If PSG wants to advance past this challenging group in the UEFA Champions League and climb up the Ligue 1 table, they’ll need this Hakimi to show up each week. However, it will be an issue when the right-back leaves for the African Cup of Nations in January.
Nonetheless, for now, the Parisians need to take advantage of this form from Hakimi to finish 2023 on a positive note before he leaves for about a month.
