Excluded in the first half of the Champions League, Idrissa Gueye received two suspension matches.
The UEFA disciplinary committee ruled on Monday on the sanction to be imposed on Idrissa Gueye, who had taken a red in the semi-final first leg of the C1 between PSG and Manchester City (1-2).
The Senegalese midfielder has taken two suspension matches. Which means he will miss the second leg at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday, but also a possible final. A hard blow for the former Toffee, but also for Paris since the vice-champion of Africa was in good shape lately.
Gueye had been shown the way to the locker room for a rough intervention on Ilkay Gundogan. The tackle was spectacular, and we feared the worst for the German midfielder. Finally, the latter got up and was able to finish the match normally.
Facing the Sky Blues, in the absence of his number 27, Pochettino should bet on the duo Leandro Paredes and Marco Verratti as defensive midfielder. The Ile-de-France team should probably again be aligned in 4-2-3-1.
Note that in addition to the sanction imposed on Gueye, UEFA also imposed a fine of 30,000 euros on Paris SG for the late kick-off of last Tuesday’s match.
