Christophe Galtier should still evolve his tactical device, this Wednesday evening in Montpellier (kick-off 9 p.m.).
Eager to find the right formula, the Parisian technician opted for a starting lineup which should take shape in 4-4-2 diamond with Danilo Pereira in low point.
Vitinha and Fabian Ruiz will support the Portuguese in midfield with Carlos Soler in a role of playmaker. The Spaniard replaces Neymar, absent due to muscle fatigue.
The Parisian composition
Donnarumma – Hakimi, Marquinhos (cap), Ramos, Mendes – F. Ruiz, Danilo, Vitinha – Soler – Messi, Mbappé
The former Valencia player will start behind the attacking duo Messi – Mbappé.
Finally, defensively, PSG can count on the return to the left lane of Nuno Mendes who had missed the reception of Reims as a precaution last Sunday.
The central Ramos – Marquinhos hinge is renewed with Achraf Hakimi on the right side.
Marco Verratti is suspended.
