The fears expressed by Christophe Galtier, on Sunday evening after the victory over OM (1-0), about the injury of Danilo Pereira, were confirmed by the exams that the Portuguese international passed (63 matches, 2 goals): he has an injury. Right hamstring, which should keep him off the field for at least three weeks.
Suffice it to say that he will not play in the last two Champions League group stage matches (against Maccabi Haifa next Tuesday and Juventus Turin on November 2) and that it is not even likely that Danilo will play again in a PSG shirt before. The armistice that will lead the players to the World Cup (November 20 – December 18).
Fit for the World Cup with Portugal?
This injury comes at a sensitive time for Paris, who have yet to score for the return of Presnel Kimpembe (who was also affected at Ishius). But it especially comes at bad times for the person concerned. Will he be fit to participate in the World Cup in Portugal?
It will likely depend on the number of players his coach Fernando Santos has retained. But also, and above all, the ability of the Parisian to recover quickly. Portugal’s first match in the tournament will be on November 24 against Ghana. This leaves little time for Danilo.
