PSG squad struck down by stomach virus just hours before crunch clash against Monaco with top stars missing | The Sun

February 11, 2023

PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN'S squad have reportedly been hit by a virus just hours before their game against Monaco.

A stomach bug is claimed to be going around the camp.

Player have been throwing up, as well as suffering from tummy aches and fatigue, according to RMC Sport.

Several members of the squad are said to have been affected by the illness on Saturday morning.

It is unclear if the virus has ruled anybody out of this afternoon's game.

League leaders PSG travel to fourth-placed Monaco in a mouthwatering match up.

And boss Christopher Galtier is already dealing with a depleted squad for the crunch encounter.

Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, Marco Verratti and Achraf Hakimi are missing through injury.

PSG go into the game having won just three out of their last six league games, but are still eight points clear at the top of Ligue 1.

And the virus comes just three days before the Champions League Round of 16 first leg against Bayern Munich.
