Messi trained in an axial role


On the eve of FC Bruges-PSG in the Champions League (Wednesday, 9 p.m. on RMC Sport 1), Mauricio Pochettino mixed up his players during the opposition on Tuesday. And in particular aligned Messi in an axial role.

While PSG will begin its Champions League season on Wednesday evening at FC Bruges (9 p.m., RMC Sport 1), two major questions arise concerning this poster. The first: will Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappé finally play together? « Maybe, yes. Maybe, yes. Quizas, yes, » replied Mauricio Pochettino mischievously on Tuesday at a press conference, and in three languages.

The second: if the attacking trio is indeed aligned, in what pattern will it be? The Parisian coach obviously did not say more, but during the opposition on the eve of the match, this Tuesday evening, Pochettino mixed the teams (potential holders and substitutes), and aligned Messi … in a axial role.

No apparent pain for Kimpembe

Should we take lessons from this for the meeting on Wednesday? Will Messi play at the forefront of the Parisian attack? Or in a role of axial playmaker, behind a Neymar-Mbappé duo? Only the Argentine technician, a priori, knows this Tuesday.

Otherwise, it will be noted that Presnel Kimpembe – embarrassed to an ankle a few days ago – made all the opposition without apparent pain.
