To face Nice this Wednesday at the Parc des Princes, Mauricio Pochettino chose a Leo Messi - Angel Di Maria and Kylian Mbappé attack in a classic 4-3-3. In case of victory, his men will already be autumn champions. Facing the 3rd in Ligue 1, the capital team will also be made up of Gianluigi Donnarumma as a goalkeeper. In front of him, the defense brings together the usual elements with a Marquinhos - Presnel Kimpembe hinge. We knew since Wednesday morning that Sergio Ramos, who made his debut with PSG last Sunday in Saint-Etienne (1-3), was absent from the group. On the sides, Achraf Hakimi and Nuno Mendes, the usual full-backs, will be present.
In the middle of the field, it is the trio Gana Gueye, Danilo Pereira, Éric Junior Dina Ebimbe who will be responsible for animating the heart of the game. Marco Verratti will take his place on the bench.
Fabio Quartararo, 2021 Moto GP World Champion, will fictitiously kick off the game.
On the sidelines of the meeting, Leo Messi, honored this Monday in Paris, will present his seventh Ballon d'Or France Football, a record.
PSG will continue to attend the summits this week by going to Lens this Saturday, training regularly in the top 5 of the championship since the start of the season.
Tuesday, at the end of the group stage of the Champions League, Paris will receive Bruges at 6:45 p.m.
But the match counts for butter.
Manchester City are guaranteed to finish first in the group and the Marquinhos partners in second place.
The composition: Donnarumma - Hakimi, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Nuno Mendes - Gueye, Pereira, Ebimbe - Messi, Mbappé, Di Maria.
