Paris Saint-Germain have been handed a boost as both Kylian Mbappe and Marco Verratti have been named in the travellingsquad for their upcoming Champions League tie against Atalanta.

The World Cup winner was initially ruled out for three weeks, and Thomas Tuchel was not optimistic of a prized asset making a full recovery in time for the trip to Lisbon before a friendly win against Sochaux on Wednesday.

"The deadline is short, super short," the PSG boss told reporters."We spoke with the doctor today and we decided to meet again on Saturday to see what phase he is in and if it is possible that he is on the bench against Atalanta.

"But I do not expect too much."

Tuchel also revealed that Italian midfielder Verratti's participation in Europe was in doubt, as he missed the clash with Sochaux due to a calf injury suffered in training.

However, it has now been confirmed that both men will travel to Portugal for the meeting with Atalanta on Wednesday night.

Neymar, Marquinhos, Angel Di Maria, Thiago Silva, Mauro Icardi, Thilo Kehrer andPresnel Kimpembe have also been restored to the squad after being rested for the midweek warm-up fixture, butLayvin Kurzawa will sit out the game due to a thigh issue.

PSG will be aiming to reach the semi-finals of the Champions League for the first time since 1994-95, with the winners of the last-eight encounterset to be rewarded with a tie against either Atletico Madrid or RB Leipzig.

Tuchel's men saw off Borussia Dortmund 3-2 on aggregate in the round of 16, while Atalanta beat Valencia 8-4 over two legs to reach the quarter-finals for the first time in their history.

Goalkeepers:Keylor Navas, Sergio Rico, Marcin Bulka, Garissone Innocent
