Aouchiche surprised midfielder
Great hope of the club capital, Adil Aouchiche (17 years) is the other new boy to appear in the starting lineup of Thomas Tuchel. He made a strong impression in the last U17 Euro by finishing top scorer of the competition with nine achievements on the clock. "It's a boy who works well every day, who is able to bring the whole team with him, I hope he will continue like this for his future because he is a boy who can go very well up ", explained a few months ago Thiago Motta, who was his coach at U19 PSG. Number ten in his debut, Aouchiche can also evolve on one side or in midfield. In Metz, he will support Idrissa Gueye and Marco Verratti.
Faced with Kylian Mbappé and Edinson Cavani's injury-related absences, Tuchel has also decided to rely on Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, who scored twice in last week's big win over Toulouse (4-0). . The Cameroonian international will be surrounded by Angel Di Maria and Pablo Sarabia.
