PSG will seek to secure their second victory in a row, this Saturday against Toulouse. For this, it will be necessary to overcome the absences of Mbappé and Neymar.
Paris regained some air in the middle of the week by winning its match in Montpellier (3-1). The team from the capital is again five points ahead of its runner-up in the standings. However, this victory could not be savored as it should be. Injuries to Mbappé and Sergio Ramos spoiled the evening a bit. And they also clouded the horizon somewhat before the clash against Bayern in the Champions League.
PSG facing its doubts
It is in this somewhat heavy climate that PSG welcomes Toulouse this Saturday in Ligue 1. Coach Christophe Galtier knows he can’t use absentees as an excuse. During this meeting against the promoted, it will still be necessary to win, under penalty of weighing down the general atmosphere a little more.
In the absence of the two members of the MNM, it is on the shoulders of Messi that the main hopes of Paris will rest. The Argentinian, who is coming out of a convincing match at La Mosson, is not one to shirk his responsibilities. But, it will be necessary to see how he will come out of it in a layout and animation probably new for him.
For PSG, it is important to conquer the 3 points not only in accounting terms but also for morale. Their adversaries of the day, however, do not intend to make their task easier. Winners of 4 of their last 5 matches in the league and without defeat for seven matches, Montanier’s men move to the Park with ambition. A bit like Reims last week. And we know the rest.
