Mbappé, big fear for Dortmund


By: Manu Tournoux

Aligned in the center on Saturday evening by Luis Enrique against Nantes (2-1), Kylian Mbappé was not very visible. For the Champions League match that PSG will play on Wednesday against Dortmund, Daniel Riolo hopes to see him on the left of the attack.

In three days, Paris Saint-Germain will play the rest of its season in the Champions League. Currently second in its group, the Parisian club will face the current leader, Borussia Dortmund. And to try to validate their place in the round of 16, PSG will necessarily count on Kylian Mbappé. Not very lively on Saturday evening against Nantes (2-1, 15th day of L1), the attacker did not shine in a central attacking position. A tactical placement that Daniel Riolo fears.

The journalist said he did not understand this choice by Luis Enrique to put the French world champion at the forefront in the axis. For the observer, it is on the left that Kylian Mbappé would do much more good for his team, while making the most of his qualities. “ In Dortmund, Luis Enrique will play with Mbappé in 9? Frankly, I don’t hope so. I want there to be (Gonçalo) Ramos in 9, I want him to put a guy on the right, whether it’s (Kang-in) Lee or (Randal) Kolo Muani.

“Stop with this madness”

For the journalist of RMC, it is therefore almost essential to see Kylian Mbappé return to his left side if Paris Saint-Germain wants to put all the chances on their side against Borussia. “ I hope that we will have Mbappé in his preferred position and that we will stop with the delirium of wanting to play him in 9. » The answer will be given shortly before the match which will be played next Wednesday, December 13.

As a reminder, PSG will qualify for the eighth if they win against BvB. In the event of a draw, he can also pass, provided that Newcastle do not beat AC Milan. Finally, the Parisians can also qualify in the event of a defeat, but they will have to count on a draw between the Magpies and the Rossoneri.
