While we believed his absence was certain, Marco Verratti would finally be selected for the match against Bayern. Marquinhos is too short.
PSG welcomes Bayern on Tuesday evening on the occasion of their Champions League quarterback. For this great continental shock, the Ile-de-France residents should record the return of Marco Verratti to competition. On the other hand, Marquinhos would be forfeited despite the comments made by Mauricio Pochettino at a press conference. The information comes from Saber Desfarges (ex-Téléfoot and RMC).
Marquinhos still too short to resume
The Argentine technician had given hope to the supporters of his training: “I do not know yet if he will be there. We will see tomorrow (Tuesday) how he feels. In theory, he could be in the group, not to start but to enter during the match. We will decide tomorrow”. A hope that did not last too long since the decision not to retain “Marqui” was taken shortly after. The Brazilian did not participate in the training of the day at Camp des Loges.
As a reminder, Marquinhos was injured at the Allianz Arena just after scoring his team’s second goal. The subsequent medical examinations were not really reassuring with a lesion detected in the right adductor. An unavailability of three weeks was even mentioned on Saturday by L’Equipe.
Paris will therefore have to do without its central rear. On the other hand, Verratti should therefore be operational. In any case, his presence in the group would be assured. Pochettino dwelled on his case and that of Alessandro Florenzi: “In principle we did not decide on the team. Marco, it seems difficult to see him start and Alessandro, we have to analyze that tomorrow ”.
In addition to Verratti, PSG would also record the return of Abdou Diallo. Another good news, because the former Monegasque can help out at several posts behind.
Finally, the Parisian coach confirmed that Mauro Icardi remains forfeited because still not recovered from his concern in the thigh.
