Paris Saint-Germain’s starting lineup against FC Bayern Munich has been revealed and there’s only one change from the match over RB Leipzig in the semi-final.

As I predicted, the lineup will feature Angel Di Maria, Neymar Jr., and Kylian Mbappé in attack. In the middle of the park, Marquinhos will be the anchor and Ander Herrera and Leandro Paredes ahead of him. On defense, Juan Bernat and Thilo Kehrer will be the full-backs and Presnel Kimpembe and Thiago Silva will be the center-back pairing.
The only change from the Leipzig match is Keylor Navas returns in goal after an injury kept him out of the semi-finals.
On the bench, many supporters will be sad to see Marco Verratti. The Italy international isn’t fit enough to play a full 90 minutes but I expect we could see him around the 60-minute mark. I also like Mauro Icardi to come on in the second half if PSG needs goals and Tuchel could switch to a 4-4-2.
This match promises to be one of the more exciting ones in previous years. Allez PSG!
