- PSG leads Group F after the first half of the Champions League’s first phase
- Luis Enrique’s team has scored 15 goals in their five last matches
- AC Milan has never defeated the French champions at San Siro
On Tuesday, Paris Saint-Germain will swap fashion capitals as they visit San Siro at AC Milan in the Champions League.
Luis Enrique has defended the use of his top-heavy system, 4-2-4 after Newcastle United’s 4-1 thrashing on its debut. The French champions, however, have stuck to the system and won five straight victories, scoring 15 goals.
Enrique is determined to master a certain formation. Here are the 11 players he may use.

GK Gianluigi Donnarumma While he no longer needs his mother to show him his ID, as was the case during his short time in youth football, Donnarumma still looks much older than his 24 years.
Achraf HakimiOnly Kylian Mbappe , his close friend contributed directly to more PSG’s goals than Hakimi this season.
Marquinhos: The ever-present Brazilian won his 300th game in his 419th outing in a PSG t-shirt on Friday.
CB : Milan SkriniarAn encounter with Milan is always important to a former Inter center-back. Skriniar lost only four derbies in his 16 career.
Lucas Hernandez, LB – Hernandez is set to face his brother Theo on Tuesday if Theo returns fit for Milan. Lucas Hernandez won their only previous competitive match a week ago.
Warren Zaire Emery – The prodigious teenager, who isn’t even 18, leads the Champions League in assists with three this season.
Manuel Ugarte, CM – Enrique’s porous system of 4-2-4 demands that Ugarte be very defensively strong. This is especially true when Zaire-Emery is rushing forward every time he gets the chance.
RW Ousmane Dembele This explains quite a bit.
ST. Goncalo Ramos Ramos is in the middle of a fight with Randal Kolos Muani to start on Tuesday.
ST : Kylian Mbappe Mbappe has been scoring one goal every game despite not having played in the first PSG team during contract negotiations. It’s not bad for someone who is shaking off the dust.
Lee Kangin: Enrique praised Lee as “a complete player”, even if it was a bit diminutive, after his stellar performance against Montpellier last Friday. Lee will keep his place in the starting lineup.
