A clever balance between restarting and preservation.
Four days before receiving Manchester City, Wednesday, in the semi-final of the Champions League, this is the signature of the team composition unveiled by Mauricio Pochettino to challenge Metz, this Saturday afternoon.
On the occasion of this meeting of the 34th day of Ligue 1, at the end of which Paris can temporarily take the lead of Ligue 1, the Argentine coach has made a new turn-over. Absent in the last two games due to shoulder pain, Keylor Navas regains his place in the goal. On the sides, Alessandro Florenzi and Layvin Kurzawa are back in the starting lineup around a central defense made up of the Kehrer - Kimpembe pair.
In the midfield, the Paredes Herrera tandem will be positioned behind a trident which will mark the return of Marco Verratti to the baton.
While Pablo Sarabia will occupy the right flank instead of a replacement Di Maria, and Neymar will take possession of the left side, the Italian will be given the post of leader.
On the bench Wednesday during the victory against Angers (5-0) in the Coupe de France, Kylian Mbappé will be aligned at the forefront.
Author of four goals in the last two games, Mauro Icardi will take his place on the bench.
The composition of PSG: Navas - Florenzi, Kehrer, Kimpembe (cap.), Kurzawa - Paredes, Herrera, Sarabia, Verratti, Neymar, Mbappé.
