Paris Saint-Germain manager Luis Enrique could use this FIFA international break to tinker with the possible starting 11. The capital club is heading into a challenging part of its schedule, with the matches against Newcastle United and Borussia Dortmund being of importance.
Enrique must devise an appropriate tactical plan to take his team to the UEFA Champions League round of 16. RMC Sport’s Fabrice Hawkins provides insights that suggest the Spanish boss is considering deploying a false nine formation.
This tactical shift could see Kang-in Lee and Marco Asensio emerging as the primary choices for the false nine role, relegating Gonçalo Ramos down the pecking order.

The report also emphasizes the strategic advantage that Randal Kolo Muani possesses. Capable of operating on the right wing, Muani emerges as a valuable option to rotate with Ousmane Dembélé.
It will be interesting to see what Enrique decides. PSG will face AS Monaco on Nov. 24, so this tactical plan could be in place for this match. Afterward, the Parisians will welcome Newcastle on Nov. 28 to the Parc des Princes.
