Messi was injured at PSG and the National Team is alarmed

Lionel Messi was replaced at halftime in the game that his team, Paris Saint-Germain, with a goal from Angel Di María, beat Lille with difficulty 2-1, and generated concern two weeks after the double date of the South American Qualifiers in the that Argentina will face Uruguay and Brazil.

Messi had been suffering from muscle discomfort and for that reason he did not attend training on Thursday. In the match played at the Parc des Princes, he was seen touching his right leg during the first half.

And at the end of the match, Angel Di María clarified to the press that Messi’s departure was “as a precaution, since he felt muscle pain, but it was a precaution.”

The departure of Messi was added to the French Kylian Mbappé watching the game from the audience, and doubts about his presence next Wednesday for the Champions League against RB Leipzig, in Germany.

In the first half, a confused PSG was seen that did not generate actions against the Lille goal, which quickly took the lead with a goal from Canadian Jonathan David. But the most surprising news came when the game was resumed, when Pochettino decided the entry of Mauro Icardi for Messi.

PSG pressed and at 29 minutes Marquinhos achieved the equalizer after a very good overflow from Rosario Di María, who showed himself minutes later on a wall with Neymar that ended with a goal from the former Rosario Central.

Di María also gave a scare to the coaching staff of the Argentine team when he was very badly down and Reinildo Mendava from Lille stepped on his leg with all his weight. Pochettino ordered the entry of Ander Herrera by Rosario, who after medical attention was seen walking away without so many problems.
