Arnaud Kalimuendo, first!
After a tenure this summer in a friendly match against Sochaux at the Parc des Princes, the young 18-year-old striker trained at PSG knows this Thursday evening in Lens his first tenure in Ligue 1. Hope of the club's training center, Kalimuendo takes advantage of the absences of Neymar, Mbappé or Icardi, positive for Covid-19, for the Parisian debut in the league this season.
He will form the attacking trio with Sarabia and… Kays Ruiz, another great hope of the Parisian team and who is also making his debut in Ligue 1. The young attacking midfielder replaces Julian Draxler, first announced as the holder.
The German felt a small contracture in his right adductor in training on Wednesday and was preserved.
In the midfield, despite all absent from PSG, Thomas Tuchel lines up a seductive trident: Verratti, Gueye, Herrera.
It is in defense that the choices of the German surprise a little more with the presence of three left-handers, including that of Layvin Kurzawa in the axis alongside Presnel Kimpembe, captain.
In the right lane, Thilo Kehrer takes place while Marcin Bulka is indeed holder in the Parisian goal.
The eleven of PSG:
Bulka - Kehrer, Kimpembe (cap.), Kurzawa, Bernat - Herrera, Gueye, Verratti - Ruiz, Kalimuendo, Sarabia.
