Marquinhos was injured during PSG’s victory on Bayern Munich on Wednesday, in the quarter-final first leg of the Champions League (2-3). The captain will take exams this Friday, on the eve of the trip to Strasbourg in Ligue 1.
Perfect control from the left, followed by a strike placed from the right. Unstoppable. Marquinhos turned into a real center-forward to deceive Manuel Neuer during PSG’s victory on Bayern Munich on Wednesday, in the quarter-final first leg of the Champions League (2-3). Upon receipt of a bright pass from Neymar, the Parisian captain doubled the bet in the box (28th). With rather disconcerting ease. The action is all the more brilliant as “Marqui” carried it out while being injured.

Immediately after his goal, the Brazilian defender was replaced by Ander Herrera, who positioned himself in midfield, leaving Danilo hinged back alongside Presnel Kimpembe. Hit in the right leg, the captain of the capital club was quickly taken care of by the medical staff. A big blow for Paris, even if Danilo provided a heroic interim in the face of the Bavarian assaults.
Pochettino hopes to get him back for Bayern comeback
The seriousness of Marquinhos’ injury now remains to be seen. The 26-year-old will take exams this Friday to find out more and establish a possible downtime. On the eve of the trip to Strasbourg, during the 32nd day of Ligue 1 (5 p.m.). A trip to Alsace that he should miss.
After the Munich feat, Mauricio Pochettino said he hoped to get his captain back for the return leg next Tuesday at the Parc des Princes (9 p.m. on RMC Sport 1). But the deadline promises to be very tight. Can the Sao Paulo warrior be restored in less than a week? All of Paris is crossing its fingers.
