The alternation of goalkeepers at PSG ended (provisionally) this Saturday. Mauricio Pochettino has once again established Keylor Navas, after Metz. This Tuesday, the capital club will host Manchester City on the second day of the group stage of the Champions League. This choice is probably justified as the coach refuses to justify himself in this area.
This Saturday, the Mancuniens went to win at Chelsea (0-1). This will be the first full-scale test for the partners of Marquinhos, again holder like Presnel Kimpembe. When they entered the competition, the Parisians obtained a laborious draw in Bruges (1-1). Leo Messi, hit in the knee against Lyon on Sunday, September 19 and absent all week (two missed outings), is expected against one of his former coaches, Pep Guardiola.
For the rest, the Argentine technician has decided to make five changes compared to the eleven holder elected in Metz (1-2) this Wednesday in Moselle. Nuno Mendes, Georginio Wijnaldum, Danilo Pereira, Rafinha, Mauro Icardi come out and Abdou Diallo, Gana Gueye, Leandro Paredes, Ander Herrera and Angel Di Maria enter. Neymar and Mbappé are also holders in attack in a 4-3-3 composition.
For now, Paris has won its first seven matches of the season in the league, including the last two in added time against Lyon and the Lorrainers. He has not lost since the Champions Trophy in Israel (1-0) against Lille. Against Montpellier, he intends to continue his series as well as to avoid any injury in view of the big match on Tuesday.
The starting team of PSG: Navas – Hakimi, Marquinhos (cap), Kimpembe, Diallo – Gueye, Herrera, Paredes – Di Maria, Neymar, Mbappé.
