Real Sociedad – PSG: probable line-ups


By: Manu Tournoux

Finish the job. Here is the mission of Paris Saint-Germain this evening at Anoeta. Winners 2 to 0 in the first leg on February 14 at the Parc des Princes, the Ile-de-France residents leave with a head start. But everything is possible, especially in the Champions League. A competition where Kylian Mbappé’s teammates have experienced difficulties away from home this season. Beaten 4-1 at Newcastle on October 4, they lost 2-1 to AC Milan on November 7 before conceding a 1-1 draw in Dortmund against BVB on December 13. Nothing reassuring before facing Real Sociedad, who still believe in qualification.

For this shock, Luis Enrique will not be able to count on Marco Asensio, who has joined Milan Skriniar and Presnel Kimpembe in the infirmary. Uncertain for a while, Marquinhos and Danilo Pereira are in the group. But only one of the two should start in the Parisian team, which will play in 4-3-3. In the cages, no surprises since Gianluigi Donnarumma will start. In front of him, from left to right, we will find Lucas Hernanadez, Lucas Beraldo, Marquinhos and Achraf Hakimi. However, some media indicate that Danilo should start instead of Marquinhos.

Mbappé will be in the PSG eleven

In the midfield, Luis Enrique will a priori rely on the Fabian Ruiz-Vitinha-Warren Zaire-Emery trio. Here again, there is doubt about the presence of Fabian Ruiz in the starting lineup. Kang-in Lee might be preferred. Finally, no surprises in attack, since Bradley Barcola and Ousmane Dembélé will support Kylian Mbappé, aligned at the forefront. Despite the problems encountered with his trainer, KM7 will be a good starter this evening, barring any last minute problems. An eleven which therefore looks great and which Real Sociedad will have to be wary of. But Imano Alguacil, who will also opt for a 4-3-3, intends to thwart Parisian plans.

In front of Remiro, who will keep the goals, the four-man defense will be made up of the Galan-Le Normand-Zubeldia-Hamari Traoré quartet. Everyone will have a lot of work to contain the attacks from the Ile-de-France region. To win the midfield battle, the Basques will count on Brais Mendez, Martin Zubimendi and Mikel Merino. Finally, the attack, which will have to score several goals to qualify, will be led by the trio Mikel Oyarzabal, André Silva and Takefusa Kubo. A very interesting Spanish course on paper. Everything comes together to make this meeting, to be followed live on our site with live commentary from 9 p.m., thrilling.
