Paris Saint-Germain will be without eight players for its upcoming Ligue 1 fixture against AS Saint-Etienne due to either injury or suspension, as announced by the club’s official website.
Neymar will miss this fixture as a result of the two-match suspension that he received following the red card incident during the recent Lille OSC match. Leandro Paredes also is out for this match due to a suspension.
PSG will have multiple players miss this match due to injury, although no player is currently dealing with a notable injury.
Marquinhos is recovering from the thigh injury that kept him out from PSG’s recent UEFA Champions League quarterfinal second leg fixture against Bayern Munich. The Brazilian defender is expected back in training by the end of the week.
Keylor Navas is dealing with a minor shoulder injury. Thus, Sergio Rico may likely be called on to start in this match for what would then be his 10th Ligue 1 appearance of the season.
With Lille dropping points on the matchday following its draw result with Montpellier, a win for PSG in this match could pull the side within a mere one point behind the league leaders.
