After a month and a half of unprecedented break, due to the Football World Cup, Ligue 1 resumes its rights this Wednesday, with in particular PSG which receives Strasbourg. Comfortably installed at the head of the French championship, the Parisian club has already found practically all of its globalists.
Return of Ligue 1. For this resumption of the French championship, interrupted since mid-November due to the World Cup-2022, Christophe Galtier has almost all his internationals. PSG are 5 points ahead of Lens after the first 15 days.
Only Messi missing
The Parisian coach can count on the early eliminations, like the Spaniards Sarabia and Soler or the Brazilians Marquinhos and Neymar. He can also count on Hakimi, whose journey with Morocco was one of the great stories of the World Cup, and on Mbappé, who wants to play quickly to evacuate the disappointment of the lost final as quickly as possible. In fact, only new world champion Lionel Messi is missing. He will return from Argentina just after the New Year.
Attention, the break was long in Ligue 1. We must remobilise. Christophe Galtier warned his troops: “We are starting from zero. We had a very good start to the season because the players were serious, demanding. There was a lot of humility in the game and a great desire to succeed together.” The new coach of the capital club continues: “We will have to find all that at kick-off. We have talked about it a lot with the players in the last 48 hours. Because we cannot take away the fact that ‘there was a 6-week cut off.
For the resumption, the PSG thus receives this Wednesday evening Strasbourg then will go Sunday at its Lensois dolphin. The Champions League will not resume until February with an appetizing round of 16 first leg against Bayern Munich.
