Hard blow for PSG. Marco Verratti left with an injury before the end of the first period of the OM-PSG Classic this Sunday evening. Victim of a shock with midfielder Mattà © o Guendouzi, who fell to his left hip after an air duel, the Italian could not complete the first 45 minutes and came out in limping.

The midfielder had complained at length about the hip but it seemed logical that he would wait until half-time to be substituted. Faced with his difficulties in his movements, the healers finally intervened to freeze the affected area. Then the decision was taken by the medical team and Mauricio Pochettino in the 45th minute to replace him with Idrissa Gueye, twenty seconds from the end of the first period, toasting a first replacement.

In a very open first period, the duel in midfield was after between Mattà © o Guendouzi and Marco Verratti. The first 45 minutes were also marked by two offside goals denied on either side. A first for PSG, where the own goal of Luan Peres had to be canceled following the offside of Neymar, whose strike was deflected by the Brazilian defender .

Then a goal from Arkadiusz Milik was also called off seven minutes later, as Pol Lirola, author of the decisive pass, was also offside. A little later, Pau Lopez intervened on a header from Lionel Messi, who took the path of the goal.

During the game, the referee also had to intervene from the first Parisian corner, while Neymar received projectiles. The referee had to interrupt the game for a few moments.
