PSG: Marquinhos, Kimpembe and Ramos will be on the trip to Manchester

PSG should regain its central defense against Manchester City on Wednesday evening, during the 5th day of the Champions League. After their absence from the weekend against Nantes (3-1), Marquinhos and Presnel Kimpembe participated this Monday at the end of the morning in the collective session of the day. A session during which the holders of the victory on Saturday night remained indoors. Just like Mauricio Pochettino, who let his assistants lead the session. Kylian Mbappé, sick, was apologized for the day but his participation against City is not called into question.

With the substitutes for the weekend, Marquinhos and Kimpembe thus performed a normal session. Angel Di Maria, in the group against Nantes but remained on the sidelines, was also present with the two central. The latter were preserved at the end of the international truce. Affected with hamstrings since November 3, Kimpembe has resumed collective training for almost a week but was too tight for the reception of Nantes.

The other good news comes from Sergio Ramos’ physical condition. The defender to the four Champions League with Real Madrid will be present in the group that travels to Manchester, as announced by L’Equipe and RMC. The Spaniard has been training with the Parisian squad for more than two weeks now and he is able to play again in competition. He has not played a minute since May 5 and a lost Champions League semi-final against Chelsea.

Gianluigi Donnarumma, absent due to gastroenteritis on Saturday, also returned to training. Will the Italian start on Wednesday? According to the logic put in place by Pochettino, Keylor Navas should continue after his tenure against the Canaries. Especially since the Costa Rican will be suspended against Saint-Etienne next Sunday after the red card received in the 65th minute of play.

The Parisians now have an appointment in Manchester for a final training before the shock on Wednesday. They will take off at the end of the morning on Tuesday towards the north of England. Mauricio Pochettino will be at a press conference at 6:15 p.m. (French time) from the Etihad Stadium. The first minutes of training will be broadcast by the club at 7 p.m. (French time).

The probable eleven: Navas – Hakimi, Marquinhos (ch.), Kimpembe, Nuno Mendes – Paredes, Verratti, Wijnaldum (or Gueye) – Messi, Mbappé, Neymar.
