Official Lineup: Neymar, Mbappé, Icardi, and Di Maria Start Against Saint-Étienne

Paris Saint-Germain’s official starting lineup is out for their match against AS Saint-Étienne and despite six missing players, manager Thomas Tuchel was still capable of fielding an incredibly strong squad.

Keylor Navas is in goal as you would expect and in front of the Costa Rican is Juan Bernat at left-back, Abdou Diallo and Thiago Silva at center-back, and Thomas Meunier returns at right-back.

In the midfield, Tuchel will rely on Marquinhos and Leandro Paredes. The Argentine has looked decent in recent weeks and it will be interesting to see if he can continue his form.

On the wings, Neymar Jr. and Angel Di Maria will be looking to create for the strikers as well as score themselves.

Upfront, it’s Kylian Mbappé and Mauro Icardi leading the line in what has to be the most feared attacking duo in world football. We all know about Mbappé’s pace and with Icardi being the best poacher in the top five leagues in Europe.

I predicted that Tuchel may go with Tanguy Kouassi in the midfield but the 17-year-old will instead start on the bench along with Marco Verratti, Pablo Sarabia, Colin Dagba, Thilo Kehrer, Layvin Kurzawa, and Sergio Rico.

Paris Saint-Germain are four points ahead of Olympique de Marseille in Ligue 1 with two games in hand. This lineup should be more than enough to handle Les Verts who sit in 10th place.
