The capital club will be largely weakened on Wednesday at Matmut Atlantique, especially in the offensive sector. 



PSG will be able to count on two ghosts in Bordeaux on Wednesday.

Returning from suspension, Leo Paredes is indeed available for this meeting of the 28th day of Ligue 1. Ditto for Mauro Icardi, recovered from gastroenteritis which deprived him of the trip to Dijon (0-4) last Saturday.

Mauricio Pochettino is nevertheless deprived of many players, starting with Kylian Mbappé, suspended for accumulation of yellow cards.

"He's one of the most important players, and it's not easy to replace him," admits the Argentine coach, who turns 49 this Tuesday.

But we trust the team, and our strengths must be collective.

Like in Dijon, and even if we have strong individualities, this is the opportunity to show that we are a strong team and that the players who will play also have the talent and the qualities to win, we hope that this will be the case. . "

The former Tottenham coach will be able to count on elements that have shone in Burgundy, such as Julian Draxler or Rafinha. 

Neymar with the group at the end of the week?

On the other hand, it will not be necessary to count on a return of Angel Di Maria, even if the latter has resumed with the group in recent days.

“El Fideo” is indeed unavailable for this meeting.

Marco Verratti (contusion of the arch of the foot) too, even if he resumed the race on Tuesday.

The right-back Alessandro Florenzi will also be missed at Matmut Atlantique, like Neymar, who “continues his rehabilitation program and his individual work in the field”, as indicated by the club in the capital.

Recall that the Brazilian had it for a month.

"A return with the group will be evaluated at the end of the week," they add, leaving the door open for an appearance against Barça in eight days.

At least for a few minutes ... Finally, Juan Bernat (knee) could resume group training "early April".

In the meantime, there is therefore this match in Bordeaux, and three points to take: Lille is still at the top of the championship standings, with two points ahead of PSG.
