On Sunday night, the top team in Ligue 1, PSG, will travel to their biggest rival, Marseille, for Le Classique, hoping to add more points to their lead.
Even though PSG now leads Marseille by five points, they have exhibited some sloppiness.
Christophe Galtier is still dealing with the fallout after Paris Saint-Germain F.C. lost to Bayern Munich in a Champions League game, and the absence of Neymar is a significant blow to the team. But still, the team is managing its formation in such a way that it
could win against Marseille.
Even though various factors have complicated Galtier’s lineup decisions,
this is the eleven that could end up starting at Marseille.
The lineup of the PSG team is as follows: (4-3-1-2) formation.
Goalkeeper (G.K.) Gianluigi Donnarumma: The best PSG player to
defend against Marseille is Donnarumma. Hopefully, he will get a clean sheet in this match.
Right back (R.B.) Achraf Hakimi — Hakimi got injured in
the match against Lille. Hakimi may be able to return here. If the Moroccan cannot play, there is another player Nordi Mukiele, who can join the squad.
Centerback (C.B.) Marquinhos: He is back at work and will likely rejoin the squad immediately.
Center back (C.B.): Sergio Ramos: He announced his retirement from the international format to fully focus on club football. Ramos will form a formidable left-wing pairing with Marquinhos.
Left back (L.B. ): Juan Bernat should be reinstated to the starting lineup after missing the game against Lille due to an injury sustained by Nuno Mendes.
Defensive midfielders (D.M.): Marco Verratti Verratti is an indispensable component in PSG’s midfield and one of the best players in the world.
Central midfielders (CM): Danilo Pereira; Galtier will likely go with a more seasoned midfielder when facing up against such formidable opponents.
Central midfielders (CM): Vitinha Vitinha is one player in whom Galtier has complete faith. The Portuguese guy should be safe in his current position.
Attacking midfielder (AM) Lionel Messi He and the young star Kylian Mbappe saved PSG from going on a losing streak. Messi scored a free kick to win in the game’s final minutes. Messi is a seven-time Ballon d’Or winner.
Striker (S.T.): Hugo Ekitike Neymar will soon return and relax, possibly as early as March. But he’s suffering from a terrible ankle injury this time, which could give Ekitike a shot at starting.
Striker (S.T.): Kylian Mbappe He is the team’s young star. He is ready for a match-winning performance.
These are the players who will be in the PSG starting XI today. Fans of both teams are ready to watch PSG vs. Marseille. The match will take place in the home ground of Marseille. The stadium has a seating capacity of 67,000. It has a long history; it was inaugurated back in 1937, and its last renovation took place in 2014.
Fans of both teams are excited about this clash between two French giants. The stadium will be almost full, both teams will fight, and a winner will be decided. May the best team win.
PSG will be one step closer to winning the league title if they win on Sunday. But on the other hand, if the team loses, the points gap will be reduced between PSG and Marseille.
Neymar Jr. is injured, so PSG Manager Galtier expects Messi and Kylian to play and help the team win this match. Now it’s the duty of the World Cup winner and the runner-up player to make PSG win this challenging game on Sunday.
Marseille and PSG’s Last 5 Games:
Marseille had only won one game, while PSG had three. There is only one draw between both teams.
