This Sunday PSG visits Stade de Rennais as part of MD8 of the French championship. The Parisians will play their third consecutive game played away from home, a context that has been difficult for them this season (only one victory in four games). Thus, after the recent defeat against Newcastle, Luis Enrique's men take on another complicated commitment.
On the eve of the match, and as usual, the French press is already predicting what could be the starting 11 chosen for this Ligue 1 confrontation. It should be said that lately, the French newspapers have failed in their predictions, but in general, they tend to be close to reality.
This time L'Equipe and Le Parisien did not agree. While the regional newspaper again glimpses an attack of four, the sports newspaper estimates that Luis Enrique will choose to return to his usual 4-3-3, which at times becomes a kind of 3-4-3 or 3- 3-4. In fact, LP placed Ousmane Dembele on the bench, in favor of Randal Kolo Muani.
PSG's lineup vs. Rennes according to L'Equipe: Donnarumma – Hakimi, Marquinhos, Danilo, Hernandez – Zaire-Emery, Ugarte, Vitinha – Kolo Muani, Ramos, Mbappe.
PSG's lineup vs. Rennes according to Le Parisien: Donnarumma – Hakimi, Marquinhos, Skriniar (or Danilo), Hernandez – Ugarte, Zaire-Emery – Barcola, Dembele, Mbappe – Ramos.
Le Parisien imagines a 4-2-3-1 system, with Dembele as a 'number 10', and Barcola occupying the left winger. Also note that both newspapers are considering the possibility of seeing Danilo Pereira as the starting center-back, at the expense of Milan Skriniar, with L'Equipe being the most forceful in this regard.
