to be assessed this morning by the club’s medical team to determine if he can be included in the squad that is set to depart for France this afternoon.

Reds’ boss Jürgen Klopp is due to host a pre-match press conference at the stadium later today and Mané was also due to take part in the usual Q&A session with journalists.

Meanwhile, PSG boss Thomas Tuchel is optimistic that Neymar and Kylian Mbappé will be available for selection to face Liverpool.

Tuchel said: “We will not take chances but we have the possibility that they will play against Liverpool on Wednesday. I think it’s possible.”

A win for the Reds would guarantee qualification into the Champions League knockout stage.
