PSG host Manchester City on Tuesday night for Matchday 2 of the Champions League group stages. Less than a week before this European shock, the news is gloomy on the side of the French capital.

Touched in the left knee by Jerôme Boateng against Olympique Lyonnais last Sunday, Lionel Messi could not play his role in the Paris Saint-Germain team during the trip to Metz on Wednesday on the occasion of the seventh day de Ligue 1. The 34-year-old Argentinian international, who resumed the race this Friday, will not be in Mauricio Pochettino’s group for the reception of Montpellier HSC on Saturday night at the Parc des Princes.

Mauricio Pochettino and the Parisian staff do not want to take any risk in view of the shock of the Champions League against Manchester City, next Tuesday at the Parc des Princes. However, RMC Sport assures that the Pulga is also uncertain for the reception of the Citizens. In Paris, however, the manager hopes to be able to count on his number 30 against the defending English champions.

Lionel Messi is uncertain for the Champions League clash between Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City at Parc des Princes on Tuesday. RMC Sport thus stressed this Friday that the former captain of FC Barcelona will not necessarily be ready for the Champions League clash between Parisians and Skyblues.

“Leo started running today as you saw in the medical release. We hope the evolution will be what we expect and we hope he will play out. We have to be careful, we will see the evolution in the next few days, “replied the coach of the Paris SG team.
