Paris Saint-Germain welcomes this Sunday evening (9 p.m.) at the Parc des Princes AS Monaco, at the end of the 26th day of Ligue 1.
Five days after his resounding success on the lawn of FC Barcelona in the Champions League (1-4), the PSG receives Monaco, in the shock of the 26th lifting of the French championship. A meeting for which Mauricio Pochettino will once again have to do without the services of Neymar Di Maria and Bernat, but also of Sarabia, affected in the right foot against Barça.
Never change a winning team
This Sunday, the Parisian coach should renew his 4-3-3 and trust the same eleven men who martyred the Blaugrana this week. Thus, Navas is expected in the cage, with in front of him a four-way defense made up of Florenzi, Marquinhos, Kimpembe and Kurzawa. In the middle, Paredes and Gueye are expected to be teamed up with Verratti, while Icardi is tipped to start alongside Mbappé and Kean.
Golovin back and entry holder
Package last weekend during the draw conceded by ASM in front of Lorient (2-2), due to muscle pain, Aleksandr Golovin could make his return to Niko Kovac’s eleven. The Russian should occupy the position of left midfielder, in a flat 4-4-2. For the rest, it’s classic, with in particular the prolific attacking duo Ben Yedder-Volland expected in attack.
The probable PSG line-up: Navas – Kurzawa, Kimpembe, Marquinhos, Florenzi – Paredes, Verratti, Gueye – Kean, Icardi, Mbappé.
The probable component of ASM: Lecomte – Sidibé, Maripan, Badiashile, Caio Henrique – Golovin, Fofana, Tchouameni, Diop – Volland, Ben Yedder.
