PSG face the Turkish club Istanbul Basaksehir, this Tuesday evening at 9 p.m. at the Parc des Princes, in their last group match of the Champions League. The goal is to qualify for the round of 16 of the competition, played from February 2021. A draw is enough for the formation of Thomas Tuchel. During this time, Manchester United, without Anthony Martial or Edinson Cavani, will seek his ticket in Leipzig, also still in the race to continue the European adventure.
For this meeting, the German coach has called a group of 23 players unveiled this Tuesday morning. No surprises in this workforce: all the stars of PSG are present, from Neymar to Kylian Mbappé via Marco Verratti and Presnel Kimpembe. Marquinhos will be the captain this Tuesday evening while Paris can even finish first in their group, which would allow them to play their round of 16 to go away.
On the other hand, contrary to what the club had announced on Monday, Julian Draxler is ultimately not fit enough to join the group. Injured in a thigh against Dijon (4-0) on October 24, the German had resumed collective training last week. He hasn’t been lined up for a single second this season in the Champions League. He now hopes to be on the list of players selected for the shock against Lyon this Sunday still at the Parc des Princes. As expected, Mauro Icardi, Pablo Sarabia and Juan Bernat are continuing their treatment protocols.
Mitchel Bakker, Colin Dagba, Danilo Pereira, Angel Di Maria, Abdou Diallo, Bandiougou Fadiga, Alessandro Florenzi, Idrissa Gueye, Ander Herrera, Moise Kean, Thilo Kehrer, Presnel Kimpembe, Layvin Kurzawa, Alexandre Letellier, Marquinhos, Kylian Mbappé, Leandro Paredes, Timothée Pembélé, Keylor Navas, Rafinha, Sergio Rico, Marco Verratti.
