PSG continues the successes at the start of the season, after its initial defeat at the Champions Trophy, but the Parisian players have also collected a good number of yellow cards since 14 warnings have already been distributed to Mauricio Pochettino’s troops, that is to say a very little less than three per meeting. It was especially the first two matches, against Lille (0-1) then in Troyes (2-1), which had been animated with four cards received each time.
With 14 cards distributed and despite the fact that many players have already been used, it is already two players who find themselves under the threat of suspension. Always so quickly warned by the referees of Ligue 1, Marco Verratti is necessarily under threat. It will not be this weekend that he will collect the famous third warning since he is absent and he will therefore be able to play PSG / OL with certainty, excluding injury. With eight more games of reprieve before avoiding the ax, it is still quite likely that he will fall soon.
The other player already under threat is called Abdou Diallo, warned at the Champions Trophy and then during the match in Reims before the international break. The Senegalese who plays in central defense in the selection and especially left-back in Paris should play this Saturday and a card would deprive him of the trip to Metz on Wednesday, September 22.
