PSG-Metz: Verratti and Kehrer absent

Tuesday, Thilo Kehrer and Marco Verratti had remained in care, at the Camp des Loges. Thomas Tuchel had clarified that the German defender was uncertain, without giving information on the nature of his physical problem. He feels adductor pain on the left side, according to the club, and is absent for the reception of Metz this evening (9 p.m., Téléfoot). The Italian midfielder also suffers from the adductors, but on the right side. He will also miss the meeting.

These two absences are added to a long list on the side of PSG. Neymar, Leandro Paredes and Layvin Kurzawa, all three expelled on Sunday during the Clasico, are of course absent. The disciplinary committee of the LFP must study their file during the meeting which begins at 6 p.m. Kylian Mbappé, who has resumed individual training after his positive coronavirus test with the France team, is also forfeited.

Keylor Navas, absent against Lens because of Covid then hit in the back against Marseille is on the other hand in the group. Thomas Tuchel indicated on Tuesday that Rico would start if the Costa Rican was not 100%. Mauro Icardi and Marquinhos are making their return as planned after their fortnight linked to the coronavirus.

To fill these absences, Thomas Tuchel called on several young players: midfielders Maxen Kapo, Kays Ruiz and Bandiougou Fadiga, defender Timothée Pembélé and striker Arnaud Kalimuendo. Spain striker Jesé is also making his comeback, in a team that has not scored in the last three games.

The PSG group (21 players):

Navas, Rico, Bulka – Bakker, Bernat, Dagba, Kimpembe, Marquinhos, Diallo, Pembélé – Herrera, Gueye, Draxler, Ruiz, Fadiga, Sarabia, Kapo – Icardi, Kalimuendo, Di Maria, Jesé.
