Official Lineup: Neymar and Mbappé Start for PSG Against Montpellier

Kylian Mbappé and Neymar Jr. are in the starting lineup together for the second time this season as Paris Saint-Germain prepares to take on Montpellier HSC at the Stade de la Mosson.

Mauro Icardi lines up in the middle of the two most valuable players in the world to form a potent attack that should score goals against one of the better defensive units in Ligue 1.

In the midfield, manager Thomas Tuchel goes with Leandro Paredes, Idrissa Gueye, and Pablo Sarabia. It’s an interesting move to leave Julian Draxler on the bench as the German has been in decent form lately and Sarabia has played mostly in attack. We’ll have to see how this unit gels in the middle of the park.

In defense, Juan Bernat and Thomas Meunier start in the full-back position with Presnel Kimpembe and Thiago Silva in the middle. Keylor Navas starts in goal.

It’s a strong starting XI from Tuchel and they will need to put together a good performance if they hope to get a result at Montpellier. The hosts are undefeated in their last seven matches in their home stadium.

I predict a 2-2 draw tonight with Neymar and Mbappé once again getting on the scoresheet for PSG. Allez Paris!
