With Paris Saint-Germain’s UEFA Champions League aspirations now over, the French side now looks ahead to a possible double-winning campaign. PSG has three league fixtures remaining as it aims to overtake current league-leaders Lille OSC and also stands among the final four in the Coupe de France tournament.
For the upcoming league encounter against Rennes, here is how PSG may line up, as noted by Ligue 1’s official website.
Navas; Florenzi, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Diallo; Paredes, Danilo Pereira, Gueye; Neymar, Di Maria, Icardi
There are no general surprises with this projected starting lineup, especially as Kylian Mbappe will miss this fixture due to both suspension and his right calf injury.
PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino could elect to go with a possible 4-3-3 setup for this fixture, which would leave Leandro Paredes with a bulk of responsibilities in carrying the load in the team’s midfield.
The likes of Neymar will surely look for a bounce-back performance in this upcoming matchup.
As mentioned, PSG still is vying for a domestic double-winning season, which would be the first for many current players on the squad.
