Report: Messi, Neymar and the Seven PSG Players Who Will Not Play in the Coupe de France Clash vs. Chateauroux

Paris Saint-Germain will be without multiple players for its Coupe de France round of 64 fixture against Chateauroux.

On Thursday, PSG released its squad list for the Coupe de France match, and Lionel Messi, Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, and Achraf Hakimi will not feature in the contest. Messi just recently returned from his post-World Cup vacation, while Mbappe and Hakimi are currently away from the team.

On the other hand, PSG manager Christophe Galtier announced during his pre-match press conference on Thursday that Neymar will not be available to play against Chateauroux, as the club’s medical staff will be treating his sprained ankle.

More so, Nuno Mendes (hamstring), Renato Sanches (bruise), and Presnel Kimpembe (tendinitis in his right Achilles tendon) will also not feature in the match due to their respective injuries.

Gianluigi Donnarumma was not included in PSG’s squad list for the contest. Galtier noted on Thursday that Keylor Navas will be the starting goalkeeper against Chateauroux.

Finally, Marco Verratti will be sidelined from this French Cup match due to a yellow card suspension.

PSG sure will be looking to bounce back from its recent Ligue 1 away loss to RC Lens.
