Motta officially out of PSG-Barca

Thiago Motta misses out on a reunion with former side Barcelona as he is left out of Paris Saint-Germain’s squad for Tuesday.

Carlo Ancelotti hinted over the weekend that the Brazilian-born Italian international was a major doubt for the Champions League meeting with Barca due to struggles with a groin injury.

The player has not been passed fit and has been left off of the list of players named by Ancelotti ahead of tomorrow evening’s quarter-final first leg at the Parc des Princes.

Lucas Moura, who was also a slight doubt, has been passed fit and is included in the call.

PSG squad to face Barcelona: Alex, Areola, Armand, Beckham, Camara, Chantome, Douchez, Gameiro, Ibrahimovic, Jallet, Lavezzi, Lucas, Matuidi, Maxwell, Menez, Pastore, Sakho, Sirigu, Thiago Silva, Tiene, Van der Wiel, Verratti
