A good reason to smile for PSG

If PSG must deal with two new injuries when facing Manchester United, the Paris group also records four welcome returns.

Doctors of PSG have no respite. Monday’s session has indeed left two new players on the floor. Both feeling muscle pain, one in the thigh, the other in the hamstrings, Pablo Sarabia and Mauro Icardi have indeed joined the infirmary and are off for new examinations to determine the duration of their unavailability. The Argentinian, victim of a sprained knee in early October, had just made his comeback …

But the capital club also recorded good news. Absent last weekend for the reception of Bordeaux (2-2), Marquinhos and Keylor Navas trained normally and are in the Parisian group which flew in the direction of Manchester where PSG will play its European future on Wednesday night against the Red Devils.

Another comeback, that of Thilo Kehrer, who seems to be rid of his groin pain and who is making a comeback after only three weeks of absence. An uncertain time, Layvin Kurzawa is also very present.

Conversely, Julian Draxler and Juan Bernat are still unavailable while Kays Ruiz and Jese Rodriguez do not appear in the group, this time by choice of the coach.
