PSG challenges Angers this Wednesday (6:45 p.m.) in the quarter-final of the Coupe de France. With Mauro Icardi at the forefront rather than Kylian Mbappé.
Paris wants to continue dreaming of a historic treble. Second in Ligue 1, future opponents of Manchester City in the semi-finals of the Champions League, the capital club faces Angers (6:45 p.m.) in the quarter-finals of the Coupe de France this Wednesday.
An opponent that the Parisians have already dominated twice this season in the league. There was first a huge hit at the Parc des Princes (6-1), at the beginning of October, then a small victory in the return match at Raymond-Kopa (1-0), in January.
Mbappé on the bench
Mauricio Pochettino will this time be deprived of several executives including Keylor Navas, Marquinhos and Marco Verratti. Abdou Diallo and Rafinha are also missing. Kylian Mbappé, he will have the right to breathe a little. Still decisive last Sunday with a double against Saint-Etienne (3-2) in Ligue 1, the world champion will take his place on the bench for the reception of the SCO.
The tip of the attack will be occupied by Mauro Icardi, with Julian Draxler, Neymar (captain) and Angel Di Maria behind him. In defense, the central hinge will be made up of Thilo Kehrer and Danilo Pereira.
Opposite, Stéphane Moulin trusts Stéphane Bahoken in front. Ludovic Butelle is preferred to Paul Bernardoni in goal.
The composition of PSG: Rico – Dagba, Danilo, Kehrer, Bakker – Gueye, Paredes – Di Maria, Neymar, Draxler – Icardi
