Hakimi to miss PSG-Lille clash

February 16, 2023

Hakimi will miss the forthcoming Ligue 1 game against Lille on Sunday. PSG can’t seem to get a break right now. The Moroccan was out during Champions League last 16 first leg loss to Bayern Munich on Tuesday. In sum, it was their third defeat in a row. Following a lackluster performance against the Bavarians, the 2022 World Cup semi-finalist was replaced at halftime. The centre-back, Presnel Kimpembe came for replacement with Marquinhos filling in at right-back.

Hakimi was experiencing thigh pain and was unable to cope with the intensity of the tie. Hakimi now has to relax, and PSG has set a recovery program for him, leaving him unavailable for the game against Les Dogues on Sunday. PSG are confident about the Moroccan’s prospects of playing in the highly anticipated Classique versus archrivals Marseille on February 26th since he is not suffering from any strain. Get well soon, Achraf Hakimi!
