PSG forward Marco Asensio was substituted just before half time during Spain's Euro 2024 qualifier against Georgia in Tblisi.
  • Asensio injured in Georgia
  • Assisted opening goal
  • In fine form for PSG in Ligue 1

WHAT HAPPENED? Asensio was in fine form as Spain cruised to a 4-0 half-time lead against their outmatched opponents. But worryingly the former-Real Madrid man pulled up with what appeared to be a muscle injury and was taken off by manager Luis de la Fuente and replaced by Athletic Club's Nico Williams.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Asensio's strong start to the season continued, sparkling as Spain blew Georgia away creating Alvaro Morata's opening goal with a delicious angled cross.

He's found the back of the net twice and assisted as much in four games for the Parisian side in Ligue 1 this campaign.

WHAT NEXT FOR ASENSIO? PSG fans will be hoping that Asensio's withdrawal turns out to be precautionary with Spain already in such a formidable position in the game and he's fit to take on Nice next weekend at the Parc des Princes.
