LIGUE 1 - PSG: Lionel Messi and Marco Verratti back against Man City?
According to information from L'Équipe published on Saturday night, Paris Saint-Germain striker Lionel Messi could well be included in the PSG group that will face Manchester City next Tuesday at the Parc des Princes.
The six-time Ballon d'Or was absent for the reception of Montpellier this Saturday evening (2-0) as part of the 8th day of Ligue 1, in order to calmly resume training after a slight knee injury.
Another big comeback planned for mid-week on the Paris side, still according to the daily: that of Italian midfielder Marco Verratti. The European champion with Italy this summer will resume training this Sunday.
Argentinian coach Mauricio Pochettino had specified at a press conference that he would take precautions with these two returns from injury: “we hope (their return, editor's note) but we must be careful."
