Paris Saint-Germain will welcome Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday to the Parc des Princes to begin the UEFA Champions League group stage. The capital club looks to turn the page after losing 3-2 to OGC Nice on Friday as they look to get three points in the Group of Death.
So, who’s starting for the French giants? L’Equipe is reporting the projected starting 11 for the contest. At the goalkeeper spot, it’s Gianluigi Donnarumma, so there’s no change.
On the backline, there is one change from Friday’s game. Lucas Hernandez and Achraf Hakimi will play their respective full-back position, and in the center-back role, PSG counts on Milan Škriniar and Marquinhos to anchor the defense.

There will be another change in the midfield as Manuel Ugarte gets back into the starting 11 after coming off the bench Friday. Warren Zaïre-Emery and Vitinha will join the Uruguayan as the trio has become the stable group of players in that unit.
Finally, in the attack, Ousmane Dembélé and Kylian Mbappé will start on the wing. At the center-forward position, the French media outlet notes that it will be between Randal Kolo Muani and Gonçalo Ramos.
