PSG’s Di Maria out of Barcelona Champions League first leg

Angel Di Maria will miss Paris St Germain’s Champions League last-16 first leg against Barcelona at the Camp Nou with a thigh injury, coach Mauricio Pochettino said on Tuesday.

“For Angel it’s over. We will communicate in a week to see where we are,” Pochettino told a news conference ahead of Wednesday’s French Cup last 64 game at Ligue 2 side Caen.

Di Maria sustained the injury during PSG’s 2-0 victory at Olympique de Marseille, which left them third in the Ligue 1 standings three points behind leaders Lille.

PSG travel to Barcelona next Tuesday.
