The worst news Messi received against Olympique Marseille, a few days before facing Bayern Munich
Paris Saint-Germain is going through the most critical moment of the season. They are currently facing Olympique Marseille for gameweek number 25 in Ligue 1. The first half was won by PSG with a great goal from Kylian Mbappe and an assist from Lionel Andre Messi, and then vice versa. Now, during the game, some bad news was confirmed for Lionel Messi and the rest of the Parisian squad.
Just a few minutes into the game, one of the team’s most important players, at least in the defensive zone, was seriously injured and was unable to continue the game. This is Presnel Kimpembe, a young French central defender who, after a hard crash, left the pitch on a stretcher surrounded by medical assistance, and was later seen with expressions of pain and tears included.
Paris Saint-Germain is going through a terrible streak, despite winning today against a very demanding rival. With two consecutive victories, today and against LOSC Lille the previous gameweek, it seems that little by little those led by Christophe Galtier manage to reverse the bad situation. The reality is that the elimination of the Coupe de France at the hands of Olympique Marseille, and the subsequent defeat at home against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League, were very painful for the fans.
Now Paris Saint-Germain is more than focused on a mission: to overcome Bayern Munich in Germany. That’s right, PSG will travel to the Allianz Arena on March 8 to show that they don’t want to be eliminated from the prestigious tournament, a tournament that they still don’t know what it means to win.
As if the feat of coming back from Bayern Munich was not complicated enough, now the injury to Presnel Kimpembe is added, which is without a doubt a very sensitive casualty, since he is a fixture in Christophe Galtier’s tactical system. In addition to the defender, let’s remember that Neymar Jr is also injured, as he sprained his right ankle against LOSC Lille, the usual one. Unless something totally unexpected happens, chances are the Brazilian winger won’t be able to get there in time against the Germans, so Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe will try to come back on their own.
Lionel Messi will continue at PSG?
As if Paris Saint Germain did not have enough problems, in recent weeks an important one has been added to it, the renewal of Lionel Messi, who ends his contract in 2024 and does not seem very keen on continuing in the team. According to the specialized media ‘Le Parisien’, the negotiations between Paris Saint-Germain and the father of the Argentine player would have stalled and would not have reached anywhere that would benefit both parties. In fact, as ‘RMC Sports’ points out, Paris Saint-Germain might not consider the renewal as an urgent act, and for the same reason they would not offer a disproportionate money offer.
