Nothing serious for the French world champion but PSG will have to deal without the best player in L1 2021-2022 for the opening match of the season against Clermont on Saturday evening. Affected in the adductors, Kylian Mbappé is forfeited for the first day of Ligue 1.
The time for recovery is therefore further postponed for the Parisian striker, who had already missed the Champions Trophy match against Nantes due to an accumulation of yellow cards. PSG indicates that a new point concerning his health will be made in 72 hours, in the meantime, he remains very wisely in training camp.
Icardi stays in Paris (this weekend)
Despite this last minute absence, Mauro Icardi is not in the group for Clermont, proof if one more was needed that Galtier is not counting on him this season and that it would be good if he found a base. by August 31. Pablo Sarabia should thus accompany Messi and Neymar on the attacking front, like last week during the Champions Trophy.
Anyway, this notable absence will not be enough to curb our desire to see this PSG 2.0 of Christophe Galtier in action for the first day of Ligue 1. On the Parisian side, we imagine that we prefer this kind of injury at the start season, against the ogre Clermontois, rather than in March on the eve of a return to the Champions League against Real Madrid.
