Marco Verratti and Alessandro Florenzi could come out of their isolation on Sunday linked to their contamination with the coronavirus. It is therefore possible that PSG can count on them for the Champions League quarter-final second leg against Bayern Munich, scheduled for Tuesday evening (exclusively on RMC Sport 1).
For Saturday’s trip (5 p.m.) to Strasbourg, counting for the 32nd day of Ligue 1, Paris Saint-Germain will not be able to count on Marco Verratti or Alessandro Florenzi. But they could well be back for the Champions League quarter-final second leg against Bayern Munich (Tuesday 9 p.m. on RMC Sport 1).

Contaminated last week by the coronavirus, Marco Verratti and Alessandro Florenzi should be released from isolation on Sunday. They will undergo a battery of cardiology tests, in accordance with UEFA’s Covid-19 protocol. They will also undergo a PCR test to verify that they are no longer contagious. The two players could return to the squad on Monday, if the results are conclusive.
Marco Verratti has in any case already resumed the race at home. He feels ready to come back with the rest of the group to play this second round.
Pessimism for Marquinhos
This potential good news faces more negative information. Marquinhos, who was injured after scoring the second goal in Munich, suffers from a small grade 1 injury to the adductor. PSG should not take the risk of making him play and greatly aggravate his injury against Bayern.
