Paris Saint-Germain are suffering injury concerns as Zlatan Ibrahimovic is ruled out for tonight's Ligue 1 match against SM Caen.
The Swedish forward is not invisible - as some would think - as he is suffering of a pain under his left-foot and a minimum 48 hours recovery is needed in order to play at the weekend away to Toulouse.
PSG's boss Lauren Blanc may, perhaps, want to rest Zlatan a little bit longer as the French meet FC Barcelona next week in the Champions League Group stages - it would be irresponsible to risk the player at the weekend with an important fixture to follow.
It is a huge blow for the French capital team as they are looking to properly get into the Ligue 1 season after winning only two of their six League fixtures so far.
PSG are yet to lose a game this season but four draws against small teams are not good results for a club that spend colossal amount of moneys.
Having brought in David Luiz for £40million this summer should have been, and should be, enough money spent to have a very strong defence, as the Brazilian is now playing alongside fellow mate Thiago Silva.
But there are also some worrying problems upfront as Paris struggle to finish off some real football in their opponent box.
Zlatan still PSG's main man
The Ligue 1 tittle-holders have netted eleven times in six league games and half of them came from their top player Zlatan.
And that just give a good reason to worry about PSG at the moment as they stand fifth on the same amount of as eight place FC Nantes with 10, and his absence Wednesday night will let them struggle again.
On European stages PSG have not started well too with a 1-1 draw to Zlatan former club Ajax in Amsterdam last week, and for a club who want to earn back their top reputation across the entire Europe - it is significant to win such matches
Starting their Champions League campaign with only one point was not the best to kick-off their road to the final, as they are aiming for, but winning against the Spaniard [Barca] next week would still show some good potential to reach their target.
A loss against Caen Wednesday night would mean that Paris may drop to the bottom half of the Ligue 1 table, then depending on the performances of other teams.
Edinson Cavani was said to be as efficient as Zlatan this week in France, but with only three goals scored so far this campaign, the Uruguayan will have to do the job and prove that he can do as good as 'Ibra' in his absence.
