Not 100% and preserved against Lens, Kylian Mbappé is back in the PSG group for the trip to Manchester City on Tuesday evening (9 p.m.).
Beaten at the Parc des Princes in the first leg (1-2), Paris Saint-Germain is expected in England on Tuesday night to challenge Manchester City. For this semi-final return leg of the Champions League, the French Champion will be able to count on an almost complete group, with the exception of the suspension of Idrissa Gueye, logically excluded from the outward journey.
Preserved against Lens, Kylian Mbappé is present
Another absent to deplore, the left side Juan Bernat, sidelined for many months following a serious knee injury. While uncertainty still hangs over the state of form of Kylian Mbappé, preserved against Lens on Saturday afternoon (2-1), the native of Bondy will make the trip to the other side of the Channel.
To face the offensive armada of Manchester City, PSG should therefore be able to count on all of its fireworks. In addition to Kylian Mbappé, Neymar, Angel Di Maria, Moise Kean or Mauro Icardi are well present in the list of players summoned, while Marco Verratti could evolve to a more advanced position on the field.
PSG will look great in Manchester
Idrissa Gueye, suspended, will still make the trip to support his teammates, while the defense is complete. The only scorer in the first leg, and still decisive against Lens in Ligue 1, captain Marquinhos will try to continue his good streak in the Champions League, he who enjoys scoring during the final stages.
In short, it is a Paris Saint-Germain that has great allure that has an appointment with its history, Tuesday evening (9:00 p.m.). As a reminder, Mauricio Pochettino’s men will have to score at least two goals to hope to reach the final. Chelsea will face Real Madrid in the other semi-final on Wednesday night, following a 1-1 draw in the first leg.
