PSG provides injury update ahead of Metz clash at Parc des Princes on Wednesday
Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) will be without Ousmane Dembélé and Arnau Tenas for their match against FC Metz in the final round of the first half of the French league season, according to the club’s latest injury report.
Tenas, the 22-year-old Spanish goalkeeper, who was slightly injured to his right shoulder in the match against Lille, will be rested for the encounter against Metz on Wednesday at 9pm. This decision is aimed at ensuring the full recovery of Navas and keeping him in shape for the upcoming matches.
In addition to Tenas, striker Ousmane Dembélé will be sidelined due to a minor hamstring problem. The French striker, who plays an important role in PSG’s attacking setup, was recently injured and the management has decided to give him the time he needs to fully recover. Dembélé’s absence will undoubtedly be felt, but PSG will rely on other key players to fill the void.

Major changes to PSG’s starting XI?
In addition, the medical report highlighted the continuation of Fabian Ruiz’s right shoulder rehabilitation. The midfielder continues to work on his recovery and his progress will be closely monitored by the medical staff and coaches.
Luis Enrique, PSG’s coach, will need to adjust his starting lineup without Dembélé and Tenas. The absence of these key players adds an additional layer of complexity as the team aims to maintain its grip on the top of the table.
