Paris Saint-Germain will have its first fixture of 2022 in the upcoming Coupe de France round of 32 encounter with Vannes.
Several players are slated to miss this match, including forward Lionel Messi (COVID-19) and Sergio Ramos (red card suspension).
At the least, PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino could opt to start multiple of his regular talents for this upcoming key matchup, as noted by Ligue 1’s official website.
Donnarumma; Dagba, Kehrer, Kimpembe, Nuno Mendes; Herrera, Verratti, Dina Ebimbe; Simons, Mbappe, Wijnaldum
It is quite likely that Pochettino may elect to not feature a single South American talent for this match, especially as they all made their return to training on Sunday. Thus, Dutch midfielder Xavi Simons could go on to take part in this match, and he may end up being slotted upfront in PSG’s attack.
The likes of Kylian Mbappe and Marco Verratti may have a hefty responsibility to lead PSG to triumph in this contest in order to advance to the next round of the Coupe de France tournament.
