No surprises.

In front of Gianluigi Donnarumma, the classic three-man defense is aligned with Danilo Pereira, Marquinhos and Sergio Ramos.

The pistons, on the sides, will be occupied, on the right, by Achraf Hakimi and, on the left, by Nuno Mendes.

In front, the three attacking stars are present while Kylian Mbappé was a substitute against Nice (2-1) last Saturday.

The world champion will be escorted by Neymar and Leo Messi.

With three goals, two against Juventus Turin and one in Haifa against Maccabi, the International tricolor dominates the ranking of scorers in the competition in Paris.

The last time PSG played in the Luz stadium, announced full, they lost for the Champions League final against Bayern Munich in 2020 (0-1), completed in the format of a final 8 in Lisbon due to Covid.
