PSG: Marco Verratti, suspended for two firm matches, back for the shock against OM


Excluded against Reims last Sunday, the Italian midfielder received a two-game suspension. He will be available for OM-PSG in Co

The decision fell on Thursday evening.

Marco Verratti received a two-game suspension plus another suspended sentence after receiving his red card against Reims last Sunday for a heavy tackle on Ito.

The Italian midfielder received his first match suspension against Montpellier on Wednesday and will also miss the reception of Toulouse this Saturday afternoon (5 p.m.).

He should therefore hold his place, except for a physical setback, for the round of 16 of the Coupe de France against Olympique de Marseille which takes place on Wednesday evening (9:10 p.m.).

There was a big doubt about the content of the sanction aimed at Marco Verratti.

Given his record (132 cards and 6 expulsions in 401 games with PSG) and the very heavy tackle on the Japanese striker from Reims 14 minutes after entering the lawn of the Parc des Princes, we could fear a heavier suspension for the small midfielder.

Finally, Christophe Galtier will be able to count on him on the occasion of the poster for the round of 16 of the Coupe de France against OM and for the match against AS Monaco on Saturday February 11.

Two matches that will give Marco Verratti the opportunity to get back on his feet for the knockout round of the Champions League between PSG and Bayern Munich on February 14.

Especially since he had been sidelined due to a strained thigh before the reception of Angers on January 11.

At a time when Kylian Mbappé should forfeit the shock against the German club, the return of the transalpine international is necessarily reassuring news for the Parisian staff.
