This would be very bad news for Paris Saint-Germain, especially considering the impact they have already had on the Parisian game after less than two months of competition. Manuel Ugarte suffered a strong blow against Nice (2-3) on Friday in a match in which he remained on the ground for several minutes, and he finds himself unsure about receiving Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday evening, on the occasion of the first day of the league. Group stage in the Champions League.
During his pre-match press conference at midday on Monday, Luis Enrique mentioned a problem with one of his players without mentioning his name: “We have doubts about the player and his physical condition, but other than that I know who will play tomorrow.”Spanish technician revealed. If Ugarte withdraws, Danilo Pereira seems best suited to replace him in the keeper role, even if the Portuguese does not have the same attacking capabilities as the Uruguayan.
Kolo Mwani is a favorite of Mbappé and Dembélé
In addition to Ugarte’s questioning, and in the absence of Marco Asensio, the victim of a one-foot strike in the lineup and absent for several weeks, only the name of the central striker seemed to be aroused in anticipation in recent hours. Not for Luis Enrique if we stick to his comments in the press conference, as he has already been previously chosen between Goncalo Ramos and Randall Colo Mwani.
The 24-year-old Frenchman is favored by his attacking partners, Kylian Mbappe and Ousmane Dembélé, but his profile differs from the Portuguese. The latter provides an anchor point for his teammates and is more of a shallow striker, who can be very useful as long as he is equipped with the balls, which was not the case on Friday against Gym.
The Parisian group will meet on Tuesday morning at the Paris Saint-Germain campus in Poissy. The crew spent the night there making final adjustments for this first European match of the season. Everyone will depart by bus from Yvelines in the early evening to arrive at Parc des Princes about an hour and a half before the scheduled 9pm kick-off.
