On the eve of the game, the first trends concerning the compositions of OL / PSG teams already appearing. While a team similar to that seen in Haifa is expected on the PSG side, OL had to switch to a two-point attack.
Four days after their complicated trip to Israel on the lawn of Maccabi Haifa (3-1), PSG will chain an equally hard one on the lawn of OL Sunday evening (8:45 p.m.) on the occasion of the 8th day of L1. For this match, Christophe Galtier will not recover either Kimpembe or Renato Sanches but he should be able to have Keylor Navas on the bench. Several players are suffering from the blows received on Wednesday evening and the medical update of the day should allow us to find out more, but it is a starting lineup quite close to that of Wednesday which is expected for OL / PSG.
Donnarumma will continue in goal and, for lack of solutions, the three-man defense in front of him should therefore be the same. It is on the wings that change is expected with the return of Hakimi on the right side. On the left side, Bernat also postulates while Nuno Mendes has been less sharp in recent weeks. In the axis, Vitinha came out early in Haifa and should be able to continue. It’s more vague for Verratti and Ruiz is a serious candidate for the eleven. In attack, the three should be renewed. Present at a press conference at 1 p.m., Galtier should say more.
A possible team composition of PSG against OL: Donnarumma – Ramos, Marquinhos, Danilo – Hakimi, Vitinha, Verratti or Ruiz, Bernat – Messi, Mbappé, Neymar
As for OL, the average start to the season and Lacazette’s desire to be a little more supported in attack could lead to the establishment of an attack with two points and two wingers, i.e. an offensive element of more, in a 4-4-2. It is Dembélé who would accompany the captain of OL, Tête and Toko Ekambi taking care of the corridors. For the rest, Tolisso and Caqueret should be associated in the midfield while Boateng’s package in defense places Thiago Mendes as the No. 1 solution with Lukeba in the centre.
The probable team composition of OL against PSG: Lopes – Gusto, Mendes, Lukeba, Tagliafico – Tetê, Tolisso, Caqueret, Toko-Ekambi – Lacazette, Dembélé
