Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) will play its fifth Group F match against Newcastle United at the Parc des Princes in Paris, France, at 5 a.m. on the 29th (Korea time). PSG is in second place with six points (two wins and two losses), while Newcastle is in fourth place with four points (one win, one draw and two losses).
PSG, which suffered a 1-4 defeat at its first meeting with Newcastle, had one win and one loss in two consecutive matches against AC Milan. It is second in the group, but there is a possibility that it will fall to the bottom. In order to survive Group F, which is so difficult, we have to catch Newcastle somehow. Considering that there are many injured players, PSG is more likely to win than Newcastle, but considering that it suffered a crushing defeat in its last showdown, we cannot afford to let our guard down.
Fortunately, the atmosphere at PSG is good. As the team continues to win consecutive games, it is solidifying its lead in Ligue 1. It also beat AS Monaco 5-2 in the previous match. “The competition is very fierce. The match against Newcastle is a decisive match. I am confident that we can compete. If the Parc des Princes is hotter, it will be too much for the rival team. We look forward to spectators’ support. If they cheer us with passion and enthusiasm, we will play like the final match,” Enrique said in a press conference. 토토사이트
Watchers also gave assessments on the current situation. “PSG is not the team I want at the moment. I still have to conduct experiments and I am in the process of researching. I am the one who helps players. The team that I hope for is far from PSG right now. There is a lot of room for improvement,” Enrique said.
Meanwhile, the starting lineup is drawing keen attention. France’s “Foot Mercato” said that nine seats are fixed for now. The goalkeeper is expected to feature Gianluigi Donnarumma, while the defense line will feature Nordi Mukiele, Luca Hernandez, Milan Shkriniar, and Ashraf Hakimi. The team considered injured Keylor Navas, Marquinos, Fresnel Kimpembe, and Nunu Mendes.
Fabian Lewis and Manuel Ugarte were located in the midfield. As Warren Zaire-Emery was injured during the call-up of the French A-team, Lewis is likely to step up. Kylian Mbappe and Usman Dembele will take the center stage in the attack. “Foot Mercato” said, “Two out of 11 seats are not certain. Vitinha, who has good performance and good influence in the midfield, seems likely to start, but Lee Kang-in may play. Harmus and Randall Colo Muani are still competing. Harmus, who plays a pivotal role, is ahead of Colo Muani.”
Lee Kang-in showed good performance before the A-match and returned after scoring a total of one goal and two assists against Singapore and China. He missed the match against Monaco, and Vitinha, who came out instead, showed good performance by scoring a goal. Vitinha alternately plays the same role as Lee Kang-in as a direct competitor. Attention is focusing on who will be tasked with supporting Mbappe and the strikers while moving between left and center in the match against Newcastle.
Asked if Lee Kang-in and Vitiña are in competition, Enrique said, “Good players can play together. Two of them can play as wingers and midfielders, one in the center and the other in the side. One can play on the ground and the other can be in the bench. Both can start in the bench. Everything is possible.” He meant that he would leave open all possibilities and decide whether to select Lee Kang-in or Vitiña.
