Psg Gears Up For Return To Ligue 1 Against Strasbourg

PSG faces a new challenge in Ligue 1 this Friday night, marking its return in the 20th matchday against Strasbourg. After the frustrating 2-2 draw against Brest at Parc des Princes last week, the team led by Luis Enrique is gearing up for the visit to Strasbourg but will have to cope with the absences of Dembele and Barcola.

Luis Enrique will be without Nuno Mendes, Presnel Kimpembe, and Milan Skriniar, who have been sidelined due to injuries. Bradley Barcola sent off in the clash against Brest, will also be absent at Maineau, along with Ousmane Dembele, who is rested due to thigh discomfort. To replace these two undisputed starters, the Spanish strategist could field Randal Kolo Muani and Marco Asensio alongside Kylian Mbappe.

Warren Zaire-Emery returns to the midfield after his start on the right side against Brest. The local player is expected to be accompanied by Manuel Ugarte. However, there is disagreement between L’Equipe and Le Parisien about the third midfield position, with L’Equipe favoring Fabian Ruiz, while Le Parisien prefers Vitinha.

In defense, Lucas Hernandez, suspended in the previous match, will play on the left flank. Marquinhos and Danilo Pereira will form the central duo, while Carlos Soler will take the right-back position. Gianluigi Donnarumma will continue to guard the goal.

Thus, PSG is gearing up for this crucial showdown, looking to put behind the disappointment of their last encounter and solidify their position at the top of Ligue 1.
