Their usual bus under review, the Parisians arrived at the Parc des Princes in a black vehicle.
It is to be hoped that their afternoon, against Toulouse, this Saturday from 5 p.m., at the Parc des Princes (Prime Video) will not be so dark.
As the knockout round of the Champions League against Bayern Munich on February 14 approaches, Christophe Galtier had to solve a first puzzle to compose his team.
Before going to Marseille on Wednesday for the 8th in the Coupe de France, then going to Monaco in a week, in the league, PSG is indeed in a rather uncomfortable situation.

Injured in Montpellier, Kylian Mbappé and Sergio Ramos are not there.
Suffering from adductors, Neymar either.
Added to this is the suspension of Marco Verratti and the absences of Mukiele and Kimpembe who has just resumed collective training.
Facing Toulouse, Galtier decided to trust the men who won in Montpellier (3-1) last Wednesday.
Danilo will support Marquinhos in central defense.
In midfield, he will again line up Soler, Vitinha, Renato Sanches and Fabian Ruiz.
No place at kick-off therefore for Warren Zaire-Emery, author of the third goal in Montpellier.
In attack, Hugo Ekitike will have the heavy task of replacing Mbappé.
He can count on the support of Lionel Messi who is about to live his first match of the season without his two friends from the MNM.
PSG against Toulouse:
Donnarumma - Hakimi, Marquinhos (cap), Danilo, Nuno Mendes - Soler, Vitinha, Sanches, Ruiz - Messi, Ekitike.
Replacements: Rico, Letellier, Bernat, Pembele, Bitshiabu, Zaire-Emery, Gharbi, Housni.
