Get young people to play? There is the possibility of five changes and we will see the evolution of the score. But I can’t have said a few days ago that we need to work together and finally put together a team made up mostly of young players. »

The MNM aligned from the start?
As announced by the French technician, Keylor Navas will start in the cages as in the previous round against Chateauroux (3-1). Present at Riyadh (Saudi Arabia) this Saturday in order to receive the prize for the best Arab sportsman of the year during the ceremony of Joy Awards, Ashraf Hakimi must return to training this Sunday and claims a starting place for the match against the amateur club of Regional 1. And with the injury absence of Nordi Mukielethe Tweety, Timothée Pembeleis also a possible solution on the right side of the defense, as reported The Team in its current edition. The central hinge Marquinhos-Sergio Ramos could be renewed. To the left, Nuno Mendes is tipped to find a starting spot, after an absence of several weeks due to a hamstring injury. In the middle of the field, Marco Verratti always missing. A great opportunity to seize for Renato Sanches. In the midfield, the Portuguese could be accompanied by the two Spaniards, Fabian Ruiz and Carlos Soler. Finally, in attack Christophe Galtier could rely on his attacking trio, Kylian Mbappe, Neymar Jr and Lionel Messi.
- The probable XI of the PSG (The Team): Navas – Hakimi (or Pembélé), Marquinhos (c), Ramos, Nuno Mendes (Bernat) – F. Ruiz, Sanches, Soler – Neymar – Messi, Mbappé
