Messi was forced to miss the PSG-Benfica Champions League match after failing to recuperate from his calf injury. The seven times Ballon d’or winner hasn’t been playing since last week’s match against Benfica.
Fans from all over the world are worried that the Argentinian football legend will not be able to recover in time for the upcoming Le Classique against Olympique de Marseille, although the Paris Saint-Germain club manager, Galtier, revealed that he will be fit and ready for the weekend clash against their all-time rivals.
The PSG boss said in a statement that “We know the importance of Leo in our game, his form and the connection he can have with other players, we must have other options. We need to be able to play down both sides. When Messi plays, we play a lot down the middle. We’ve been working hard on distribution to bring more variety in our attack.”
The match ended with a 1-1 draw with Mbappé scoring one goal for the team.
