PSG VS RC Lens
The French champion begins the campaign to defend his title against Lens in a postponed match in the second stage, with a squad missing the Brazilian Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and the Argentines Angel Di Mare and Mauro Icardi who are infected with the new Corona virus.
In light of this deficiency, German coach Thomas Tuchel finds himself absent most of his stars before entering the arena of a busy schedule of matches.
Young players will join the ranks of the Parisian team in order to create a team capable of keeping up with the rhythm in the next two weeks, interspersed with a summit match with rivals Marseille at the “Parc des Princes” this Sunday in the third stage.
Tuchel may resort to pushing the offensive midfielders of Spain’s Pablo Sarabia and Germany’s Julian Draxler, despite the return of the second and his compatriot Tilo Kehrer from international competitions, similar to defender Prisnell Kimpembe.
After Saint Germain missed the opening stage (against Metz) as a result of his long continental season, he was supposed to play the Lens match on 29 August, but it was postponed in order to give the players a chance to catch their breath after reaching the Champions League final for the first time in the club’s history. Parisian.
And if the old health protocol of the League would postpone the match against Lens, the amendment made at the end of last week allows “the club to play matches if the results of 20 out of 30 players registered for the league matches, including at least one goalkeeper, are negative.”
As for Ness, who will play his first game at home after returning to the limelight in front of nearly 5,000 fans, it will be perhaps less exciting than expected given the club’s reputation for the hubbub of its fans on the stands.
Coach Frank Eyes said Tuesday, “What changes that?
But if the red and gold club loses some of its fans, it may surprise Paris Saint-Germain.
“We are clearly the youngest team, but there is no doubt that we will fight,” said goalkeeper Jean-Louis Lica.
