Bordeaux-PSG: Di Maria too fair, Icardi back

Still a little patience for Angel Di Maria. A hope of finding the Argentine in the PSG group had existed since Monday and his return to collective training. But the capital club takes no risk with its winger, hit in the right thigh against OM on February 7, and still leaves him to rest for a few days. A return is envisaged on Saturday against Brest in the round of 16 of the Coupe de France after a whole week of training.

For the trip to Bordeaux on Wednesday (9 p.m.), Neymar, Marco Verratti, Alessandro Florenzi, Juan Bernat and Kylian Mbappé will be missing. The last city is suspended while the other four continue a phase of re-athleticism (Neymar and Bernat) or care (Verratti and Florenzi). The Italian midfielder resumed the race on Tuesday at Camp des Loges, informs PSG.

Neymar’s situation assessed at the end of the week

For the left side Spain, victim of a rupture of the cruciate ligament of the left knee in September, a “resumption of collective training is envisaged in early April”, says the club of the capital. Finally, the PSG staff will assess at the end of the week the possibility of reintegrating Neymar in the group sessions, a few days before the return match of the knockout stages of the Champions League against Barça (March 10).

Mbappé is suspended for Bordeaux for an accumulation of warnings. While Leandro Paredes, back from suspension, and Mauro Icardi will be part of the trip. The Argentine striker is fully recovered from gastroenteritis.

The probable composition of PSG in Bordeaux: Navas – Dagba, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Kurzawa – Paredes, Gueye – Kean, Rafinha, Draxler – Icardi.
