The defeat in the last moments of the Champions League meeting against Manchester United could have hurt. This Saturday, Dijon seemed to be the ideal victim to regain confidence. And it was not lacking since the Parisians won 4 goals to 0 at the Parc des Princes.
But, the club of the capital must face a hard blow: the injury of Julian Draxler. The German was replaced by Ander Herrera in the 59th minute, after being on the ground for a long time. “Losing Drax is expensive” wanted to react Thomas Tuchel in a press conference. And we can understand it as the Parisian midfield appears hairless in quantity, with the injuries of Verratti, Paredes and Gueye. But also in quality, as the German technician himself admitted: “The team will lack quality in the middle, already without Marco or Leo”. To see how PSG will adapt for the C1 meeting in Basaksehir.
