PSG-Reims, lineup: new strong choice from Luis Enrique for Mbappé!


By: Manu Tournoux

Paris Saint-Germain welcomes Stade de Reims for the 25th day of Ligue 1, this Sunday (1 p.m.). Here is the expected line-up for the capital club.

Water has flowed under the bridge since Paris Saint-Germain’s victory in Reims on November 11 (0-3). And yet, the news from the capital club sounds like an echo of this match, at a time when the two teams are due to meet at the Parc des Princes this Sunday, at lunchtime (1 p.m.).

The tumultuous relationship between Luis Enrique and Kylian Mbappé is the subject of much debate. A few months ago, the French world champion had signed a hat-trick before hearing his coach’s reproaches about his involvement in the game. A speech which has become even more muscular in recent weeks, with strong choices, since Mbappé has had fragmented playing time in PSG’s last four matches in Ligue 1.

Mbappé-Luis Enrique, end of the story?

Kylian Mbappé, however, gave the best answer, in the most important meeting, in the round of 16 second leg of the Champions League. Author of a double against Real Sociedad (2-1), the Bondy prodigy restored his image during an XXL performance. Difficult, in this context, to imagine him starting on the bench for the reunion with Stade de Reims. Mbappé could be accompanied by his accomplices Ousmane Dembélé and Bradley Barcola in an animation which worked perfectly on Wednesday, with the former Barcelona player in a central role to leave the left side to the top Parisian scorer.

Central hinge Hernandez-Beraldo also scored points for his personality with the ball. Although both players are left-handed, they could be renewed. The other executives are expected at kick-off, from Zaire-Emery to Vitinha, including Hakimi and Donnarumma in great form.

The expected lineup for PSG : Donnaruma – Hakimi, Hernandez, Beraldo, Mendes – Zaire-Emery, Vitinha, Ruiz – Barcola, Mbappé, Dembélé.
