“MSN is back”, “4-0 masterpiece incoming” – PSG fans thrilled as Christophe Galtier names ‘good XI’ including Lionel Messi after Mbappe misses out due to injury


Lionel Messi will lead the line for Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) as manager Christophe Gatlier has named an impressive starting XI to face Clermont Foot in their first league game.

The fans are excited about the lineup and have taken to Twitter to share their opinions about it.

New manager Gatlier has decided to go with a 3-4-3 formation, with Neymar and Pablo Sarabia alongside Lionel Messi in the attack. The Argentine forward will likely play in a false nine role, as the team’s main striker Kylian Mbappe is out injured.

Behind them in midfield, Marco Verratti and Vitinha will hold the play in midfield, while Nuno Mendes and Achraf Hakimi will handle the left and right flanks respectively. In defense, Presnel Kimpembe, Marquinhos, and Sergio Ramos will hold down the fort in front of goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.

The strong starting lineup had the Paris fans excited about the game, and they took to Twitter to express their delight at the manager’s choices. Here is a selection of the tweets from the Parc des Princes faithful:
