Who will be the PSG team to face Bruges in the Champions League? There are still uncertainties over key positions on the eve of the match.
The whole world wants to know if Neymar, Mbappé and Messi, the diamonds of PSG, will make their debut in Bruges on Wednesday evening. Asked about the subject and under the pressure of the wait that surrounds this fire attack, Mauricio Pochettino gave the beginning of an answer. ” May be. Yes it’s possible “, he admitted at a press conference. During the match day opposition, Messi was associated with Mbappé, while Neymar was in the other team.
It remains to be seen who will be the eight other actors who will accompany them. With the absence of Verratti, who will not be there either in Lyon (or even in Metz) and the suspensions of Gueye and Di Maria, the options are a little less numerous.
During their last two outings against Reims and Clermont, the Parisians have evolved in a 4-3-3. Four men would therefore compete for three places: Herrera, in great shape since the start of the season, Paredes, Wijnaldum and Danilo. And it is not the establishment of Tuesday evening that will provide answers because the Argentinian technician has mixed the teams, associating potential holders and substitutes.
Not to miss
Navas closed face, smiling Donnarumma
In defense, Pochettino should renew the holders of the meeting against Clermont, even if Kimpembe was still feeling ankle pain in recent days. But the other big question concerns the position of goalkeeper. During the last training, Navas appeared with a closed face, when Donnarumma smiled broadly and even stopped to greet President Nasser Al-Khelaïfi and hug Leonardo, his sporting director. What his Costa Rican counterpart had not done.
During his press conference, Pochettino was evasive but his response again confirmed that he would not have decided the matter. “We will decide game after game. The reality is that having two goalkeepers like them only increases the competition and is good for the club. “ Tomorrow’s meeting against Bruges should give a real trend.
