PSG receives Nice this Saturday (5 p.m.) during the 25th day of Ligue 1. Mauricio Pochettino can count on the return of Keylor Navas, but will have to do without Marco Verratti and Rafinha in midfield.
Last rehearsal for PSG this Saturday (5 p.m.) in Ligue 1 against Nice, before the trip to Camp Nou next Tuesday (9 p.m. on RMC Sport 1) to challenge Barça in the round of 16 first leg of the Champions League. As expected, Mauricio Pochettino will have to deal with several absent including Neymar, Angel Di Maria and Marco Verratti.
For Neymar, as for Angel Di Maria, the packages are already recorded for Tuesday also. The first was hit in the left adductor and will miss the next four weeks, after a blow received during the Coupe de France match on Wednesday against Caen. The Argentinian left him last Sunday against OM and suffers from his right thigh. Also affected, in the hip, against the Marseille club after a shock against Dimitri Payet, Marco Verratti is also unavailable to face Nice.
Simons and Michut still in the group
Absent at the last minute against Caen due to a muscle alert, Rafinha will also miss today’s meeting. Juan Bernat, Colin Dagba and Timothée Pembélé are the other absent from the group announced by Mauricio Pochettino.
Good news nonetheless for PSG with the return of Keylor Navas, absent since the end of January and the victory against Montpellier, where he had been hit in the groin. Two young people are in the Parisian group for the match at the Parc des Princes this Saturday. The two midfielders Xavi Simons and Edouard Michut, both aged 17, follow the convocations. The Dutchman came into play against Caen while the Frenchman remained on the substitute bench.
Currently 3rd in the standings after 24 days 3 points from LOSC, provisional leader, PSG has no right to misstep this Saturday.
