PSG: Angel Di Maria positive for Covid-19 and package against Lyon

One more case of Covid-19 at PSG. For the second time, after September 2020, Angel Di Maria tested positive this Thursday and was placed in isolation. Even if he is asymptomatic, he will miss the shock of the 20th day of Ligue 1, Sunday, in Lyon.

The Argentina international has joined the long list of players from the capital club infected since the end of the truce. Gianluigi Donnarumma, Sergio Rico, Danilo Pereira, Layvin Kurzawa and Nathan Bitumazala were affected, as were Lionel Messi and Juan Bernat. But the Argentinian Golden Ball, which returned to France midweek, and the Spaniard have since tested negative and have been able to resume training. They could claim a place in Mauricio Pochettino’s group for the trip to the Rhône.

As for the 16e France Cup final at the start of the week in Vannes, the Parisian coach, still without Neymar injured in the ankle, could call on several young people like Xavi Simons or Edouard Michut. For its part, OL is also faced with several positive cases.

But, for now, while the new LFP protocol will be applied for the first time this weekend, the meeting is not threatened by a postponement. Unlike the matches between Angers-Saint-Etienne and Lille-Lorient which have already been postponed to a later date.
