The Parisians returned to training on Wednesday after two consecutive days off and a busy week. This had seen them win clearly on Tuesday in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 in Barcelona (4-1), before suffering a worrying defeat on Sunday night at the Parc des Princes against Monaco (2-0 ).
Mauricio Pochettino’s players worked in small groups in the workshops and this session allowed them to have a more precise idea of the group that could fly to Dijon this Friday night. Victim of a contusion on his right foot and absent against Monaco, Pablo Sarabia made his return and will surely be available for the trip to Burgundy (game this Saturday at 5:00 p.m.).
On the other hand, it could still be a bit fair for Angel Di Maria, who continues his individual preparation after his right thigh injury against OM on February 7. The Argentine had abandoned his teammates during the El Clasico in the 12th minute of the match at the Stade-Vélodrome, returning directly to the locker room.
Finally Colin Dagba, also hit in the thigh and scheduled to resume training this week, also appears to have missed his turn against Dijon. Let’s remember that Leandro Paredes is suspended for this trip to the red lantern of the championship.
