PSG still diminished against Monaco

Despite the return of Kylian Mbappé, Paris Saint-Germain must again note notable absences, such as those of Marco Verratti or Mauro Icardi, to face AS Monaco on Friday night.

Thomas Tuchel continues to compose with a group of PSG weakened by the number of absences. While this did not prevent the French champions from beating Stade Rennais on November 7 before the international break (3-0, 10th matchday in Ligue 1), the German coach plays the managers thinking about the confrontation with RB Leipzig next week in the Champions League.

This Thursday at a press conference, Tuchel listed the absentees for the trip to Monaco, this Friday evening as part of the 11th day of the championship. The Italian Marco Verratti must continue his recovery after an injury to the quadriceps and the Argentinian Mauro Icardi is still in a phase of gradual recovery with the group.

The German technician will also have to do without Julian Draxler, Idrissa Gueye, Thilo Kherer and Juan Bernat. On the other hand, he recovers Kylian Mbappé, who we saw this week 30 minutes with the jersey of the Blues against Sweden (4-2, League of Nations), and Pablo Sarabia. Regarding Neymar, Thomas Tuchel considered him uncertain, like Marquinhos and Leo Paredes.
