Some warning lights went off in Paris Saint-Germain and the Argentine national team after replacing Lionel Messi with ten minutes remaining in the match against Benfica at the Estadio da Luz. In his place entered the Spaniard Pablo Sarabia.
The medical studies have brought peace of mind to both the PSG coaching staff and the team led by Lionel Scaloni. “After Leo Messi was discharged from hospital on Wednesday night with a calf discomfort, he is continuing treatment after reassuring tests. A new point will be raised on Sunday.” The club said in a statement.
“Leo Messi will not play against Reims, but he will resume training on Sunday morning. Kylian Mbappe has an angina, but he will travel to Reims”, as coach Christophe Galtier admitted in the press conference prior to this commitment. The club decided to keep Albiceleste until he arrives in the best conditions for Tuesday’s match against Benfica at Parc des Princes.
In this way, Rosario will not be in his commitment on Saturday against Reims at Stade Auguste-Delaun II, within the framework of the 10th history of the French League. Paris Saint-Germain leads the competition with 25 units, two ahead of Olympique de Marseille, which is its largest number. Instant stalker. Then Lorient (22) and Lens (21) appear. For his part, his opponent has only 7 points and because of the goal difference he appears in the relegation zone to the second category of French football.
* The play in which Messi was disturbed
“He put up a sign saying he wanted to go. In the last act he was tired. He left because he was tired and because his new teammate was more exciting,” the coach admitted after 1-1 against the Portuguese. La Bolga, who scored his team’s goal against the Portuguese, came from a series of important matches with the Parisians and the Argentine national team (he played two friendlies in the United States).
The moment of injury occurred after a long control, during which he tried to reach the ball in front of goalkeeper Odysseus. At the bottom, he ended up stopping, limping two steps, looking up as if he was moaning, and threatening to touch his leg. Annoyance prompted him to ask for change.
Messi is having a great season with the capital, scoring eight goals and 8 assists in 13 performances. In the domestic championship, he took third place in the scorers’ list with five victories and the most assisting, along with his friend Neymar, with seven victories.
Regarding the rest of the injured in PSG, Presnel Kimpembe continues his rehabilitation at the training center, Renato Sanchez is back in individual training and will join the group next week and Nuno Mendes who has a problem with his left hamstring. He’ll be back in about three weeks.
