Neymar will make his return to competition for the Champions Trophy against OM on Wednesday evening (9 p.m.).
After making little change in his starting XI between the first two matches he led with the PSG, against Saint-Etienne (1-1) then Brest (3-0), Mauricio Pochettino will upset his team to challenge theOM, Wednesday during the Champions Trophy. Neymar, absent from the field since December 13 and an ankle injury against OL, will lead the Parisian attack against the Phocéens of a certain Alvaro Gonzalez.
Mbappé on the bench?
The “Ney”, but also Presnel Kimpembe, Danilo Pereira and Leandro Paredes participated normally in the session on Tuesday morning, in the rain of Camp des Loges and, according to The Parisian, should all be tenured. Thus, in the offensive sector, only Angel Di Maria should be renewed, since Kylian Mbappé and Moise Kean stayed with the usual replacements on Tuesday, Mauro icardi being the 3rd offensive element of the starting group.
Marco Verratti, he should = keep his role as a free electron in a number 10 position of a 4-2-3-1. In defense, Thilo Kehrer and Colin Dagba are in solitary confinement due to the Covid (like Rafinha), while Alessandro Florenzi and Layvin Kurzawa are not yet operational. What will benefit Timothée Pembélé (18), who played in the right lane of a 3-5-2 in Thomas Tuchel’s last game in 2020.
The probable eleven (according to The Parisian): Navas – Pembélé, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Bakker – Paredes, Danilo – Di Maria, Verratti, Neymar – Icardi.
Stronger than Neymar and Mbappé!
