Beaten by Bayern Munich (0-1) but qualified for the semi-finals of the Champions League, PSG must quickly recover from its emotions.

In addition to Stéphanois determined to do as well as in the first leg last January (1-1) for the first of Pochettino on the Parisian bench, PSG will have to do without several of its executives. In addition to the suspensions of Neymar, Leandro Paredes and Idrissa Gueye, the Ile-de-France club will also be deprived of Keylor Navas. The Costa Rican goalkeeper is left in care due to shoulder pain. Affected in the calf against Bayern, Abdou Diallo will not resume until next week. Ditto for Brazilian defender Marquinhos.
On the good news side, Mauro Icardi as well as Italians Marco Verratti and Alessandro Florenzi can claim a place in the group and could regain the grounds. Regardless of the team aligned by Mauricio Pochettino against the Greens, the Parisians’ priority remains victory and three decisive points for the final sprint.
“We can not stop to celebrate the qualification against Munich, the competition is already resuming, said the Argentine coach on the eve of challenging Saint-Etienne. We have a very important match on Sunday to reduce the gap with Lille . These are three very important points for us. “
The objective is clear for PSG this Sunday: win and fall on the Mastiffs. The suspense is total at the head of the championship.
