Paris Saint-Germain’s (PSG) Lee Kang-In is expected to return to the starting lineup.
PSG will travel to Reims, France, on Wednesday morning (Aug. 12) for the 12th round of the 2023-24 French Ligue 1 season. After coming off the bench in PSG’s 3-0 win over AC Milan in the UEFA Champions League Group F fourth leg on Aug. 8, Lee is expected to start against Reims after hitting the post in the 44th minute.
French media outlet Le Parisien predicted PSG’s starting lineup for Reims on Nov. 11 and tipped Lee to start.
The publication predicts that PSG will start Mbappe and Hammers up front against Reims, with Lee and Dembele leading the attack from the flanks. Emery and Lewis will form the midfield, while Hernandez, Shkriniar, Marquinhos, and Moukiele will form the defense. Donnarumma would be in goal.
Le Parisien said: ‘PSG will be without Moani and Hakimi for the Reims game due to disciplinary reasons. Lee Kang-in could be preferred to Vitinha,” and “In midfield, PSG could start Lewis in place of Ugarte, who struggled against AC Milan. ‘Lee will start his fourth consecutive game in Ligue 1 in a role that will see him move between the center and the flanks. On the right flank, Dembele and Bacca will battle it out for a starting spot.
PSG were criticized for their performance in the UEFA Champions League Group F fourth leg away defeat to AC Milan in the 2023-24 season. Jerome Rotan, a former PSG flanker, said: “Lee is a stronger player than Vitinha. It was an away game and PSG had to be solid. Against AC Milan, we had to keep the ball and not be shaky. Lee is a solid player,” he said, suggesting that Lee should have started against AC Milan instead of Vitinha.
“PSG’s midfield combination of Ugarte-Emericka-Vitinha has been quite good in Ligue 1 this season,” says PSG defender and commentator Domi. However, against AC Milan, they were stopped by the opposing midfield of Loftus-Cheek. “PSG’s midfield has shown its limitations in Champions League away games this season, and they can’t aim for a top finish in the Champions League if their midfielders can’t perform well against Loftus-Cheek. Against Newcastle and Milan, PSG’s midfielders have shown that they cannot change direction under pressure.” 보스토토 주소
“Lee is not afraid to get on the ball. He’s a very good player who’s not afraid to look back even if there’s someone behind him. He has the ability to resist pressure and change direction. He’s a player who changes direction a lot and he has the skills to do it. He can be useful in the midfield.”
