Neymar remains out of the Paris Saint-Germain squad after being overlooked yet again by the French champions for the Ligue 1 match against Toulouse amid talks of the Brazilian forward leaving the club and making a return to Barcelona this summer.
The 27-year-old has found himself in the middle of a transfer saga which has seen the relationship between him and PSG become worse since the end of last season, yet PSG have turned down every offer made by Barcelona to bring him back to Camp Nou.
In the continued absence of Neymar, PSG head coach Thomas Tuchel has started Edinson Cavani upfront with Kylian Mbappe and new signing, Pablo Sarabia, either side of the Uruguayan striker, while Idrissa Gueye has been handed a first start since joining the Ligue 1 giants from Everton.

PSG will be looking to get back to winning ways after relinquishing a 1-0 lead to lose 2-1 at Stade Rennes last weekend, with Rennes going top of the league earlier on Sunday thanks to a 2-0 win at RC Strasbourg in a game which saw Senegal international M’Baye Niang score his second goal in as many games.
How about this @PSG_English team goal against Toulouse 👏
