Italy international and PSG midfielder Marco Verratti returned to the collective session held by Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday morning at the Camp des Loges. Verratti has missed the last two league matches.

Verratti was forced to miss the last two games (against Nice and Lens) played by PSG in the Ligue 1 but even without the midfielder the Parisian got to earn six-of-six points in those two outings. Verratti is expected back for the game against Angers.

It's been two weeks since Verratti suffered a right hamstring injury in the matchup against Lyon on Apr. 2nd. After ample recovery time and a few setbacks, the tiny midfielder finally looks poised to make his anticipated (although not very needed) return.

Verratti took part in the collective training session carried out on Tuesday, although it must be said that it was intended to be light at least on Verratti's part.

If everything goes according to plan, Verratti should return to competition on Friday, on the lawn of Ligue 1 bottom-dwellers Angers. He was expected to play last Saturday, but an untimely relapse forced him out back then.

Although these are surely positive news, the truth is that PSG will still need to do without Neymar, Presnel Kimpembe, and Nordi Mukiele (all out for the season) while also missing a long-term injured Renato Sanches (at least three more weeks of recovery time expected) and Timothee Pembele after the right-back got injured last week.

In his last medical point, Paris Saint-Germain informed that Pembele "remained indoors to strengthen his knee," although he is expected back at the training ground throughout the week.
