PSG predicted lineup vs Borussia Dortmund

PSG predicted lineup vs Borussia Dortmund

The Champions League is where every Paris Saint-Germain coach is judged. It’s been going on for a while now, but the real objective is to win this tournament.

Luis Enrique is the latest coach to attempt the European quest and he will be doing it without Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr. He is certainly not starved of talent, though. Some great players have joined PSG this summer and Kylian Mbappe has been integrated back into the squad with a point to prove.

The late arrival of Randal Kolo Muani also gives Enrique another exciting attacking option to go with all the others, so Borussia Dortmund‘s defence will need to be at its best at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday night.

Here is the starting XI that Luis Enrique could go with against Borussia Dortmund as he seeks a winning start to the new Champions League campaign.

GK Gianluigi Donnarumma – With two other goalkeepers at the club currently injured, Donnarumma’s main job may just be to stay fit.

RB: Achraf Hakimi – One of the reliable performers for PSG, Hakimi will be getting to grips with some of the new players in the team, particularly those in the attack that he is trying to provide for.

CB: Marquinhos – By far the most settled part of Enrique’s team is the back four as he has been largely choosing the same combination all season. Marquinhos was rested against Nice as he was late back from international duty so should be fresh for this one.

CB: Milan Skriniar – Having arrived in the summer, Skriniar has claimed the other centre-back spot and looks like he will be very hard to shift – metaphorically and literally.

LB: Lucas Hernandez – He will be coming up against his brother later in the group stage but Hernandez needs to make sure his team is in a position of strength before they face AC Milan.

CM: Warren Zaire-Emery – The 17-year-old midfielder seems to have maturity beyond his years and is a really important part of Enrique’s plans, even for huge games like this.

CM: Manuel Ugarte – Like Marquinhos, he missed out against Nice due to international commitments but will surely take Carlos Soler’s place in the midfield.

CM: Vitinha – A slight lack of central options for Enrique means that Vitinha has a pretty safe spot in this midfield at the moment.

RW: Ousmane Dembele – One part of the all-French front three that could be on display, Dembele comes up against one of his old teams.

ST: Randal Kolo Muani – He only came off the bench against Nice but there is an expectation that Kolo Muani will take Goncalo Ramos’ place upfront against Dortmund.

LW: Kylian Mbappe – Having netted twice against Nice, it is clear that Mbappe will keep doing what he does and it is up to everyone else to match him.
