After eliminating Barcelona and Bayern, the Parisians are tackling a new big chunk. Manchester City are moving well with Kevin De Bruyne. Injured in the ankle on April 17 in the semi-final of the League Cup after a shock with N’Golo Kanté, the Belgian recovered at breakneck speed. Holder in the final last Sunday against Tottenham, the Red Devil was decisive.
On the side of PSG, Kylian Mbappé came out on Saturday during the trip to Metz for a muscle alert but the French international will also be present for this shock of the titans. Recovered from his injury, Marquinhos will start after missing the return quarter against Rekordmeister.
The Brazilian will be associated with Presnel Kipembe in central defense while the pair of scavengers will consist of Idrissa Gueye and Leandro Paredes. The tenure of Bakker and Florenzi on the sides are the surprises of the eleven Parisian.
