Report: PSG’s Projected Starting 11 vs. Lille OSC – Tactical Changes in Store for Messi?

Days removed from its UEFA Champions League round of 16 first leg defeat to Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain will return to Ligue 1 action on matchday 24 with a home fixture against Lille OSC.

Not much has gone PSG’s way as of late. The Ligue 1 powerhouse is currently on a season-high three-match losing streak in all competitions.

As noted by TyC Sports, PSG manager Christophe Galtier could roll out these 11 players to start against Lille OSC.

Donnarumma; Pereira, Ramos, Kimpembe, Bernat; Verratti, Vitinha, Ruiz; Messi, Neymar, Mbappe 

Galtier has made a multitude of tactical changes in his first season as PSG manager. For PSG’s upcoming clash with Lille OSC, he could have his squad play under a 4-3-3 formation, with Marco Verratti leading the team’s midfield setup.

Lionel Messi has blossomed as a playmaker in Ligue 1 play this season, tallying 10 assists in 18 such matches played. Galtier could call on the Argentine forward to take hold of the right wing position in the 4-3-3 formation on Ligue 1 matchday 24.

PSG has come away with a win in each of its last three meetings against Lille OSC.
