Messi is still difficult to make his debut in 2022
During the Christmas holiday, Messi went back to Argentina for vacation and contracted the new crown in Argentina. After the new crown test turned negative, Messi returned to Paris, where he had been training alone for several days. Paris officials have now announced that Messi will continue his personal training after recovery from the new crown, and he will not be able to play against Lyon. In the first two games of 2022, Messi is free from the game. He has not staged his personal 2022 first game.
There are still extensive injuries in the Paris team
Injuries are the key words of Paris this season. Today, the Paris team still has extensive injuries. In the midfield, Bernat, Kulzava, Donnarumma and Pereira are all positive for the new crown. On the attack line, Neymar is still recovering from injuries, Draxler and Di Maria are also infected with the new crown. How to arrange troops on the front has become a big problem for Pochettino. Mbappé’s position is unshakable. One of Icardi or Wijnaldum will be the center, and Harvey Simmons is likely to be a cameo on the right. Major players such as Ashraf and Gaye have left the team to participate in the African Cup. The good news for Paris is that Ramos is back from lifting the ban.
Lyon’s home game is greatly restricted
Due to the impact of the new crown epidemic, Ligue 1 officials only allowed up to 5,000 fans to enter the game. For local fans, this is of course a great pity. For Paris, this is absolutely good news. The fewer fans attend the stadium, the less Lyon’s home advantage will naturally be, and the less psychological pressure Paris will endure.
Pochettino (Paris Saint-Germain coach): Icardi is overweight? He is fine now, I didn’t see the photos you mentioned. Icardi and Mbappé have not played much together recently, but they have different characteristics and complement each other in style. All teams have players who are absent because of the new crown. We have to adapt every day and sometimes have to change the established plan.
