Without Lionel Messi, package following the blow received on his left knee Sunday night, Mauricio Pochettino had to review his line of attack this Wednesday in Metz, the red lantern of Ligue 1. The Parisian coach chose to align Mauro entry Icardi, who has just scored the winning goal against Lyon.
This is the Argentine's first tenure since the trip to Brest on August 20.
The former Inter captain will share the attack with Kylian Mbappé in what could look like a 4-4-2 diamond, the device already used a month ago on Brest soil.
Neymar will be the Parisian team's playmaker.
Angel Di Maria is on the bench.
In midfield, Danilo Pereira will make his return to the eleven, with Rafinha and Georginio Wijnaldum.
In defense, Achraf Hakimi and Nuno Mendes will animate the corridors.
It's classic in central hinge with Marquinhos and Presnel Kimpembe.
Finally, in the cage, Pochettino decided.
For the moment, the coach seems to want to opt for alternation one in two matches.
It is therefore Navas, and not Donnarumma, who will keep the Parisian goal at the Stade Saint-Symphorien, he who was replacing Sunday at the Park.
