Luck can only take you so far and PSG are finally learning that this season. Unfortunately for them, the club is learning this lesson the hard way with the club languishing in third spot in the Group H of the Champions League.
Having somehow managed to have stumbled their way into the showpiece summit clash last season, PSG have shown their true quality come this season. For all their dominance in Ligue 1 and spoils of riches, the club has failed to see that translate into anything of note in the Champions League with the side finding itself with the solitary win from three matches.
The first round of matches couldn’t have unfolded in worse fashion for the side, leaving the club in dire need of a win when it takes on RB Leipzig today. Another defeat to the Germans could end up spelling doom for PSG and see them be shunted out of the tournament this term.

With PSG conceding goals left right and centre this season, Keylor Navas has found himself extremely busy. Despite that, he’s managed to remain relatively unsullied unlike his backline with him recording a string of saves.
Marquinhos looks set to be handed an escalated role by PSG today, one which will allow himself to make his presence felt in the side’s attacking plays as well. RB Leipzig on the other hand see us make wingback Angelino the first pick from the side with his two goals and an assist seeing him top score for the side in the tournament.
Ibrahima Konate will be giving him company for the upcoming showdown.
With a goal and assist apiece, Christopher Nkunku has been at the forefront of RB Leipzig’s attacking charge this season. Where he’s spearheaded the attack, Amadou Haidara has been the focal point of the side’s defensive performances seeing him spurn the opposition’s attacking plays with ease.
Scorer of the one goal, Angel will constitute the duo from PSG. It’s a one-two of picks completed by the selection of Marco Verratti who joins our side due to his ability to keep the ball moving quickly in the middle of the park.
While Kylian Mbappe has crafted the two goals for his side with two assists, PSG need him to break his scoring rut come today. Now fully fit, the striker will be a man on a mission today to see him be the first pick from the side for us.
Neymar joins up as ever with him while the opposition will find representation in Emil Forsberg courtesy of his one goal.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Mbappe two assists were enough to see him captain our team while Neymar is the vice-captain.
