Marco Verratti will train for an injury-hit PSG as they prepare for a repeat of one of the club’s most painful defeats in its history.
Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti will be training ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Barcelona, which Mauricio Pochettino is approaching calmly despite the weight of history on his team’s shoulders.
Last season’s finalists will face Barca at Camp Nou for the first time since their loss in the second leg of the last-16 game between the two teams in 2017.
“We are taking it to step by step with Marco Verratti,” Pochettino told a pre-match media conference. Today [Tuesday] he’s going to practice, and it’s not going to be a very hard one, since it is the day before the match.
We have a strategy and a gameplan that, depending on who is available, will affect our decision.”
