Marquinhos and Juan Bernat are not titular this Saturday afternoon in Amiens at the Stade de la Licorne in Ligue 1. Wounded for a long time, even if the second resumed in Dijon on Wednesday, they could come into play in order to gain rhythm in view of Dortmund-PSG, round of 16 first leg of the Champions League in Germany on Tuesday.
Thomas Tuchel, the coach, chose to install Navas in the goals, with Thiago Silva, already holders this Wednesday in Dijon. Mitchel Bakker has a second meeting after the Coupe de France quarter-final in Burgundy.
Before the attack will be led by Mauro Icardi and Edinson Cavani, also titular for the second time this week. They are supported by Julian Draxler and Angel Di Maria, with the duo Leandro Paredes and Gana Gueye in the middle. Young Tanguy Kouassi accompanies the captain in central defense while Herrera helps out at the right-back position in the absence of Thomas Meunier, left to rest, and Colin Dagba, injured.
Uncertainties before Dortmund
Marquinhos was injured (torn thigh) on January 22 in Reims. As for Juan Bernat, his calf snapped on January 12 against Monaco at the Parc des Princes. Their tenure in Germany becomes more and more problematic with such a long outage. For the first, Gana Gueye stands ready in the middle. For the second, Layvin Kurzawa should replace him just in case. On the bench are Sergio Rico, Thilo Kehrer, Marquinhos, Juan Bernat, Marco Verratti, Adil Aouchiche and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting.
For this trip to Amiens, Thomas Tuchel had left Neymar, Kylian Mbappé, Pablo Sarabia, Thomas Meunier and Layvin Kurzawa to rest, as well as Presnel Kimpembe, injured (thigh elongation). A doubt about the tenure of Neymar in Dortmund floats even if it is expected that it starts, according to the last echoes of his entourage and within the PSG.
The composition :
Navas - Herrera, Thiago Silva (cap.), Kouassi, Bakker - Di Maria, Paredes, Gueye, Draxler - Icardi, Cavani.
