Moise Kean's positive Covid-19 test, revealed this Wednesday by Paris Saint-Germain, deprives the capital club of an additional element for the trip to Bordeaux this Wednesday evening, as well as for the shock against Barcelona in Champions League. Among those absent in Gironde (Mbappé, Neymar, Di Maria, Florenzi, Verratti, Bernat), not all will be able to be back for C1. Available for PSG-Barça The simplest case is that of Kylian Mbappé, suspended in Bordeaux for an accumulation of yellow cards. The hero of the first leg will naturally resume his place in the Parisian group, alongside 22 players summoned by Mauricio Pochettino for the trip to Matmut Atlantique. These all theoretically apply for Barcelona: Navas, Rico, Letellier - Marquinhos, Diallo, Bakker, Kimpembe, Kehrer, Kurzawa, Dagba, Pembélé - Paredes, Rafinha, Gueye, Danilo, Herrera, Draxler, Michut, Simons - Icardi, Sarabia . Perhaps back for PSG-Barça The most likely return for Mauricio Pochettino would be that of Angel Di Maria. Hit in the thigh since the victory in Marseille in early February, the Argentine left-hander resumed training on Monday. Which left him nine working days before Barcelona. The case of Marco Verratti is slightly different. This is a contusion to the arch of the foot, and not a muscle injury (which generally requires more precautions when recovering). But the area is sensitive, and its return is regularly postponed. He resumed racing on Tuesday. Finally, Alessandro Florenzi, who has been suffering from adductors for a week, is still doing individual work. It could be fair for Barcelona. No doubt package for PSG-Barça Tuesday, PSG announced that the return of Neymar in the group would be "evaluated" at the end of the week. We know that the Brazilian is doing his best to recover as much as possible from his adductor injury, but that PSG does not want to take any risk with his jewel, given his medical history, and especially the score of the first leg. The trend is still towards a package as far as it is concerned. Certain package for PSG-Barça Victim of a serious knee injury at the start of the season, Juan Bernat will not resume training before the beginning of April. But the bad news of the day therefore comes from Moise Kean. UEFA protocol provides that a player, confirmed case, must present a negative Covid-19 test seven days before the match in question. It's already too late for the Italian, who had been very valuable in the first leg against Barcelona.
