Who says you don't change a winning team? Five days after the return of PSG to competition and its very large success (9-0) on the lawn of Le Havre (L2), Thomas Tuchel made some adjustments in his starting eleven. While teaming up with Marquinhos in the line of defense last weekend, Presnel Kimpembe will start this second friendly match against the Belgians of Waasland-Beveren on the sidelines.
To face the red lantern of the Jupiler League, Tuchel has indeed decided to revive the Parisian captain Thiago Silva, who had not played at the Parc des Princes since February 23 and the success (4-3) gleaned against Bordeaux in League 1.
Mitchel Bakker debuts
If Layvin Kurzawa, who had not made the trip to Normandy on Sunday, is back in the group, he does not start the game. While Juan Bernat is saved for the second time in a row, it is again the young Dutch Mitchel Bakker who will occupy the left flank at kickoff.
The other two changes concern the defensive midfield. The area was occupied by the doublet Paredes - Herrera Sunday, it returns this Friday to the Verratti - Gueye tandem. The offensive animation has not undergone any modification since it is with its star quartet Neymar - Di Maria - Mbappé - Icardi that PSG will celebrate its reunion with the public of the Parc des Princes.
The composition of the PSG:
Navas - Kehrer, Silva (cap.), Marquinhos, Bakker - Verratti, Gueye - Neymar, Di Maria - Mbappé, Icardi. Entr. : Tuchel.
