According to Le Parisien, Juan Bernat trained normally this Monday at Camp des Loges. The Spanish defender would no longer be embarrassed by his calf and could be established during the friendly match against Sochaux, this Wednesday at the Parc des Princes (7 p.m.).
This is great news for Thomas Tuchel. According to The Parisian, Juan Bernat would finally be ready to return to competition. Too fair for the Coupe de la Ligue final against OL, Friday at the Stade de France (0-0 5 tab to 4), the left side of PSG would no longer feel discomfort in the calf. The 27-year-old would have trained without problem on Monday at Camp des Loges.
If his good feelings are confirmed during the next sessions, he could be established during the friendly match facing Sochaux, this Wednesday at Parc des Princes (7 p.m.). Before considering a possible participation in the quarter-final of the Champions League against the Atalanta Bergamo, August 12 in Lisbon (on RMC Sport).
No more worries for Icardi, Marquinhos and T. Silva
It remains to be seen in what physical condition the former Bayern Munich is after more than five months without a game. His last appearance dates back to March 11 during the round of 16 return leg of C1 against Dortmund. In a closed park, surrounded by the ultras, Bernat had sealed the qualification of his team by scoring the goal of 2-0. Since then, he has not reappeared with the Parisian jersey.
What to wonder about its ability to keep pace with a high intensity match. In the area of the injured, Le Parisien also ensures that Mauro Icardi, Thiago Silva and Marquinhos would no longer have muscle concerns after their premature outings against the Lyonnais. On the other hand, Layvin Kurzawa, hit in the thigh, would work apart for the moment.
