Zapping But! Football Club Bordeaux, PSG, OM, OL, ASSE: the top 10 best scorers in Ligue 1 in activity

The 6th day of L1 has already offered its share of emotions since the start of the weekend, from the derby won by RC Strasbourg against FC Metz on Friday (3-0) to the incidents between RC Lens and LOSC (1 -0) through the fall of ASSE at home against the Girondins de Bordeaux (1-2). The clash between PSG and OL at Parc des Princes (8:45 p.m.) should also be worth its weight in gold since Mauricio Pochettino could reserve two surprises in his starting XI.

The first could come from a 5 element defense. “From time to time, we were not solid against Brugge. It does not date from yesterday and it may happen again. We also know that there are possibilities to change the system. Defense at 5 is one of the levers available to a coach, ”revealed the Argentine technician yesterday at a press conference. According to L’Équipe, another surprise could be the temporary sidelining of overly neutral Georginio Wijnaldum, who could be replaced by Idrissa Gueye’s more runner profile in midfield.

Long uncertain due to a hematoma on a toe, Kylian Mbappé was better in recent hours and was able to participate in the last morning session. Also according to the sports daily, he will be in the group but Angel Di Maria, suspended in C1, will be available and could be aligned from the start. It would then be the last surprise reserved by the Argentinian coach of PSG.

to summarize

Mauricio Pochettino could reserve several surprises for the closing shock of the 6th day of Ligue 1 between PSG and OL at the Parc des Princes (8:45 p.m.). In particular with Kylian Mbappé, the defense and Georginio Wijnaldum.
