Marco Verratti is recovered from his early-January injury and he came back to training with the group on Wednesday. On Friday morning, though, two PSG players were missing at Camp des Loges: Nordi Mukiele and Presnel Kimpembe.

Verratti appeared in a game for the last time on New Year's game against Lens (1-0) but he is expected back next Sunday, whether that is starting against Reims or coming off the bench in relief or some other midfielder.

PSG defenders Nordi Mukiele and Presnel Kimpembe should remain off the pitch, though, with both missing Friday's training session at Camp des Loges ahead of Sunday's Ligue 1 game at the Parc des Princes hosting Reims.

The group present in the training facilities included every other member of PSG's first team, along with the usual five "elite" titis that have been training with the group since the return to activities after the World Cup.

Keylor Navas took part in the training session although he is not expected to play Sunday, and he might even be already in England as part of an upcoming transfer to Premier League side Nottingham Forest in the next few hours.

Lionel Messi, who was given a few days off of late by PSG, was also present at Camp des Loges and should find himself in the starting lineup next Sunday when PSG host Reims at 20:45 CET.
