PSG’s Projected Starting XI vs. Marseille: Who Starts In Le Classique?

As the saying goes, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” that’s what manager Luis Enrique is reportedly doing with his starting 11 against Olympique de Marseille in the latest installment of Le Classique

Enrique is going with the same starting 11 that picked up a 2-0 win over Borussia Dortmund on Matchday 1 of the UEFA Champions League. As a result, the Spanish boss isn’t changing anything when Marseille comes to the Parc des Princes on Sunday. 

Le Parisien reports that in the goalkeeper position, there’s Gianluigi Donnarumma, then joining him are Lucas Hernandez (LB), Marquinhos (CB), Milan Škriniar (CB), and Achraf Hakimi (RB). 

As for the midfielder, it’s the same three players: Manuel Ugarte, Warren Zaïre-Emery, and Vitinha. Then, in the attack, Kylian Mbappé, Ousmane Dembélé, and Randal Kolo Muani.

The capital club hopes this group of players can return PSG to their winning ways in Ligue 1. Last Friday, the French giants fell to OGC Nice 3-2, so they must get back on track. 

Furthermore, Marseille is coming into Le Classique in turmoil after their Spanish manager, Marcelino, resigned amid tensions with fans who complained about the team’s poor form and how the club has been run since the start of the season.
