On the eve of his trip to Bayern Munich’s lair, PSG unveiled its group for this Champions League quarter-final first leg, scheduled for Wednesday at the Allianz Arena (9 p.m. on RMC Sport 1). Danilo Pereira is one of them. Unlike Mauro Icardi and Layvin Kurzawa.
PSG will not be able to count on all its living forces to challenge Bayern Munich, this Wednesday at the Allianz Arena, in the quarter-final first leg of the Champions League (9 p.m. on RMC Sport 1). As often at the time of major European meetings, several players are missing. And not the least. Affected by Covid 19, Marco Verratti and Alessandro Florenzi are in solitary confinement. The two Italians are not part of the group selected by Mauricio Pochettino for the great trip to Bavaria.
Mauro Icardi either. Undermined by physical problems this season, the Argentine striker still suffers from the thigh. Layvin Kurzawa, he is in delicacy with his calf. This wave of absences adds to the suspension of Leandro Paredes. On the other hand, Paris will be able to count on Danilo Pereira to face the best team in Europe. The one who deprived him of the supreme title last summer in Lisbon. Hit in the left calf in selection, the Portuguese midfielder is finally available. It remains to be seen whether he will be able to start in the lair of the German champions.
Three young people from the center as reinforcements
The club of the capital must hope so seen the sad face displayed against Lille, Saturday at the Parc des Princes, in the shock at the top of the Ligue 1. Without rhythm, without genius, sometimes without envy, Paris left the Mastiffs l ‘take to his garden and take the lead in the championship (0-1).
Rather worrying before rubbing shoulders with the best team in Europe. To complete his reduced workforce, Pochettino has chosen to summon three young people from the training center in Munich: striker Kenny Nagera (19), defender Abdoulaye Kamara (16) and attacking midfielder Ismaël Gharbi (16).
