PSG will face Atalanta Bergamo on Wednesday at 9 p.m., in the quarter-finals of the Final 8 of the Champions League, which will take place in Lisbon. And on the Parisian side, the pressure is mounting at the same time as the tiles are accumulating. Europe 1 takes stock of the capital club's infirmary.
Marco Verratti package
Midfielder Marco Verratti is already forfeited for the quarter-final. He could even miss the rest of the competition if Paris were to qualify. The Italian injured his calf during training and did not make the trip to the Algarve, where the Parisian clan is in training for three days in Faro, to prepare for the meeting.

German defender Thilo Kehrer (ear injury) and Argentinian striker Mauro Icardi (thigh discomfort), a reduced time announced, were able to take part in collective training without any problem. We even saw Mauro Icardi take the gloves of Keylors Navas and make a few parades in goal.
Angel di Maria suspended
In addition to the absence of Marco Verratti, PSG will also have to do without Layvin Kurzawa, affected in the thigh, and without the Argentinian Angel di Maria, suspended. Also note the funny injury of trainer Thomas Tuchel, who broke his ankle during a sports session. He appeared in Faro on Saturday, on crutches.
Kylian Mbappé has trained
Sunday, Kylian Mbappé was still uncertain. Hit in the ankle during the final of the Coupe de France against Saint-Etienne on July 24, the striker continues his race against the clock to be delivered on time. The player is present at the camp with his teammates, but on the other hand has not trained with his partners, but with a member of the staff.

On the program: a few accelerations and strikes to test the elasticity of his ankle. Kylian Mbappé seems to be doing much better, but he should not start against Bergamo. The club had promised that no risk would be taken. The world champion should therefore start on the bench, which is already a small victory for Paris Saint-Germain.
Atalanta also decreased
Parisian supporters will still be able to console themselves by learning of the knee injury of Atalanta Bergamo's goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini, who is therefore forfeited for Wednesday's match, just like Josip Ilicic, forfeited for "personal reasons" .
