(ANSA-AFP) – ROME, OCTOBER 29 – The emergency in attack against Paris-Saint-Germain is back, at least in part. The club has announced that Lionel Messi is among the 22 called up for tonight’s home game against Lille. The participation of the ‘flea’ was questioned due to a muscle problem. The Argentine striker on Thursday morning had skipped collective training, “as a precaution”, said coach Mauricio Pochettino.
“He felt a muscle discomfort,” explained the technician, without specifying where the pain was. Messi has had physical problems since the start of the season, including a bruised knee bone that caused him to miss two matches in September. He has not yet scored his first goal in the French league, despite three goals in the Champions League.
Like Messi, Neymar, Angel di Maria and Mauro Icardi appear among those called up for the 12th matchday of Ligue 1. Absent Kylian Mbappé (illness), Marco Verratti (hip), Sergio Ramos (calf), Leandro Paredes (quadriceps) and Achraf Hakimi (suspended). (ANSA-AFP).
