PSG are recovering from the world. This Saturday, he receives at the Parc des Princes Brest on behalf of the 21st day of the championship. This is the first home game of the year, where he is undefeated in all competitions. This is the first in a series of three meetings, with the hosting of Reims (January 23) then Nice in the Coupe de France (January 31).
While Mauricio Pochettino had struggled to form a group last week in Lyon (1-1), many players affected by the virus in recent weeks are back, present this Friday during the quarter of an hour open to the media as the whole week.
Gianluigi Donnarumma, Angel Di Maria, Julian Draxler, Danilo Pereira, absent in the Rhône due to the virus, normally performed the session in the company of Kylian Mbappé, Marco Verratti, Sergio Ramos or Presnel Kimpembe. Leo Messi is still working on the sidelines, not yet recovered from his Covid.
Di Maria holder?
The Argentine star will not be able to play PSG – Brest this Saturday, just like Neymar, still in care after his big sprained ankle. The elements engaged in the CAN in Cameroon are also missing: Achraf Hakimi (Morocco), Abdou Diallo and Gana Gueye (Senegal).
In the league, Paris remains on two consecutive draws, twice 1-1, in Lorient and Lyon. He keeps eleven points ahead of his runner-up, Nice, which receives Nantes this Friday evening. Angel Di Maria should take his first steps with PSG this Saturday in 2022 while Georginio Wijnaldum was incorporated into a baroque attack line in Lyon, posted on the right with Mauro Icardi and Kylian Mbappé on his left.
In the absence of Messi and Neymar, El Fideo will be responsible for leading the offensive sector. Other changes could come after another disappointing performance from the midfielder made up at Groupama Stadium of Verratti, Ander Herrera and Leandro Paredes.
