This Sunday, September 3, PSG visits Olympique Lyonnais for MD4 of the French championship. On the eve of the game, it is already possible to predict who will be in the starting eleven for the team led by Luis Enrique.
The transfer market is over, and after intense weeks of rumors, Luis Enrique has his full squad, waiting to close a couple of additional exits. And yes, Kylian Mbappe is part of this and he will surely start against OL. In fact, Bradley Barcola, a recent Parisian signing from Lyon, could also have minutes.
This was confirmed by the PSG coach at a press conference. Randal Kolo Muani, for his part, will have to wait to debut with the Rouge et Bleu shirt. The Bondy native attacker "is recovering from a sprained ankle and will remain in care for the next few days," the club explained in its most recent medical report. Nuno Mendes, Presnel Kimpembe, and Kang-In Lee are also ruled out.
Well, for this meeting no big changes are really expected. Gianluigi Donnarumma should start in goal, with a defense in front of him made up of Achraf Hakimi, Marquinhos, Milan Skriniar, and Lucas Hernandez, from right to left. The midfield should be led by Warren Zaire-Emery, Manuel Ugarte, and Vitinha.
In attack, the wingers will be led by Kylian Mbappe on the left, and Ousmane Dembele on the right. The center forward who accompanies them should be Goncalo Ramos, back in the starting eleven after being absent due to physical discomfort in the last game.
PSG's predicted starting XI vs. OL: Donnarumma – Hakimi, Marquinhos, Skriniar, Hernandez – Zaire-Emery, Ugarte, Vitinha – Dembele, Ramos, Mbappe.
