Messi will play against Manchester City?
There has been a lot of talk about the lifting of Lionel Messi long before the end of the match against Olympic Lyon. It was later revealed that PSG coach Mauricio Pachettino had picked up Messi for his own good. Messi was suffering from knee pain. That is why he was out of the field in the next match of the French league against Mess. Without Messi, PSG lost to Messi 2-1.
Not only Messi, now it is seen that Messi will be out of the field for the same reason against Mompeli.
The PSG themselves have confirmed the matter with an official statement. Messi may not need a strong team like PSG to win against the 10th ranked team in the French league.
But that is not a matter of concern. PSG will take on Manchester City in a crucial Champions League match on Tuesday night. PSG last time out of the semifinals of the same competition after losing to City.
Although Pachettino is optimistic, Messi will be seen against City. Although the match fitness has not come yet, the Argentine star has started light practice in the meantime, said Pachettino. “Yes, we are hopeful Messi will play against City,” he said. Messi has run lightly today. We will examine her physically and see what her condition is. I hope he improves. ‘
Pachettino hopes to get a positive message by Sunday after checking Messi’s health. “Let’s wait for him to come,” he said. We have to be careful. Let’s see what happens in the next few days. Hopefully, I will be able to give a positive news by tomorrow, Sunday. If all goes well, he will definitely play. ‘
But whether Messi plays or not, compatriot Anhel Di Maria is not playing against City. The Maria were banned for two matches after seeing a red card in last season’s match against City. He is still carrying the punishment. That is why Pachettino will play Di Maria against Mampelia today.
PSG will not get Angel Di Maria, a key player in the team against Man City. The Argentine midfielder will not be able to play Tuesday’s match after showing a red card in the semi-finals of the last edition of the best competition in Europe.
“Let’s see what can be done,” Pachettino said. There are several different ways and strategies. It remains to be seen whether any player can give the team the right balance. Mauro Icardi contributed a lot to the team before he got injured. After recovering, he showed great performance again (in the last match). Of course, he has given us an option in the attack.
PSG did not get off to a good start in the Champions League. La Parisians drew with Club Bragg in the first match of the group stage. Man City are top of Group A after beating Leipzig 6-3 in their first match.
