Report: Navas Could Start for PSG Against Metz on Wednesday

After a hectic period in which Paris Saint-Germain faced a coronavirus outbreak within the team, manager Thomas Tuchel is now beginning to receive good news regarding the health of his players. For one, PSG goalkeeper Keylor Navas has recovered from coronavirus and is now cleared to resume action with the club, according to a report from RMC Sport.

PSG dearly missed Navas in its last two games, as the club lost each fixture. The Costa Rican goalkeeper was ruled out for both contests due to the recent positive coronavirus test. Now, Navas has been cleared to return to the pitch with PSG and should be a candidate to start against Metz tomorrow.

If Navas is not able to face Metz, PSG will once again have to rely on third-string goalkeeper Marcin Bulka to lead the way. Sergio Rico would typically earn the start for the club in games where Navas is not able to feature in, but a registration issue will keep the Spanish goalkeeper out of the squad for this upcoming fixture. He was not registered with the club for the 2020-2021 Ligue 1 season on Aug. 23, which was when the club’s fixture against Metz was originally scheduled for.

PSG sure hopes that Navas can feature in the contest and also provide a top showing.
