Reims vs PSG - Messi's debut? How and where to watch - times, TV, online
All the information you need on how to watch Reims and PSG play their fourth Ligue 1 game of the 2020-21 campaign at Stade Auguste-Delaune on Sunday 29 August.
The idea of seeing Kylian Mbappé, Lionel Messi and Neymar on the same pitch for the same team seemed unlikely, but this game may make it a reality. Coach Mauricio Pochettino said he had not yet decided if Argentine forward Messi would be included in Paris St Germain's squad for Sunday's Ligue 1 trip to Reims.

Reims vs PSG: Mbappé expected to play
The 34-year-old Messi, who signed a two-year deal with PSG with an option for a third year after his contract with Barcelona expired, has yet to feature in the squad since joining on 10 August.
"We need to analyse and we will decide later," Pochettino told a news conference on Saturday.
PSG said later that the squad would be announced on Sunday morning.
Messi has not played since winning the Copa America with Argentina against Brazil on 11 July.
"He is very motivated. He's a great professional who is adapting very fast to his new team mates and to a new context," said Pochettino.
"He has the capacity to adapt to a new league."
