Rennes - PSG: Neymar in charge, Kean in tip


In the absence of Marco Verratti, injured, and Kylian Mbappé, suspended, Mauricio Pochettino has chosen to replace Neymar as playmaker

New blood and light spirits.

Mauricio Pochettino decided.

Five days after the elimination in the semi-final of the Champions League against Manchester City (2-0), the Argentine coach has chosen to breathe a little freshness into the ranks of PSG to challenge Rennes, this Sunday evening , on the occasion of the last meeting of the 36th day of Ligue 1.

If the unbeatable Keylor Navas remains in the cage, the Parisian technician has chosen to change 45% of the team which lost in England on Tuesday evening.

While the Marquinhos - Kimpembe hinge will hold the defense, the side posts will this time be entrusted to Colin Dagba and Layvin Kurzawa rather than Florenzi and Diallo.

It also turns in the midfield where the Portuguese Danilo Pereira was preferred to Leandro Paredes to make the pair with Ander Herrera.

In the absence of Marco Verratti, victim of a distension of the internal lateral ligament of the right knee, Neymar will find him the post of playmaker and will be associated with Di Maria on the right flank and Draxler, who is making his return, on the left.

But the surprise of the evening is the tenure of Moise Kean. To find traces of the last appearance at kickoff, we must indeed go back to April 18 when the success achieved at the Parc des Princes against Saint-Etienne (3-2). If he played almost half an hour Tuesday in Manchester, the Italian had only two small appearances against Metz in the Championship (1 minute) and Angers in the Coupe de France (18 minutes) to put in their mouths.
