PSG Making Several Changes to Face Barcelona? Reported Lineup

Paris Saint-Germain aims to turn around the 3-2 aggregate situation in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal tie against Barcelona. Over the last few days, reports have emerged on what the Parisians’ starting 11 will be. 

Enrique contributed to the sluggish contest by choosing the starting 11 he did, leaving Warren Zaire-Emery and Bradley Barcola on the bench. However, it appears the 53-year-old learned his lesson, as both players are reportedly in the lineup.

RMC Sport reports the changes that the Spanish tactician intends to make in this do-or-die. Gianluigi Donnarumma remains in the goalkeeping position, but the changes come on defense, with Achraf Hakimi, Marquinhos, Lucas Hernández, and Nuno Mendes making up the backline.

Additionally, in the midfield, Zaire-Emery comes back in to play alongside Vitinha, and possibly Manuel Ugarte comes in, although Fabian Ruiz is still an option. Finally, in the attack, Ousmane Dembélé and Kylian Mbappé will have Barcola join them to frustrate the Barcelona defense.

Enrique has reportedly learned from his past mistakes and wants to have a new approach to ensure the team advances into the semifinals.
