The slaughter in defense makes PSG tremble


By: Manu Tournoux

The announcement came in the middle of the morning. PSG will travel to the Principality this evening (match against Monaco at 9 p.m. to open the 24th day of Ligue 1) without Danilo Pereira. The defender injured his thigh during the last training session, reveals The Parisian. Muscular discomfort forced him to stop and then completely withdraw from today’s meeting. The club is holding its breath for the outcome and the exact nature of this injury.

The next few hours will tell us. The 32-year-old Portuguese will undergo examinations very soon which will establish a more precise diagnosis. Luis Enrique and PSG didn’t really need that, especially not right now. To challenge ASM, the Spanish coach must already do without the services of Marquinhos, whose calf is not completely recovered, in addition to the long-term absences which concern Milan Skriniar and Presnel Kimpembe.

Danilo’s injury comes at the worst time

4 days before traveling to San Sebastián for the 1/8 final second leg of the Champions League, this is not really the kind of welcome news. If the Portuguese and the Brazilian captain are not restored, Luis Enrique will be forced to field an unprecedented defense. Maybe even the one he will start this evening at the Louis-II stadium. Lucas Beraldo and Lucas Hernandez would abandon the left flank to play together in the hinge. The young Joane Gadou (17 years old) was even called in for reinforcement.

They are the last professional central defenders in this squad. In this context, the return of Nuno Mendes is timely. The left back made his first appearance of the season against Rennes, playing the last 19 minutes. He hadn’t played since April 30, almost 10 months. Starting him after such a long absence will probably put him at risk that the club does not wish to take, especially before such an important meeting in C1.
