PSG will see its schedule get busier in the upcoming month of February. They won't be against the reinforcement of one of their best performers from the first part of the season.

After his impressive performance against Toulouse in the victory of the Rouge & Bleu in the Trophee des Champions (2-0), Achraf Hakimi joined the Moroccan national team to participate in the Africa Cup of Nations. After a good group stage where Morocco finished first in their group, they were shocked by being eliminated in the Round of 16 by South Africa.

During this match, Achraf Hakimi had the opportunity to equalize, but his penalty was denied by the South African crossbar. Eliminated, the right-back should quickly reunite with his PSG teammates to prepare for the significant challenges of the capital club, including the Champions League Round of 16 first leg against Real Sociedad.

Ready for the match against Real Sociedad

According to Le Parisien, Achraf Hakimi, touched "morally by this early elimination and feeling, in a way, responsible for this defeat following his penalty failure," will have a few days of rest before rejoining his PSG teammates.

Passing through Morocco this Wednesday with the rest of his national team partners, Hakimi should not reunite with his club before the end of the week, according to the Parisian newspaper. The Moroccan international is expected to return to Campus PSG on Monday or Tuesday, still according to Le Parisien.

He might skip the match against Brest in the French Cup on February 7 and potentially make his comeback during the reception of Lille in the clash of the 21st round of Ligue 1, four days before the Champions League match against Real Sociedad.
