Messi Seriously Injured

Lionel Messi will not be traveling with his teammates to Monaco this weekend. Coach Christophe Galtier wants to let the Argentina captain rest in the hope that he recovers in time before welcoming Bayern Munich for their UEFA Champions League encounter.

This is obviously news that cannot make PSG fans happy because before that, Kylian Mbappe was also injured and could not participate in the next 3 weeks, including the “life and deɑth” match against Bayern Munich. Thus, the M-M-N trio had only Neymar left in ɑttack when Mbappe – Messi could not play.

This season, PSG still proves their absolute strength in the Ligue 1 arena when they are 8 points behind the second-ranked team, Marseille. However, in the Champions League, PSG unexpectedly finished second in the last seconds after Benfica “crushed” Maccabi Haifa 6-1 in the last match and surpassed PSG thanks to goal difference.

PSG is facing certain disadvantages before the “deɑth bɑttle” with Bayern Munich.

The first leg, PSG will be playing at the home of the Prince’s Park. The French team is very confident about Lionel Messi’s ability to return in the second leg.

Before that, PSG suffered a big loss in ɑttack. Kylian Mbappe suffered a serious injury in PSG’s 3-1 win over Montpellier in round 21 of Ligue 1

“After undergoing medical examinations, Kylian Mbappe was diagnosed with a muscle injury in his left thigh. The player is expected to be out of action for a period of three weeks”, PSG’s announcement on the evening of 2 /2. This means that “Ninja Turtle” is definitely not with his teammates to face Bayern at Parc des Princes.

Before Messi, PSG is also likely to not have Mbappe’s services because of injury

Messi, Mbappe have health problems, This means that PSG may only have the right healthy Neymar to face the German champion. However, at this time, “little Pele” is not in the best form.

Since returning from the World Cup, Neymar has appeared in six matches for PSG and scored only two goals. Not only that, this player also received a red card in the match against Strasbourg. The Brazilian player has just turned into a criminal with a phase to lose the ball leading to PSG’s goal against Marseille.

After the defeat in the French Cup, PSG only have 2 arenas to compete for the title, which is Ligue 1 and the Champions League.

At this time, coach Christophe Galtier does not have many quality options in ɑttack. Carlos Soler was not at his best, and Hugo Ekitike was too young. The absence of two pillars of ɑttack leaves a dilemma for coach Galtier.
