Real Sociedad-PSG, lineup: huge choice from Luis Enrique for Mbappé!


By: Manu Tournoux

Paris Saint-Germain travels to San Sebastian to challenge Real Sociedad in the round of 16 second leg of the Champions League, this Tuesday (9 p.m.). Here is the expected line-up for the capital club.

Even when the sky seems clear, the Paris Saint Germain always finds a way to ignite as a pivotal moment approaches. The preparation for this second round against Real Sociedad was interfered with by the management of Kylian Mbappé. Since the Bondy prodigy announced to his management his choice to leave Paris next summer, Luis Enrique has stripped him of all his privileges.

Absent against Lille, replacing in Nantes and leaving on the hour mark against Rennes, Kylian Mbappé was therefore substituted at half-time in Monaco, in this stadium which is so dear to him. A strong choice which created a lunar scene in the Principality, where the attitude of the scorer was also singled out. While the two men explained themselves on Sunday, Mbappé will still fuel all the debates this Tuesday, before and during this match in San Sebastian against Real Sociedad.

Luis Enrique decides for Mbappé!

If Luis Enrique keeps repeating “ that we will have to learn to win without Kylian“, it will be difficult to imagine not seeing the star start this crucial meeting. For the threat he embodies, but also for his impact during the first round, where his goal freed the Parisians. Mbappé is therefore expected from the kick-off of this second round against Real Sociedad. His coach’s coaching will be another topic during the match.

The other arrows Ousmane Dembélé and Bradley Barcola could support Kylian Mbappé, in front of a three-way midfielder where Warren Zaire-Emery must make his return. Vitinha is also expected, while Manuel Ugarte is in the balance with Fabian Ruiz for third place. In defense, Marquinhos returns to the group. Good news which could allow the Brazilian to be aligned alongside Lucas Hernandez, if Nuno Mendes were to start on the left.

The expected lineup for PSG : Donnarumma – Hakimi, Danilo Pereira, Marquinhos (or Beraldo), Hernandez – Zaire-Emery, Vitinha, Fabian Ruiz – Dembélé, Mbappé, Barcola.
