Entering its 42nd consecutive year in the country’s top league, PSG have dominated the French League for the past few years. They arguably have the best squad in the league and are the strongest contenders in Europe from the country. Laurent Blanc, the manger would have been happy with the domestic title in the previous season but the Champions League is something he has not been able to lift with the club. This season after a bit of re-enforcements, the club will look to challenge for silverware on all fronts.
The month of August is upon us and the fans are eagerly waiting for their club to start their season. So in this article, we will take a look at the strongest team that Paris Saint Germain can field on their first game of the season –
Salvatore Sirigu has been solid in front of goal for PSG for a few years now. He has a lot of support from his defenders. The Brazilian pair of Thiago Silva and David Luiz is one of the most feared duo and the club will want their centre backs to be at their best when the new season starts. Serge Aurier is also a good player and will back up both the players for the season.
Lucas Digne and Maxwell will get to play most of the season as wing backs for the club. Marquinhos may have to wait for his place in the squad but average performances from either of the wing backs will give him his chance to prove himself. The club has a solid back line and is one of the most disciplined sides in Europe last season.
The Italian power house, Marco Verratti was in fine form last season. He not only provided cover for the defense but also added to the attacking moves of the club. He is a versatile player and is a very important part of the clubs plans. Blaise Matuidi will play his part alongside Verratti and provides a lot of innovation into the game. This pair will be backed up by Motta and Rabiot.
The PSG mid-field at times last season was torn apart by some of the best in Europe. They are planning to bring in Angel Di Maria from United which will be great move as his style of play will suit the club. Laurent Blanc will have to be careful in choosing his squad so as to make sure he has the best XI playing every match of the new season.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has been the main man in attack for PSG over the last few years will continue to take his place in the squad. Lucas Moura and Edinson Cavani will play on either side of the big Swede. their pairing ripped apart some of the best teams in the domestic league. The manager will be hoping that they repeat the same in the next season.
Javier Pastore, has also made a huge difference to the attack of the club. His skill and technique along with his vision give PSG that extra bit of sharpness they may need to beat the best in Europe.
Though they won the league last season, the manager of the club would have been disappointed with the performance in the rest of the cups. He will have to be on his heels in the next season if he wants to better his record with the club.
