This Wednesday, October 4, PSG visits Newcastle United at St James' Park, on the occasion of the MD2 of the UEFA Champions League group stage. The Parisians will face the Magpies for the first time in history, and the expectation, as it could not be otherwise, is very high.
On the eve of the match the press already predicted who could be PSG's starting 11 for this match. Both L'Equipe and Le Parisien have published the same potential lineup, without major surprises and with the only doubt of who will be the center forward that will accompany Kylian Mbappe and Ousmane Dembele.
In goal, Gianluigi Donnarumma will be responsible for protecting Paris, with a defense in front of him made up of Achraf Hakimi, Marquinhos, Milan Skriniar, and Lucas Hernandez, from right to left. The French press does not foresee any new developments in the midfield, with Warren Zaire-Emery, Manuel Ugarte, and Vitinha in charge.
It is in the attack where both newspapers present doubts. There is no discussion regarding the wingers, which would be occupied by Kylian Mbappe and Ousmane Dembele, but it is in the axis of the offensive plot where they do not dare to guarantee whether Goncalo Ramos or Randal Kolo Muani will play.
PSG's predicted lineup vs. Newcastle: Donnarumma – Hakimi, Marquinhos, Skriniar, Hernandez – Zaire-Emery, Ugarte, Vitinha – Dembele, Ramos (or Kolo Muani), Mbappe.
