This morning’s training session at the Camp des Loges was accompanied with a series of pieces of good news for PSG manager Thomas Tuchel, just over 48 hours away from the club’s 1st leg of their Round of 16 knock-out clash with Borussia Dortmund.
Kimpembe was involved, appearing to have fully recovered from his thigh problem – internal sources claim that the French international is fully fit to start against Dortmund should Tuchel select him, according to RMC.
Abdou Diallo was also present, which was a surprising development, with him having even taken part in a small-sided opposition game this morning. He was expected to be out for the rest of month, and it remains to be seen whether Tuchel includes him in his 18-man squad vs Dortmund, as PSG already have Thilo Kehrer and Tanguy Kouassi fully fit at centre-back.
Neymar, Kylian Mbappé, Juan Bernat, Marquinhos and Thiago Silva all participated totally normally in today’s session. Tuchel gave no indication during training as to which starting XI he will deploy on Tuesday night.
PSG will fly to Dortmund tomorrow morning before a final session in the evening on the Signal Iduna Park pitch.
