Special envoy to San Sebastian

With or without Kylian Mbappé? Normally, and if the captain of the Blues is not injured, the question does not really arise. Except that times are anything but normal in Paris, since the announcement of the departure of the person concerned at the end of the season… Mbappé is nevertheless in the Parisian 11 to face Real Sociedad this Tuesday (9 p.m., live commentary). Behind, Marquinhos and Danilo Pereira are not starters, they who tested themselves in training on Monday after missing Monaco (0-0). In the absence of “Marqui”, it is… Mbappé the captain this Tuesday evening. Three left-handers in defense, including Nuno Mendes, his first start since April 2023. The two Lucas, Beraldo and Hernandez, start in the hinge. For the rest, Fabian Ruiz takes third place in midfield, with Vitinha and Warren Zaire-Emery. No surprises regarding Ousmane Dembélé and Bradley Barcola – who represents the nice surprise of the season for the French champions – on the wings and Achraf Hakimi, right back.

On the Real Sociedad side, we will highlight the return of captain Mikel Oyarzabal, absent in the first leg, and the presence of former Brest player Robin Le Normand and the former captain of Stade Rennes, Hamari Traoré. Note that Hernandez, Hakimi and Ugarte are subject to suspension in the event of a yellow on the Paris Saint-Germain side. Remember that PSG dominated Real Sociedad 2-0 in the first leg, at the Parc des Princes, three weeks ago.

PSG 11: Donnarumma – Hakimi, Hernandez, Beraldo, Mendes – Vitinha, Zaire-Emery, Ruiz – Dembele, Mbappe (captain), Barcola.
