He had not appeared in the starting lineup of PSG since late September and a trip to Nice. After a period of a month and a half of abstinence, only punctuated by four short appearances in the game, Moussa Diaby, 19, holds against Monaco this Sunday night. This is his third start in Ligue 1 this season.
Thomas Tuchel had this idea in mind for a few days already. A way to reward the patience of the U20 international and its good performances, even when it only has a few minutes to express itself. Right winger training, Diaby will evolve on one side in a role of piston, but rather on the left side. In addition, Marquinhos is spared for this trip to the Principality. The Brazilian, mobilized in the coming days with Seleçao in London, stayed in Paris.
In this context, Presnel Kimpembe, back in Ligue 1 after three games of suspension, also makes his return as holder in central defense. Just like Adrien Rabiot, on the bench since three meetings, and Edinson Cavani.
The eleven of the PSG: Areola – Kehrer, Thiago Silva, Kimpembe – Nkunku, Draxler, Rabiot, Diaby – Mbappe, Cavani, Neymar.
