He not only scored the third goal of the night but also suffered an ankle injury from a challenge by Ethan Santos, who received a straight red card for the tackle.
Following the match, France's head coach Didier Deschamps expressed concern about a potential significant sprain, although ruling out a fracture. PSG's recent medical update confirmed a moderately severe sprain to Zaire-Emery's right ankle, and he is expected to undergo treatment until the winter break.
As a result of this injury, Zaire-Emery will miss PSG's upcoming Champions League fixtures against Borussia Dortmund and Newcastle United. His participation in the Trophee des Champions with Toulouse on January 3 is also uncertain.
The 17-year-old had been a regular starter under Luis Enrique in the early stages of the 2023-24 season, showcasing his talent with two goals and five assists in 15 matches. His impressive performances reportedly attracted interest from clubs like Manchester City, Manchester United, and Bayern Munich.
