All the expected players were there this Friday morning, at Camp des Loges.
Two days before returning to Ligue 1 and Losc this Sunday evening, at the Pierre-Mauroy stadium (8:45 p.m.), the Parisians trained in front of the cameras authorized to enter the enclosure of the training center.
Christophe Galtier was thus able to count on a group of 21 players, which had further shrunk in recent days.
Since the resumption of the championship, Éric-Junior Dina-Ebimbe and Mauro Icardi had thus joined the “second group” of training, intended to keep in shape the players placed on the transfer list by the club.
The first should engage in the next few hours with Eintracht Frankfurt, while the second explored this Thursday, through his agent, a track in Turkey.
Galtier will give a press conference at 1 p.m.
In fact, in addition to these two, only the last lofters (Layvin Kurzawa, Rafinha, Ander Herrera, Julian Draxler, Idrissa Gueye), still awaiting departure too, were absent on the eve of the match.
After being able to line up his “standard team” for the first time this season against Montpellier last Saturday, in particular his attacking trio Mbappé-Neymar-Messi, Christophe Galtier should therefore be able to take him back to Lille.
Mbappé all smiles in training 🔥

A week of training which was inevitably marked by the tensions which had appeared on the sidelines of this match against Montpellier, in particular between Kylian Mbappé and Neymar.
Images of training this Thursday showed a smiling Frenchman, far from the pout and annoyance displayed on the ground against the Héraultais.
On Sunday, Luis Campos had brought the two men together in order to defuse this affair as quickly as possible.
Christophe Galtier will give a press conference at 1 p.m.
