Achraf Hakimi not injured, focusing on Bayern
PSG announced their list of players available for the game at Marseille a few hours ago with their trip scheduled for early Sunday. Achraf Hakimi didn't make the cut and is forfeited for today's Classique. This morning, both Le Parisien and L'Equipe confirmed the best possible news about his absence.
According to the French newspapers, PSG is erring on the safe side by keeping Hakimi out of the game at the Velodrome on Sunday, aiming at having the wing-back back and fully fit for the return game against Bayern needing to come from behind on the road having lost the first leg 0-1 at the Parc des Princes.
Hakimi completed the open training session on Friday with the rest of his teammates at the Parc des Princes, but Christophe Galtier warned us that he might miss the game depending on further exercises to take place on Saturday.
That ended up being the final decision, although it's good to know Hakimi's absence will have to do with a medical/precautionary decision rather than something more problematic and worrying going forward.
OM and PSG will face each other for a final time this season before Paris Saint-Germain faces Nantes prior to meeting Bayern in Munich, so Hakimi will still have another chance to gear up ahead of the most important game of the season for PSG in fewer than two weeks.
