Marco Verdi will not play against Manchester City in the Champions League this Wednesday evening (9pm). The Italian international midfielder, who was beaten in the quadriceps during pre-match training, was unable to take his place.
The Parisian staff waited before verifying this result, hoping that at least this Wednesday evening, the attention and time provided would be sufficient, but from the early morning, he was not really in any delusion. This absence carries considerable weight due to Verdi’s role in PSG’s ball releases and the fear it provokes in the opponent.
Paretz holds the rope for the role of guard
At a news conference on Tuesday, Ilke Gundogan, who knew nothing about Italy’s package, acknowledged how elusive this player was. Verdi, who was sidelined for four weeks due to a hip injury, resumed Saturday (3-1) against Nantes. Holder, he played 75 minutes. In his place as a guard, Leandro Parades, better technically gifted than Danilo Pereira, seems to be holding the rope until Mauricio Pochettino decides to go 4-2-3-1.
This news is not the only bad side of Paris. Georgino will not be able to play with Vijnal this Wednesday evening either. Pain in the back of the knee during training on Tuesday prevented him. Attempts to retrieve it were in vain. The Dutch international midfielder is not one hundred percent, not far off, and establishing him would represent a significant risk to PSG’s staff. Ander Herrera, who has a large range of races, can therefore benefit from the role of torchbearer.
