This Wednesday in Bruges could happen what a good part of the football world has been waiting for since Lionel Messi arrived in Paris in August: the match on the Argentine’s court with the other two great stars of PSG, Neymar and Kylian Mbappé.
After a few weeks of acclimatization to his new club, a handful of minutes in his only match so far with PSG (in Reims replacing Neymar) and after the international break, in which he beat Pelé’s goal record with a South American team, everything indicates that the three stars of Paris SG will coincide for the first time on the field.
“Maybe”, coach Mauricio Pochettino just answered when asked if he will line up the three in the Champions League debut, which will be the occasion for the French team, which is still looking for its first European crown, to begin to confirm the expectations that place him as the big favorite for the European title this season.
“We are a club that has recruited many players this summer, but we are not yet a team. We have yet to become a team like Chelsea did last year, which should be the favorite for the title as the current champion. and because of the way they have been reinforced, “warned the Rosario coach.
This can also be a double-edged sword, since it will also be the enemy to be beaten by the rest of the contenders in the ‘Champions’ and a team like Bruges, a classic of European football but without the power of the giants of the continent, he will try to ‘justify’ his presence in the top club competition with a good result against the French.
