PSG vs. Newcastle: Who Is In the Starting 11 for the French Giants?

Paris Saint-Germain will welcome Newcastle United on Tuesday night at the Parc des Princes. Both clubs likely see this as a must-win contest for various reasons. 

For the Magpies, a road win keeps their UEFA Champions League knockout stage hopes alive. Meanwhile, for PSG, a win puts them one foot into the round of 16. The Ligue 1 side will punch their ticket if Borussia Dortmund loses to AC Milan.

So, how will the French giants line up against the English club? L’Equipe reports that Gianluigi Donnarumma reamins between the pipes. Although the changes will come on defense, Milan Skriniar will stay as a center-back, and Achraf Hakimi is the right-back.

However, the changes come with Lucas Hernandez sliding into the center-back position alongside Skriniar. With the Frenchman now in the central defense, Nordi Mukiele takes over the left-back role. 

There are also changes in the midfield from the first leg against Newcastle. With Warren Zaire-Emery injured, Fabián Ruiz slides into the starting 11 alongside Manuel Ugarte and Vitinha. 

As for the front three, manager Luis Enrique will go with Ousmane Dembélé, Kylian Mbappé, and Randal Kolo Muani.
