PSG's Team Against Manchester United In The Champions League Leaked
Paris Saint-Germain manager Thomas Tuchel has suffered another blow after his side's teamsheet and formation has reportedly been leaked.
According to Yahoo! Sports France, the reigning Ligue 1 champions will line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation against Manchester United in the first leg of their Champions League match.
Gianluigi Buffon will start between the sticks, with Thilo Kehrer replacing the injured Thomas Meunier at right-back.
Juan Bernat is at left-back and Thiago Silva is partnered with Presnel Kimpembe in the back four.
Marquinhos has been moved to CDM to partner alongside Marco Verratti, who was initially a doubt for the match.
Julian Draxler will play in a more central attacking role, with injuries to Edinson Cavani and Neymar leaving the PSG boss to reshuffle his frontline.
