Paris Saint-Germain will have their second preseason friendly of the summer Tuesday. The capital club will face Cristiano Ronaldo and Al-Nassr for their first game in Japan. However, PSG will reportedly be without a key player, Kang-in Lee.
Le Parisien reports that Lee is not expected to play tomorrow against Al-Nassr following his thigh discomfort. The 22-year-old left the contest on Friday in the 2-0 win over Le Havre AC in the first half with the injury.

The South Korean international displayed his capabilities, with many believing he could be a pivotal contributor to the squad. Manager Luis Enrique must gradually bring the midfielder back to ensure he’s 100 percent.
However, not seeing Lee gain confidence and gel with his teammates is disappointing. If PSG can get their new acquisition healthy before the 2023-24 season starts, then this injury can be a blimp.
PSG will also be without Neymar Jr. in this match but could see action soon. Meanwhile, Kylian Mbappé is being scrapped from any association regarding this friendly as the 24-year-old stayed in Paris.
