Thomas Tuchel largely reshaped his group for the PSG trip to Amiens this Saturday (5:30 p.m.), as part of the 25th day of Ligue 1. Between returns, players preserved and convalescence, the last trip with the shock against Dortmund (Tuesday, 9 p.m. on RMC Sport 1) will be done without a large number of Parisian executives.
Large workforce review planned for the Unicorn Stadium. Three days before traveling to Dortmund for the round of 16 first leg of the Champions League (Tuesday February 18, 9 p.m. on RMC Sport), Thomas Tuchel will have to deal with different parameters.
On the side of the uncertain players, he preferred to leave Neymar to rest. Touched to the ribs at the reception of Montpellier (5-0), the Brazilian has missed the last three Parisian meetings. Even if he should hold his place in Dortmund, Tuchel said he could not say “100%” the Ney’s presence at Signal Iduna Park on Tuesday. The German also pulls Kylian Mbappe out of the group, who played the entire French Cup match in Dijon (6-1).
Verratti and Marquinhos Returns
Marco Verratti, forfeited in Dijon after a blow received in the victory against Lyon (4-2), returns to the group. Marquinhos, assured of playing in Dortmund according to Tuchel, returns to the workforce as does Gueye, absent from Gaston-Gerard. If Dagba and Diallo should already be forfeited for the Champions League match, the German coach preserves Sarabia and Meunier, both authors of a convincing cup copy. Presnel Kimpembe is again absent since the match at Parc against Lyon.
The PSG group
Rico, Navas, Franchi – Kehrer, Bernat, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Kouassi, Bakker- Aouchiche, Verratti, Paredes, Gueye – Choupo-Moting, Herrera, Di Maria, Draxler, Icardi, Cavani.
