Manchester City-PSG: Mbappé well present in training

by archysport

The 23 players summoned by Mauricio Pochettino for the trip to Manchester were present this Tuesday evening on the lawn of the Etihad Stadium for the last collective session before the clash against City, Wednesday evening (9 p.m.), in the Champions League. Including Kylian Mbappé, sick and absent from training on Monday at Camp des Loges. The French striker, author of a goal and five assists in Europe this season, will be one of the assets of PSG against the Citizens. In case of victory, the Parisians will be qualified for the knockout stages of the C1. Barring any surprise, Mbappé will start the meeting alongside Lionel Messi and Neymar on the attack front.

In addition, Sergio Ramos, present in the Parisian group for the first time since signing for PSG this summer, is also present in collective training. The Spaniard should start him on the sidelines against City. In central defense, Marquinhos and Presnel Kimpembe will start in the center. If there is still any doubt about the tactical scheme Mauricio Pochettino will use, the Argentine should renew a four-man defense.

In the midfield, several doubts remain: who of Gueye, Paredes and Wijnaldum will accompany Marco Verratti? Unless Angel Di Maria, on the sidelines against Nantes (3-1) this weekend, makes a surprise appearance in the eleven if it comes alive in 4-2-3-1. Finally, in goal, Keylor Navas is approached after being sidelined against RB Leipzig during PSG’s last European outing.
