Verratti thigh injury not serious

Marco Verratti left the Italy camp with a thigh injury, but tests have reassured PSG he will be ready to face Bayern Munich.

The midfielder played the first two World Cup qualifiers against Northern Ireland and Bulgaria, but pulled out before tonight’s trip to Lithuania.

According to L’Equipe, tests have shown bruising to the left thigh, which means he will likely miss this weekend’s Ligue 1 clash with Lille.

However, PSG medics are confident Verratti will be ready to start the Champions League quarter-final against Bayern Munich next Wednesday.
