The statement of the coach
Pochettino on the importance of getting the year off to a good start at the Parc des Princes
« It’s important to get off to a good start at the Parc des Princes. Training takes place in a good atmosphere, with lots of player involvement. It is very important to come away with the victory. The team is a system open to improvement. The team must improve in all aspects of the game. The group is doing well, I’m happy because everyone has worked very hard. We want to regain victory and I am confident for the reception of Brest ».
The probable compositions of PSG – Brest:
For this match against Brest, Mauricio Pochettino will be deprived of many players. If Lionel Messi is uncertain because of a Covid return, PSG will have to do without Neymar (infirmary), Di Maria, Danilo, Donnarumma, Kurzawa, Draxler (Covid), or Hakimi and Gueye (CAN). Suffice to say that Paris will not yet be able to field its typical team, even if a player like Kylian Mbappé will still be there.
The probable line-up of PSG: Donnarumma – Dagba, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Mendes – Herrera, Paredes, Verratti – Wijnaldum, Icardi, Mbappé.
For this gala match in Paris, Michel Der Zakarian will also be deprived of several elements, such as Belkebla, gone to the CAN, or Del Castillo, injured in the groin. Following its heavy defeat against Nice last week (0-3), the SB 29 will be keen to react against the leader of the French championship. All this with a more or less complete team.
The probable composition of Brest: Bizot – Pierre Gabriel, Chardonnet, Herelle, Duverne – Faivre, Agoumé, Lasne, Honorat – Le Douaron, Mounié[display-posts orderby="rand"]
Michel Der Zakarian (Brest coach)
« Paris Saint-Germain is above everyone. They have great players, they are criticized at times for not always doing the right thing, but they have talented players and they can beat anyone easily. They crush everyone. If they give us the opportunity to score and they don’t defend well, it’s up to us to use the ball well. Last week, Lyon defended well and countered well. They could have led 2-0, but they were caught… Same for Lorient before the break. If we have the opportunities against Paris, we have to make it happen, otherwise they catch up behind »
