Reports: Verratti injury for PSG is serious

According to reports in France, Marco Verratti will not only miss the Atalanta match, but potentially all of the Champions League, should PSG progress.

The Italy international sustained a calf injury during a training session earlier this week, it’s rumoured during a collision with teammate Eric Choupo-Moting.

Verratti is in the squad travelling to Portugal, but his condition is believed to be fairly serious.

RMC Sport claim the latest tests are not reassuring, and not only will Verratti certainly be out of Wednesday’s quarter-final with Atalanta, but he might not be able to play even if PSG reach the Final.

Injuries have been piling up for Paris Saint-Germain, as Kylian Mbappé is also a huge doubt due to a sprained ankle, while Layvin Kurzawa isn’t fully fit either.

Thomas Meunier has already pulled out, Edinson Cavani left the club at the end of his contract, while Angel Di Maria is suspended for the Atalanta clash.

In a bizarre twist, even coach Thomas Tuchel sustained an injury during Thursday’s training session, spraining his ankle and fracturing the fifth metatarsal in his foot.
