Mauricio Pochettino, coach of the French club Paris Saint-Germain, announced the formation of the match that will bring him together shortly against his counterpart Strasbourg, in the match between the two teams at the Parc des Princes stadium, in the second round of the French League competition.
The formation witnessed the absence of the duo Lionel Messi and Neymar da Silva after they were left out of the match list, while the young star Kylian Mbappe leads the attack line.
The formation was as follows:
Defense: Hakimi – Keirer – Kimpembe – Diallo
Midfield: Wijnaldum – Herrera – Impeby – Draxler
Attack: Mbappe – Icardi
Messi had completed his move to the Parisian team in a free transfer deal after the end of his contract with Barcelona, and is expected to appear for the first time in his team’s shirt against Strasbourg.
Paris opened the season with a 2-1 victory over Troyes, and he wants to continue the victories this season, to get the league title after being kidnapped by Lille last season, and Messi’s first appearance will certainly be special in his new stadium.
On the other hand, Strasbourg seeks to compensate for the fall in the first round against Angers with two goals without a response, and wants to get a positive result against the star-studded Paris.
The Paris Saint-Germain squad list is as follows:
Navas – Rico – Franchi – Hakimi – Kimpembe – Diallo – Quierre – Pacchioppo – Petamasala – Rafinha – Danilo – Wijnaldum – Kierra – Draxler – Simmons – Gabi – Dina Ibembe – Michot – Sarabia – Icardi – Mbappe – Cale Mundo.
