PSG’s Projected Starting XI vs. RC Lens: Will Dembélé and Mbappé Start?

Paris Saint-Germain will be searching for their first win of the 2023-24 Ligue 1 season. In their first two games, the capital club has a pair of draws for two points and 11th in the table. 

Furthermore, the French giants’ attack has only scored one goal in 180 minutes. Still, that will be changing soon. L’Equipe revealed the projected starting 11 for PSG in their contest against RC Lens on Saturday at Parc des Princes. 

So, the goalkeeper sees no changes with Gianluigi Donnarumma occupying the position. On the backline, the full-backs consist of Lucas Hernandez and Achraf Hakimi; meanwhile, Marquinhos and Milan Škriniar will be the center-backs.

In the midfield, Manuel Ugarte and Warren Zaïre-Emery will be the starters. The French media outlet has an issue with the other starter because they don’t know who between Vitinha and Fabián Ruiz will join them. 

The real change is in the attack, with Ousmane Dembélé and Kylian Mbappé coming into the starting 11. Both came off the bench in the 1-1 draw against Toulouse FC last Saturday. However, after easing them into action, manager Luis Enrique is ready to see them go for 90 minutes.

Finally, at striker, Gonçalo Ramos gets the start and could benefit from having these two on the pitch to score his first goal as a PSG player. 

Will PSG’s offensive woes continue, or can Dembélé and Mbappé’s jolt turn them into a deadly scoring team?
