Due to a sustained sequence of matches in the coming weeks, the Parisian club’s coach Christophe Galtier could very well rotate his squad, this Wednesday for the Ligue 1 matchday 5 match against TFC (9:00 p.m.).
After four games with practically the same starting eleven, the PSG coach, Christophe Galtier, forced by the runaway calendar, will have to resort to the rotation starting on Wednesday, August 31 in Toulouse (9:00 p.m.) for matchday 5 of L1, beginning of a series of six meetings in 19 days.
Please note the changes. With the start of the Champions League on September 6 and the tempting welcome from Juventus in Turin, Paris will have a crazy program ahead of them and the time has come for the Parisian coach to spare him by rotating his squad.

The formation of a group justified, in the eyes of the Parisian coach, having game stability at the start of the season, an approach that allowed his team to start the championship with excellent bases, with cards against Clermont (5-0), Montpellier. (5-2) and Lille (7-1).
The three-man defense has broken through, the recovery duo Marco Verratti-Vitinha they worked on their complementarity and above all the trio of magicians shone, neymar scoring 6 goals, Kylian Mbappe 4 and Leo Messi 3.

On the left, this role could go to Juan Bernat, replacing Nuno Mendes. But the main question concerns the “MNM”. Will Galtier dare to touch his all-star trio? Messi-Neymar-Mbappé ?
