Two days after losing to Monaco in Ligue 1 (3-2), PSG trained this week at noon at the Camp de Lodge. Ander Herrera, hit in the calf, was present, but far from the group, just like Marco Verratti (quadriceps). On the other hand, Mauro Icardi participated in the whole session.
The last training session is on Monday (16:00), before Leipzig’s admission to the Champions League on Tuesday night (21:00, on RMC Sport 1). That is why it is possible to see Ander Herrera and Marco Verratti in the group. On the other hand, their term seems difficult. The last moment of the staff will be presented at the end of the last training to make a decision.
Kneeling this fall after being sacked by Covid-19 in early September, Mauro Icardi has not played since October 2. He has played just four games this season, all in Ligue 1 (two goals, at Reims). His return offers an additional offensive solution for Thomas Tuchel and PSG, whose hospital is starting to shrink. If Juan Bernat (knee) is absent for many more months and Tilo Kerr suffers from pubalgia, Julian Draxler (thigh) and Idris Guye (thigh) could continue next week.
“Final” for PSG
With just three points from three games in Group X (victory over Basaksehir, two defeats against Manchester United and Leipzig), PSG will play very well against Leipzig on Tuesday night. “We are able to win. It is a final,” said Thomas Tuchel about this meeting with the German club. “We will prepare it as a final.”
