As one might expect, Marquinhos is well present in the Parisian group which will face Manchester City in the semi-final first leg of the Champions League on Wednesday evening (9 p.m., live on RMC Sport 1). No player is missing.

Pep Guardiola himself could not imagine the meeting without him, so it would have been a shame if Marquinhos was absent, as the Manchester City boss wanted to face him. That’s good, the Brazilian defender will be present at the Parc des Princes on Wednesday, on the bench or on the lawn at kick-off. But there is every reason to think that the captain will start alongside Presnel Kimpembe, especially since Marquinhos, who had a groin injury in Munich, still had a quality training session the day before.

Strong choices to make

Something to delight Mauricio Pochettino, who will be able to count on all of his strengths during this semi-final first leg of the Champions League (kick-off at 9 p.m., live on RMC Sport 1), against Skyblues. It remains to be seen what will be the intentions of the Argentine coach for the composition. Some uncertainties remain, as at the right side position, where Colin Dagba is in balance with Italy Alessandro Florenzi. The Italian has started the last two Ligue 1 matches played by Paris Saint-Germain, but the Parisian Titi has revealed himself in the Champions League.

Diallo’s return to form in the left lane could also reshuffle the cards, and send Mitchell Bakker to the bench. In the middle arises the question of the ideal complement of the Senegalese Idrissa Gueye, who should be the Argentinian Leandro Paredes. The two men had formed a double pivot behind Neymar in the second leg against Bayern Munich, in the quarter-finals. A match where Danilo Pereira had particularly distinguished himself, but as a central defender, and not as a midfielder.
