Report: PSG’s Projected Starting 11 for the Crucial Ligue 1 Home Fixture vs. Brest

Paris Saint-Germain is set to meet Brest for a crucial Ligue 1 home fixture on matchday seven.

PSG enters this match in the midst of a tightly contest Ligue 1 race, as it is tied on points with rival Olympique de Marseille. However, PSG does sit comfortably atop the league standings with an astounding 24 goals scored and a mere four goals allowed.

As noted by TyC Sports, here is how PSG manager Christophe Galtier could roll out his starting 11 against Brest.

Donnarumma; Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Ramos; Hakimi, Verratti, Vitinha, Mendes; Messi, Mbappe, Neymar

Galtier will have multiple options for just which two midfielders will start in his double-pivot setup for the contest. Overall, he could once again call upon Marco Verratti and Vitinha to slot into the two midfield spots in a pivotal Ligue 1 match.

Neymar did not earn a start in PSG’s Ligue 1 win over Nantes last week, as he wound up being fresh for its UEFA Champions League home group stage fixture against Juventus. He could end up starting the contest against Brest on the bench as a way for him to be rested a bit for PSG’s Champions League clash with Israeli side Maccabi Haifa next week.

PSG has won 11 straight meetings against Brest in all competitions.
