towards a partially redesigned eleven against the Urawa Red Diamonds

For the friendly match against the Urawa Red Diamonds, Christophe Galtier should renew the 3-4-1-2 but several executives should be put to rest. Keylor Navas will be in goal, while Marco Verratti could return.

Saturday evening at 7 p.m. (12 p.m. French time), Paris Saint-Germain faces the Urawa Red Diamonds. On the eve of this meeting, the club from the capital once again trained at the Chichibunomiya Rugby Stadium. A session during which Christophe Galtier insisted on the tactical work of 3-4-1-2, already chosen for the match against Kawasaki Frontale (2-1). A device that will be used again on Saturday against Hiroki Sakai’s teammates. A good part of the day’s training was also spent working in front of the goal.

Towards a high turnover

For this new opposition against a club from the Archipelago, Christophe Galtier should blow part of his workforce. In the cages, Keylor Navas will take the place of Gianluigi Donnarumma. As for the defence, Sergio Ramos and Marquinhos could start the game on the bench. Unless there is a last minute glitch, this poster will mark the return of Marco Verratti.

The Italian player has been spared so far due to foot pain. He participated in the entirety of the last collective session. A chance that Leandro Paredes did not have, with separate exercises in the company of the physical trainer. The Argentinian will not take part in tomorrow’s match north of Tokyo, in Saitama, in front of around 60,000 spectators.
