Report: PSG’s Projected Starting 11 vs. Angers – Will Messi and Neymar Start?

Paris Saint-Germain will return to Ligue 1 action on Wednesday with a home fixture against Angers.

PSG heads into the match with multiple injury concerns, especially as the likes of Marco Verratti (right thigh) and Nuno Mendes (hamstring) will not play in the contest.

At the least, the Ligue 1 powerhouse is set to see the returns of both Lionel Messi and Neymar against Angers. Messi had been away from the team after being granted a mini vacation following the 2022 FIFA World Cup, while Neymar recently received treatment for his minor sprained ankle issue.

As noted by Ligue 1’s official website, Galtier could roll out this starting 11 on Ligue 1 matchday 18.

Donnarumma; Mukiele, Marquinhos, Ramos, Bernat; Ruiz, Pereira, Vitinha; Soler; Ekitike, Messi

With PSG opting to not include Verratti in its squad list against Angers due to his right thigh ailment, Galtier could call on Vitinha to replace the Italian international in the side’s midfield setup for this Ligue 1 match.

Galtier could decide to pencil in Messi in the starting 11 for this league clash. The Argentine forward has been a regular in training as of late, and he sure is in need of playing time minutes to dust off any rust.

Overall, PSG has won 14 straight meetings against Angers in all competitions.
