Thierry Henry has summoned all the players available from the professional group as well as Benoît Badiashile, Han-Noah Massengo, Jonathan Panzo, Romain Faivre, Wilson Isidor and Khephren Thuram.
Paris Saint-Germain is coming off a 2-1 win last week against Lille. Thomas Tuchel had used the following eleven:
Buffon – Kehrer, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos – Meunier, Verratti, Draxler, Bernat – Di Maria, Mbappe, Neymar.
Thierry Henry : “The pressure is always there whether we are up or down. We know very well what is happening on Sunday. This will not be obvious as for a lot of teams in France and Europe. We will try to bother them.”
“In front of PSG, nobody expects a team to take points. Even less in our situation. But we all saw cup matches where the big team had to crush the other one. And sometimes, it does not go as planned.”
Thomas Tuchel : “Monaco is a great club, they have very interesting individual qualities so we have to prepare for this game seriously. I hope it’s our best match.”
“Between Buffon and Areola the choice is not yet made, we must study this with the staff.”
