PARIS — Paris Saint-Germain winger Angel Di Maria has been left out of the squad for Saturday’s French league game at Bastia.

The three-time defending champions did not give any reason for Di Maria’s absence, which comes on top of a growing injury list including Marco Verratti, David Luiz, Kevin Trapp and Presnel Kimpembe.

PSG coach Laurent Blanc will also be without the suspended Blaise Matuidi.

After nine league matches, PSG remains unbeaten and has a five-point lead over second-place Angers.

PSG hosts Real Madrid on Wednesday in the Champions League group stage.
