Victorious of RB Leipzig last week (1-0, 4th day of the Champions League), 6 points on the clock, PSG is far from being out of the woods and is obliged to obtain a good result tonight on the lawn of Manchester United (5th day), leader of Group H with 9 points, to continue to believe in it. Thomas Tuchel finds Keylor Navas in the goals, spared against Bordeaux (2-2, 12th day of Ligue 1). In front of the Costa Rican have observed a defense to four, with Alessandro Florenzi, Marquinhos, Presnel Kimpembe and Abdou Diallo on the left. In the midfield, Danilo Pereira evolves as a sentry alongside Leandro Paredes and Marco Verratti. Finally, in attack, we find Kylian Mbappé and Neymar associated with Moise Kean.
At the Red Devils, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer chooses to field David de Gea in goal, rather than his double Dean Henderson, as the Spaniard was out after a shock received against Southampton in the Premier League this weekend. Behind, no surprise, with a four-way defense composed, from right to left, of Aaron Wan Bissaka, Victor Lindelöf, Harry Maguire and Alex Telles. In the middle, Scott McTominay is established alongside Fred and Bruno Fernandes. The Portuguese will be in charge behind the trio Marcus Rashford-Edinson Cavani-Anthony Martial.
