The opportunity to recharge the batteries but also to take stock of the infirmary while the Parisians go to Lorient on Sunday (1 p.m.). Brought on in the 21st minute against Juventus, Fabian Ruiz didn’t look very calm on the bench as he spoke at length about the nature of his injury to compatriots Pablo Sarabia and Sergio Rico.

The Spaniard is suffering from a muscle injury in his leg that will keep him out of the field, at least, for the next two Paris Saint-Germain matches. Therefore, the former Neapolitan will stop playing with the capital club before the World Cup (November 20-December 18).
