Neymar back for PSG after a month out

Neymar is back in the Paris Saint-Germain side who will face Lille in Ligue 1 on Friday. The Brazil forward has been out of action for a month after sustaining a hamstring injury while on international duty. But PSG coach Thomas Tuchel indicated in a pre-match news conference that Neymar was ready to return and he is in the XI to take on fifth-placed Lille.

PSG's walking wounded return

Kylian Mbappé has been passed fit to start in attack with Neymar after recovering from illness.

Keylor Navas is back in goal for the Ligue 1 champions, replacing Sergio Rico, after the Costa Rica international missed PSG's win at Brest last due to a groin injury.

Christophe Galtier's side have won just one of their last six Ligue 1 games while PSG are unbeaten in their 19 home Ligue 1 matches against Lille.
