PSG will have to play their next match without, at least, six players because of multiple reasons including injuries and suspensions. The game against Metz in Ligue 1 is scheduled for Wednesday, and PSG released an injury report one day ahead of kick-off.

Luis Enrique will need to reshuffle his squad once more when PSG host the 14th-ranked Metz in the league this midweek following their draw against Lille over the weekend. The club's final medical update, released ahead of the match on Tuesday, includes ominous outlooks for several players.

Nuno Mendes is still following a personal protocol to treat the surgery he underwent in late September. Fabian Ruiz continues his recovery from a right shoulder injury suffered last month. Keylor Navas, another important depth player as the GK2 of the team, trained individually suffering from lower back pain.

In addition to these ongoing recovering players, two starters from the recent match against Lille have been ruled out. Forward Ousmane Dembele will forfeit this upcoming game with a hamstring issue, and Arnau Tenas is out with a minor right shoulder injury sustained in the same match.

PSG will at least have GK1 Gianluigi Donnarumma back from his two-game suspension. Otherwise, the Parisian would have been forced to use their fourth-string goalkeeper on Wednesday.

On top of that, Presnel Kimpembe, who has been dealing with a long-term injury, trained with the group ahead of the game and should/could get some minutes against Metz.

PSG did not provide updates on Goncalo Ramos and Carlos Soler, who have been out with a non-COVID illness not clarified by the club as of this writing, making their availability uncertain for tomorrow's matchup.
