Rennes - PSG: why Mbappé and Enrique are already playing big

Humiliated à Newcastle, last Tuesday, PSG presents itself against Stade Rennais this Sunday, with heavy pressure on their shoulders. Luis Enrique's choices are already there. called into question, as was the involvement of star Kylian Mbappé.

A duel between two European losers. À St James' Park against the Newcastle Magpies, PSG experienced the most severe defeat under the QSI era in the group stage (4-1). Villarreal, the ambitious Stade Rennais bit the dust (1-0), and Martin Terrier, for his return to Madrid the competition, missed the penalty for the equalizer. These are two teams plagued by doubt who are expected on the lawn of Roazhon Park. 

Obviously, with its status, Paris will be scrutinized. up close after a mixed start to the season, even a missed one. with only twelve points in seven matches in Ligue 1. After its revolution of the summer, and the departures of Messi and Neymar, the Rouge et Bleu have given full powers to Luis Enrique. With his new animation composed of four attacking players for simply two midfielders, the Spaniard was truly resolute à the continuation of the English rout. Faced with to the press, the ex-coach of La Roja spoke about on his tactical choices. "You know how many years I've been coaching at the highest level? Several. Sometimes the coach makes mistakes, sometimes it's the players. I have to look for the best way to play. Football is a game of mistakes, for everyone. We all make mistakes. I trust what I see. I am convinced that we will succeed."

He, too, is used to succeeding. Nevertheless  the continuation of his real false start for Real Madrid, and his decision to stay at PSG despite the end of his contract next June, Kylian Mbappé is borrowed at the start of the season. The probable result of a truncated preparation. The captain of the French team remains in three matches without a goal, and his last achievement dates back to the 19th. last September, facing Dortmund, on penalty.

Beyond statistics, the 2022 World champion has little influence in PSG's game even if he is moving further and further down into the midfield to become an organizer. I remember that two or three weeks ago, in this same room, I was asked here if we were 'Kylian dependent' because he had just scored seven or eight goals, protested Luis Enrique. Now you ask me what Kylian should do because he didn't score. on his last matches… We have to be a little more normal. He is at; 100%. Players go through different states throughout a season. He's not Superman when he scores eight goals and he's not a normal player when he doesn't score. Not everything is black or white, there are nuances all the time. Kylian is a vital and determining player for us. He is a decisive player. My goal as a coach is to highlight his strengths and not see his flaws." The two men are therefore expected to face Stade Rennais.
