Ligue 1: PSG finds Mbappé against Montpellier, Sakho on the bench for his return to the Parc des Princes


PSG face Montpellier this Saturday (9 p.m.) on the second day of Ligue 1. The starting compositions of the two teams have fallen.

Kylian Mbappé, the return. Present in the group after having missed the first two official matches of PSG, the 23-year-old world champion starts to face Montpellier this Saturday (9 p.m., live commentary), on behalf of the second day of Ligue 1. He is accompanied by two players in form and who undoubtedly have things to prove after being forgotten in the list of 30 nominated for the Ballon d’Or, Lionel Messi and Neymar. For the rest, it’s classic for Christophe Galtier, with the same 10 other players who started against Nantes and Clermont, including Presnel Kimpembe, who celebrates his 27th birthday this Saturday. Note that the latest Parisian recruit, Renato Sanches, is on the match sheet for the very first time with Paris-SG.

On the side of the MHSC, it should be noted that the former Parisian Mamadou Sakho starts on the bench for his big return to the Parc des Princes. This is the first match since leaving the capital club in 2013. Suspended against Troyes (3-2), Jordan Ferri finds his place in midfield. Joris Chotard, Whabi Khazri and Elye Wahi will be responsible for worrying Gianluigi Donnarumma. Unless it’s the inevitable captain Teji Savanier who takes care of it, he who scored the winning goal against Estac last week… The winner, if there is one in this match, would take control of the Ligue 1 standings with six points, ahead of Lille and Monaco, who have four.
