Paris Saint-Germain team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Manchester City

Sports Mole rounds up all of PSG's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their Champions League clash with Manchester City on Tuesday.

Paris Saint-Germain will be out to overturn a 2-1 deficit against Manchester City when they travel to the Etihad for the second leg of their Champions League semi-final showdown.

Mauricio Pochettino's side were in control of the first leg after Marquinhos headed in a first-half opener, but City turned the tie on its head in the second 45 with strikes from Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez.

The Ligue 1 champions do head into Tuesday's game following a successful result domestically, though, as Neymar and Marquinhos propelled them to a 2-1 win over Lens to keep their title hopes alive.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of PSG's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the second leg.

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Calf
Possible return date: May 4 (vs. Man City)

Kylian Mbappe shook off a previous injury concern to be fit for the first leg, but he was left out of the squad to face Lens with a minor calf problem, sparking fears that he may not be ready for this game. However, Pochettino is optimistic that his star striker will be fine for the trip to Manchester.

Possible return date: May 4 (vs. Man City)

Colin Dagba was given the nod on the right-hand side against Lens before limping off after just 19 minutes with a suspected twisted ankle. An official update on Dagba's injury is yet to be provided, but it would be a surprise to see the defender cleared to play this week, even though he was included in the squad.


Juan Bernat

Type of injury: ACL
Possible return date: Unknown

Juan Bernat remains sidelined with the ACL injury he sustained in September, but the Ligue 1 champions will hope to have him back before the end of the season.
