PSG boss Thomas Tuchel will be having a headache regarding the team selection, with not a lot of options available. The French champions will also be hosting their rivals Marseille in an important match on September 13. French league guidelines state the more than three positive cases at a club would likely to lead to a postponement. This means that PSG will not be able to play these games. Currently, the Coronavirus is causing havoc in the PSG camp.
The fans will be hoping the PSG star gets healthy as soon as possible as he is a crucial player in the team’s success.
