A few weeks before the second leg of the Champions League final against Bayern Munich, the worries do not stop for the PSG coach.
Beaten by Bayern Munich (0-1) last February 14, at the Parc des Princes, Paris Saint-Germain hopes to reverse the trend on March 8, at the Allianz Arena, to pass the round of 16 of the Champions League. Deprived of Kylian Mbappé during the first part of the first leg, the coach of the French capital club should also have some headaches when composing his team for the return clash.
Nuno Mendes, who started against Lille OSC on Sunday afternoon, left the Parc des Princes after 30 minutes of play. The Portuguese left-back was replaced by Juan Bernat at the half-hour mark. A new blow for the 20-year-old player, who has already missed ten games in all competitions this season due to muscle problems. Replaced by Juan Bernat, Mendes is not the only one injured in this game.
PSG: After Nuno Mendes, Neymar leaves on stretcher
Big concern for Paris Saint-Germain. Touched in the right ankle, Neymar was forced to leave on injury this Sunday against LOSC, on the occasion of the 24th day of Ligue 1. While he was in contact with Benjamin Andre, the 31-year-old striker fell badly on his ankle, and immediately twisted in pain, near the center circle. Remained on the ground for a long time, the Brazilian international tried for a while to walk again, before being evacuated on a stretcher under the applause of the Parc des Princes. Replaced by Hugo Ekitike (51st), who took his place alongside Kylian Mbappé and Lionel Messi in attack, Neymar appeared extremely affected, taking his head in his hands.
