Paris SG players Marco Verratti and Thilo Kehrer, due to groin pain, forfeited the reception of Metz on Wednesday, announced their already private club of Neymar and Kylian Mbappé against the Mosellans.

Coach Thomas Tuchel continues to deal with a private group of several executives for this late match of the 1st day of L1 (9:00 p.m.).

In addition to the two internationals, the German must manage the suspensions of Neymar, Layvin Kurzawa and Leandro Paredes, and the absences of Mbappé (Covid-19) and Alessandro Florenzi (unqualified).

Thus appear in the group several "Titis", like Timothée Pembélé, Kays Ruiz, Bandiougou Fadiga, Arnaud Kalimuendo and Maxen Kapo.

Good news for PSG, Icardi and Marquinhos are well available to play, as Tuchel announced on Tuesday.

Both executives tested positive for the new coronavirus in early September.

PSG is preparing for an eventful evening between the reception of Metz, which should allow him to unlock his counter after two defeats, and the decisions of the disciplinary committee of the LFP concerning his three suspended, taken in the beginning of a general fight against Marseille (1-0) Sunday.
