Victim of an ENT infection, Kylian Mbappé is uncertain for PSG’s match against LOSC, Friday at 21h, at the Parc des Princes. But the tricolore striker might not be the only big star of Mauricio Pochettino to miss this meeting.
Mbappé and Messi absent from training this Thursday
Under pressure after the disappointing match against Olympique de Marseille, last Sunday at the Stade Vélodrome, Mauricio Pochettino must absolutely reassure Friday night against LOSC, in the opening of the 12th day of Ligue 1. But the news is not good at Paris Saint-Germain. Already without Marco Verratti (hip), Leandro Paredes (hamstring) and Ashraf Hakimi (suspended), the PSG coach could also be deprived of Kylian Mbappé who suffers from an ENT infection.
And as if that wasn’t enough, it’s Lionel Messi who did not show up for training of the day, on the eve of confronting Jocelyn Gourvennec’s men. Against all odds and without any reason being communicated by the Parisian staff, the six-time Ballon d’Or was also absent from training this Thursday, according to information reported by the daily The Parisian.
After Kylian Mbappé, the Paris SG could therefore do without Lionel Messi face the Mastiffs. A huge blow in prospect for the club of the capital, but especially for his coach Mauricio Pochettino who has exhausted his capital patience and confidence in the Red and Blue. While PSG should publish very next its traditional medical point of eve of match, another big blow is emerging in Paris.
The likely composition of PSG against LOSC
On the eve of the match, The Team is already interested in the likely team composition of the Paris Saint-Germain with the packages already confirmed and the uncertainties. At the right side post, with the suspension ofAshraf Hakimi, Colin Dagba is strongly tipped to hold the post. In the middle, Georginio Wijnaldum is well set to compose the pair with Idrissa Gueye in the absence of Marco Verratti and Leandro Paredes. In front, if Mbappé was the only uncertainty, Messi’s situation will now force Pochettino to review his plans to find the one who will accompany Angel Di Maria, Neymar Jr and Mauro Icardi.
PSG’s likely team against Lille: Donnarumma – Dagba, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Diallo – Gueye, Wijnaldum – Di Maria, Messi or Draxler, Neymar – Icardi.
