Sports Verratti injured again
Barcelona meets PSG for 1st time since epic 6-1 comeback win
MADRID — The last time Barcelona hosted Paris Saint-Germain, it was one of the greatest comebacks in Champions League history. The same teams will meet Tuesday at the Camp Nou for the first time since Barcelona routed PSG 6-1 nearly four years ago. “That game will go down in history,” Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembélé said ahead of the first leg of this year’s round of 16. “There will be revenge in the air due to the media trying to spice things up. However, we don’t talk about it in the squad because we know it’ll be a difficult game. We know Paris, they are the current Champions League runners-up. They are among the favourites to win the trophy.
When it's not one, it's the other.
Absent from the trip to Dijon this Saturday (), Marco Verratti is again subject to physical problems. The Paris Saint-Germain midfielder received a shock to his foot during a midweek training session, which has been confirmed by those close to the club.
The Italian is heading for a very likely forfeit against Bordeaux on Wednesday, while his presence against Brest in the Coupe de France is also in jeopardy. Mauricio Pochettino also mentioned it at a press conference: "As for Icardi and Florenzi, we will see the evolution of Marco Verratti in the coming days. For the moment, he has difficulty putting on his shoes. "
Anyway, PSG do not need him against Barcelona. Yes ?
