The broadcast will also be ensured in more than 170 territories with the possibility of following the match on Canal+ and beIN Sports in Africa in particular.

What will be the compositions of the meeting?

For the reigning French champions, there is no doubt that the former coach of OGC Nice, Christophe Galtier, will line up his typical team, unfortunately without Kylian Mbappé, suspended this evening. If the preparation matches did not really raise many doubts in the mind of the Parisian coach as the adversity did not reveal itself at the level of the Parisians, the composition of the PSG for the meeting tonight should allow to have an idea of ​​the game plan that Christophe Galtier would like to put in place.

Also note the absence of Hugo Ekitike, not retained to make the trip unlike the other major recruit of the Parisian off-season, the Parisian Nordi Mukiele who could if necessary replace Hakimi in the role of right piston in progress Also cited for a starting place this evening, Arnaud Kalimuendo could change Galtier’s system to a more classic 3-4-3 with Messi and Neymar on the sides in support of the player returning from his loan to RC Lens.

The probable composition of Paris Saint-Germain (3-4-1-2): Donnarumma – Ramos, Marquinhos, Kimpembe – Hakimi, Verratti, Vitinha, Mendes – Messi – Sarabia, Neymar

On the Canaries side, the vast majority of Antoine Kombouaré’s players are available for this meeting. If the coach was already used to using a five-man defense during matches against the big teams in the league, he should certainly keep this system for the evening match. Given the last friendly matches of FC Nantes, Guessand should numerically replace Kolo Muani at the forefront while Chirivella and Sissoko should occupy the midfield.

The probable composition of FC Nantes (5-2-3) : Lafont – Fabio, Castelletto, Girotto, Pallois, Merlin – Chirivella, Sissoko – Blas, Guessand, Simon

Players to follow

  • Sergio Ramos, finally back?

Often and widely criticized during his first season in the capital due to his numerous absences, Sergio Ramos finally seems to have regained sufficient form to play matches with Paris Saint-Germain. Rather on the legs during pre-season meetings despite the low level of defensive needs, the Spaniard could be an important factor in the season for the Parisians. If he gives the necessary guarantees to Christophe Galtier, the latter could make the three-man defense his preferred scheme and thus use a system which seems to best suit the Parisian squad which includes interesting side offensive players. Many eyes will therefore be on the 36-year-old central defender who will aim to reassure his family and share his experience at the very highest level throughout the season with his teammates.

Returning earlier from Brazil for the resumption with Paris Saint-Germain, seeming very fit and diligent during training at the start of the season and rather sharp during the Japanese tour of the Parisians, Neymar has regained a rating with the supporters but will have to confirm all this tonight.

  • Guessand, a start to forget

Orphaned from the departure of the player who scored last season at FC Nantes, Randal Kolo Muani, the Nantes attack will have to do without the one who joined Eintracht Frankfurt in the offseason. For this, the Canaries obtained the loan of the young 21-year-old striker, Evann Guessand, from OGC Nice. After a season replacing Andy Delort and Kasper Dolberg on the front line of the Aiglons attack, Evann Guessand should be number 1 in Nantes and begins his season this evening in Tel Aviv.
