Lyon-Paris Saint-Germain: Vetnia on the bench, first for Ruiz

to detonate one of its new key elements. And gives a little physical density to the middle. So Christophe Galtier decided to kill two birds with one stone on Sunday, September 18 (8:45 pm) in Lyon. Having been chosen to establish Vetnia at the start of the nine games the latter was able to play since the start of the season (he was suspended against Monaco), the PSG coach, this time, made the choice to leave the Portuguese midfielder on the bench.

To join Verratti’s core midfield squad, Galtier decided to create Fabian Ruiz for the first time since his arrival at PSG. The Spanish midfielder arrived from Naples late, for the time being, he was only able to get a taste of the French league during the last 28 minutes of the match against Brest, which he won (1-0) on September 10. After sixteen minutes played on Wednesday night in the Champions League during the collected success on the Maccabi Haifa turf (0-3), Ruiz will start his first match in his new colours.

This is the only surprise in the starting lineup that Christophe Galtier put on paper to challenge Olympique Lyon, who remained on the losing streak. In front of Gianluigi Donnarumma, the defense will be, like Wednesday in Israel, composed of the trio Ramos – Marquinhos – Danilo, the last substitute Presnel Kimpembe, injured.

As Nuno Mendes is aligned again in the left piston role, Achraf Hakimi finds, as expected, the right lane, in place of Nordi Mukele. In the middle, the Verratti-Ruiz duo will see their impressive display, particularly in their ability to feed the unbeatable Messi, Neymar and Mbappe, all of whom scored a goal four days ago in Haifa.
