It will be necessary to keep long the game sheet of this FC Metz – PSG, largely dominated by the club of the capital (2-0). After the truce, when Paris will return in Ligue 1 on September 14 at 17:30 against Strasbourg, there is little chance to find a starting eleven Baroque in a club of this size.
He started with a 19-year-old Polish goalkeeper who had never known professionalism (Bulka). Such an adventure also concerns Adil Aouchiche, barely 17 years old, not yet pro and aligned in support of Choupo-Moting, a new scorer. Of the four stars of this team (Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Verratti and Di Maria), Leonardo has recruited them all, except the Argentinian scorer and passer in Saint-Symphorien.
This is the mix of vintage and innovation that has led to the development of this training that we will probably never see again. Anyway, with Thomas Tuchel, it is not possible: in four days of L 1, he has never aligned the same team.
A world of unknowns and absolute excitement
Above all, after international matches, PSG will switch to a new world, played by a goalkeeper with a magical resume – Navas and his three league champions – and by the post-Neymar. Knowing that, in the post Neymar, it may be that there is still Neymar in but a Neymar who wanted to leave and who has not found a club to welcome him, financially speaking.
PSG – Strasbourg will mark the debut of the goalkeeper of Costa Rica and perhaps the return of the Brazilian prodigy even if it is never a good idea to start against Strasbourg. The last time, he took for three months with a foot still torn and cold sweats for Paris approaching Manchester United and the Champions League.
The European Cup is never far from the Parisian scene and, four days later, Paris will receive Real Madrid in a first moment of truth of the season. And if Neymar returned the Park in the coming months? We dream. We dream because it is still there but, next Tuesday, it will perhaps not be there even if now we do not see how Barcelona could offer it, on what economic basis or from which (s) exchange (s) since, apart Messi and perhaps Griezmann, they all consulted in a huge barter that leaves a perplexing and bitter taste on the manners of football.
Without Neymar, suspended for the first leg matches of this phase of Champions League hens, but with perhaps one more surprise, as a new striker since Paris will host Zidane also without Mbappé nor Cavani. The post-Metz is a world of unknowns and absolute excitement. Total agreement of all parties on this subject.
