Marco Verratti last played in a fixture for Paris Saint-Germain during its pivotal 6-1 home league win against Angers. The contest may be the last that the club will see of Verratti for quite a while.
Verratti is set to miss three weeks of action due to injury, according to a report from L’Equipe.
Verratti came back to PSG last week from the October international break with a slight injury. The club ruled that he is now dealing with an injury to his right quadriceps major femoris. PSG wound up leaving Verratti out of the squad list for the team’s away league fixture against Nimes Olympique last week, and he has not trained with the club since being diagnosed with the injury.
If Verratti is slated to be sidelined for three weeks due to the injury, the midfielder will now not be available to feature for PSG’s first three UEFA Champions League group stage fixtures. With this current timetable, Verratti will be fit and ready to feature for the club after next month’s international break.
For now, PSG has the depth to deal with significant injuries such as with Verratti’s current quad issue. Manager Thomas Tuchel is now projected to rely on new signees Rafinha and Danilo Pereira in the meantime.
