Argentina manager Lionel Scaloni stated that Paris Saint-Germain striker Lionel Messi will play in Wednesday morning's World Cup qualifier against Brazil during his pre-match press conference.

The Argentine had been recovering from a knee and hamstring problem that had forced him to miss PSG's past two matches before the international break, after he was brought off at halftime in the win against Lille.

In Madrid, the six-time Ballon d'Or winner had therapy for his knee, as did compatriot Leandro Paredes, who has also been injured for Les Parisiens recently.

Neymar and Marquinhos will be up against him, with Lyon's Lucas Paquetá also expected to start for the visitors, according to L'Équipe.
