PSG in full force?


Not really. If Keylor Navas is operational, after a small alert with Costa Rica, Neymar, he felt discomfort in the right adductor on Monday, in training. He is out for "a

few days

", as Mauricio Pochettino hopes, citing only a "

small problem

". To see if this little problem is likely to deprive Neymar of the trip to Marseille, Sunday, during the 11th day of the French championship… For the rest, Angel Di Maria will serve his last game of suspension, while Leo Paredes and Sergio Ramos are injured. To see if Mauro Icardi, whose couple is struggling, is fit to play this Tuesday. Packages against Angers (2-1) last Friday, Marquinhos and Lionel Messi, they are operational.

What precedents between the two teams?


PSG-Leipzig, as we find ourselves ... The two teams have faced each other in the last two campaigns in the Champions League, with first a resounding Parisian victory (3-0) in the semi-finals, in August 2020, in Lisbon.

Angel Di Maria, Neymar Jr and Juan Bernat had shaken the nets.

Last season, it was much less brilliant for the PSG… Despite the opening of the score signed Di Maria, and a penalty missed by the same “Fideo” at 1-0, the Parisians, admittedly very diminished, had bowed in Germany (2-1) on the first leg.

On the return, a penalty from Neymar gave them the victory (1-0).

A victory as narrow as it is essential, knowing that they had only taken one point in the first three matches.

The rest, we know it: they had lined up three wins in a row to come out ahead of their group and reach the round of 16.

Finally play for PSG?


Looking at the balance sheet, all is well in Paris. After the setback against Lille in the Champions Trophy (0-1), at the beginning of August, Mauricio Pochettino's players have won nine of their ten matches in Ligue 1 (the ranking here) and they remain on a prestigious victory against Manchester City (2-0) in C1, after a much less convincing draw in Bruges (1-1). Except that the content is as sparkling as the numbers. Worrisome? “

There is an idea, a methodology, a clear way of working. We know that it may be invisible to some, from the outside, but we see it and we are very happy with the evolution,

”defended coach Pochettino at a press conference. And to add: "

We know that there is a context, a complexity of the situation we are going through, which means that things take longer to be seen. We can talk about some teams ahead of their project, such as Manchester City with Pep Guardiola or Manchester United with Six Alex Ferguson, where there had been an evolution in complexity. In general, we are happy with the evolution of these things and we hope that we can put things in place that will be more visible over time.

“Against RB Leipzig, it will be necessary to win, it is the most important. But if possible, to convince too.

In what state of form are the Red Bulls?


Not very good… Like their draw in Freiburg last Saturday (1-1), Jesse Marsch's players are disappointing at the start of the season. So much so that they occupy only a modest eighth place in the standings of the German championship and the last position in the hierarchy of Pool A, in C1. Suffice to say that there is already an emergency on all fronts, in Germany and in Europe. “

The numbers are clear. We need points,

”cowardly coach Marsch, who took over from Julian Nagelsmann this summer. “

We have a very good group, a very good coach who has his ideas. I remain confident. I am convinced that we will be able to do something good tomorrow (Tuesday),

”assures Frenchman Nordi Mukiele.

Who are the French in Leipzig?


They are three, starting with a former Parisian, Christopher Nkunku, author of nine goals and four assists in 11 matches since the start of the season.

The titi has grown large on the other side of the Rhine.

"

He's huge,

" ignites his ex-teammate at PSG, Presnel Kimpembe.

With the Red Bulls, he shares the locker room with two of his compatriots Nordi Mukiele, who passed through Montpellier, and Mohamed Simakan, defector from Strasbourg during the summer.

The French delegation in Leipzig was also relieved of two elements on the occasion of the last summer transfer window, Dayot Upamencano having gone to Bayern Munich and Ibrahima Konaté, in Liverpool.
