The reception of Bordeaux Sunday evening at the Parc des Princes was richer in lessons than expected. While the list of those absent to welcome Dortmund on March 11 is growing, an eleven Parisian already seems to prevail.
It was a given that Marco Verratti and Thomas Meunier, warned to go, would miss Dortmund's reception at the Parc des Princes on March 11 as part of the knockout stages of the Champions League. The list of those absent for this shock grew longer this Monday evening, the PSG having communicated on the injuries Thiago Silva, affected by the femoral biceps of the right thigh, and Ander Herrera, who suffered a lesion in the left quadriceps. With presumed unavailability of at least three and four weeks. All these combined absences unfortunately facilitate the task of Thomas Tuchel in the development of his team composition to receive the BvB in two weeks and try to turn the tide (the Germans won 2-1 to go). Thiago Silva on the flank, Marquinhos is called to go down a notch to form the central hinge with Presnel Kimpembe in front of a Keylor Navas not frankly threatened by Sergio Rico. Thomas Meunier, he should be replaced by Thilo Kehrer and Juan Bernat preferred to a Layvin Kurzawa who at Signal Iduna Park it is true did not deserve. Marco Verratti suspended, the alternatives to recovery will not be legion either. Despite his disappointing performance in the Ruhr area, Idrissa Gueye seems inescapable, like a Leandro Paredes who was not in the group for the first leg but has clearly improved his coat of arms in recent weeks. With the obligation to strike hard offensively, Paris will probably not be deprived of the rest of its main hard-hitting arguments. A return of the famous four fantastic simultaneously on the pre – Neymar, Angel Di Maria, Kylian Mbappé, Mauro Icardi – is therefore not to be excluded. Unless Thomas Tuchel trusts more Edinson Cavani who has just registered his 200e Parisian goal and enjoys a unique rating with the Park public … The eleven possible against Dortmund: Navas – Kehrer, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Bernat – Di Maria, Gueye, Paredes, Neymar – Mbappé, Icardi (or Cavani).
