For the third time in five days, Lionel Messi is in our standard team. The Argentinian, author of two assists in Toulouse (3-0), has once again shown that PSG can count on him this season. At 35, the former Barcelonan is having fun with his friends from the Parisian attack Kylian Mbappé and Neymar.
The Top 5 in force
Two Parisians (Messi and Verratti), two Marseillais (Clauss, Mbemba), three Lyonnais (Riou, Tagliafico, Toko Ekambi), two Lensois (Abdul Samed, Sotoca) and a Montpellier resident (Sakho): our 4-4-2 does not presents almost only players who evolve in formations of the Top 5 of Ligue 1. The three representatives of OL, winner of AJA (2-1), make their first appearance of the season, idem for Sotoca, double decisive scorer ahead of Lorient (5-2), and Sakho, solid against Ajaccio (2-0). Clauss, Mbemba, Verratti and Abdul Samed sign their second entry.
The Trojan exception
There is, however, an intruder: the Trojan right midfielder Wilson Odobert. His sequence of passing of legs – shot in the small net during the victory of Estac in Monaco (4-2) allows him to find a place in our eleven. Credited with a 7, he delighted his coach, Bruno Irles, rewarded with an 8 and a first selection on our bench with his team’s second consecutive success this season in the Championship.
