As the undisputed leader and the only team in the Big Five to count their matches by wins, PSG will host Montpellier at the Parc des Princes in an effort to maintain their good form, but with the confirmed absence of its most decisive player: Lionel Messi.
The Argentine, who presented a bone contusion in his left knee in medical analysis after the game against Lyon, is still low. This was reported by the French club itself, which added that tomorrow there will be an update on its status, all with a view to having him back in the game against Manchester City.
“As you have seen in the medical report, it has already started running. We are waiting for its evolution for the next few days, hopefully next Sunday we can report that the evolution is good& rdquor ;, said Mauricio Pochettino at a conference on the state of ’30’.
With Neymar and Mbappé as more than usual headlines, the doubt would be in the name of his companion. Everything indicates that Mauro Icardi will be, once again, the forward reference in the Parisian offensive. Pochettino also spoke about the striker: “he is a player who contributed a lot to the clavicle injury. Little by little he is returning to the team. It has been decisive in the match with Lyon. It is a more and more important alternative in the team game & rdquor ;.
