The UEFA Champions League returns and this Wednesday, October 4, PSG has the complicated task of facing Newcastle United at St James' Park, within the framework of the MD2 of the group stage of the top European competition.
While Luis Enrique's men are coming off a 0-0 draw against the last-placed team in Ligue 1, the Magpies arrive in a sweet moment after not losing any of their last five matches.
On the eve of the match the press already wastes ink writing about what could be the match lineups. In this case, we will focus on the potential starting 11 of the English team. Le Parisien predicts a luxury team, considering the available squad that Eddie Howe has.
The goal would be covered by Nick Pope, with a defense in front of him consisting of Kieran Trippier, Jamaal Lascelles, Fabian Schar, and Dan Burn, from right to left. The midfield would be commanded by Sean Longstaff, Bruno Guimaraes, and Sandro Tonali. In attack, we would find Miguel Almiron, Alexander Isak, and Anthony Gordon.
Newcastle's predicted starting XI vs. PSG: Pope – Trippier, Lascelles, Schar, Burn – Longstaff, Guimaraes, Tonali – Almiron, Isak, Gordon.
Eddie Howe's team did not shine at the San Siro and could not go beyond a goalless draw against AC Milan, but they recovered by stringing together three consecutive wins with a victory against Manchester City in the League Cup included. The Magpies face this game in top form.
