This evening, the PSG moves on the lawn of Lorient with the ambition to end its calendar year by confirming a little more its broad domination on the Ligue 1. Thirteen points in advance on the OM, the ride is serene for the Parisians who will therefore try to conclude on a good note, being expected in particular in the game.

Problem, Mauricio Pochettino will have to do without, in addition to the many injured including Neymar, his two best strengths of the moment: Kylian Mbappé and Marco Verratti, suspended. Mauro Icardi is called to start alongside Di Maria and Messi in an Argentinian trio whose complementarity remains to be proven. The Team of the day indeed notes the deficits of Parisian animation without Verratti and Mbappé in terms of creativity and depth.

Ramos, Kimpembe and Marquinhos finally associated?

To bring more offensive variety and also offer more balls in the box to an Icardi who needs ammunition close to the goal, Mauricio Pochettino could therefore opt for a 3-4-3 device which would offer more freedom to Nuno Mendes and Achraf Hakimi to animate the sides and diversify the danger.

But it would also allow Pochettino to test a great first called by many observers and supporters, namely a three-way defense with Kimpembe, Sergio Ramos and Marquinhos. The three defenders seem fit, including the Spaniard, and their association on the ground would undoubtedly be one of the curiosities of the last night of Ligue 1 in 2021.

to summarize

Kylian Mbappé is absent for PSG’s last game in 2021 in Lorient, which could foster a much-awaited tactical change. According to the team, the capital club could evolve in 3-4-3 with Kimpembe, Sergio Ramos and Marquinhos holders.
