Team News: Neymar makes Paris Saint-Germain debut

Team News: Neymar makes PSG debut

World-record signing Neymar starts for Paris Saint-Germain in their trip to Guingamp.

World-record signing Neymar has been named in the starting XI for Paris Saint-Germain in their trip to Guingamp this evening.

The former Barcelona striker was finally cleared to feature for Unai Emery's side this weekend after completing his £200m move to the French capital at the start of the month.

The Brazilian displaces Javier Pastore in an otherwise-unchanged XI from the side that defeated Amiens 2-0 in the opening weekend of Ligue 1 action last Saturday.

Edinson Cavani and Angel di Maria join Neymar in the frontline of a 4-3-3 formation, with Marco Verratti, Thiago Motta and Adrien Rabiot in midfield.

Alphonse Areola continues between the sticks, while Dani Alves, Marquinhos, Thiago Silva and Layvin Kurzawa keep their places in the back four.

For the hosts, Antoine Kombouare makes just one change from the 3-1 victory at Metz last weekend, with Etienne Didot coming into the midfield in place of Lebogang Phiri.

Ludovic Blas and Moustapha Diallo miss out on a place in the starting lineup despite both finding the net last weekend as Kombouare sticks with Jimmy Briand and Yanis Salibur up front.

Abdoul Camara, Didot, Lucas Deaux and Marcus Coco make up the midfield, while there is an unchanged back four of Jordan Ikoko, Christophe Kerbrat, Jeremy Sorbon and Pedro Rebocho in front of Karl-Johan Johnsson in goal.

Guingamp: Johnsson; Ikoko, Kerbrat, Sorbon, Rebocho; Camara, Didot, Deaux, Coco; Salibur, Briand
Subs: Caillard, Diallo, Blas, Phiri, Eboa Eboa, Thuram, Giresse

Paris Saint-Germain: Areola; Dani Alves, Marquinhos, Thiago Silva, Kurzawa; Verratti, Motta, Rabiot; Di Maria, Cavani, Neymar
Subs: Trapp, Meunier, Kimpembe, Matuidi, Nkunku, Guedes, Pastore
