Thomas Tuchel admits PSG could have just 11 players to face Nimes. There are also question marks over fitness of Neymar and Kylian Mbappé.
Thomas Tuchel says Paris Saint-Germain will only have 11 players available for Friday’s Ligue 1 clash with Nîmes due to injuries, suspensions and coronavirus protocols.
The reigning French champions will be looking to pick up a fifth win in a row when they make the trip to Stade des Costières on their return to action after a two-week break.
Marquinhos, Marco Verratti, Julian Draxler, Thilo Kehrer, Juan Bernat and Mauro Icardi are injured, Ángel Di María and Layvin Kurzawa are suspended while Ander Herrera has contracted covid-19.
Meanwhile, new signing Danilo Pereira and Colin Dagba have been in close contact with players who have tested positive for coronavirus and must undergo another test on Thursday.
There are also question marks over the fitness of Neymar and Kylian Mbappé on the back of a stacked international fixture list, which is a cause for concern for Tuchel, especially with Manchester United to come in the Champions League next Tuesday.
