Pre-Season Friendlies: Paris SG Vs Kawasaki Match Preview, Line Up, Match Info

Paris Saint-Germain vs. Kawasaki Frontale - prediction, team news, lineups

Paris Saint-germain's Pre-season Tour Of Japan Begins With A Match Against Reigning J1 League Champions Kawasaki Frontale At The Japan National Stadium On Wednesday Night.

Les Parisiens Have Already Dealt With Quevilly-rouen In A Friendly Training Session This Summer And Now Face Three Games Against Their Local Rivals In A Week.

Pochettino Left After Leading Psg Back To The Top Of French Football But His Side Failed To Reach The Coupe De France And There Is No Need To Recall Their Disastrous Champions League Exit At The Hands Of Real Madrid In The Last 16. Christophe Galtier - Who Led Psg To The 2020-21 Ligue 1 Title With Lille - Arrived To Spark A New Era At The Parc Des Princes After Leaving Nice, Transforming Les Aiglons From Mid-table Languor To Champions League Challengers, Albeit On His In The End, The Side Had To Settle For Fifth Place.

Instead Of Spending Big On Ready-made Superstars, Psg Boss Galtier And New Football Adviser Luis Campos Have So Far Focused On Emerging Players In The Transfer Business, Bringing In Vitinha And Hugo Ekitike, But Several Permanent Names In Milan For Skriniar. And Renato Sanches Could Soon Follow.

As Mentioned, Psg Already Beat Quevilly-rouen 2-0 This Summer Thanks To A Sergio Ramos Penalty And A Second-half Effort From Djeidi Gassama, And Their Ligue 1 Title Defense Will Begin With A Trip To Clermont On August 6. Meanwhile, Kawasaki Frontale Were Once Again A Dominant Force In Japan's Top Division Last Season And Will Relish The Opportunity To Test Their Mettle Against The National Champions Even When The Gulf Class Enters.

The Blue And Blacks Ended The 2021 Season With An Incredible 92 Points To Win Their Second J1 League Title In A Row And Fourth Since 2017 - Finishing 13 Points Clear Of Second-placed Yokohama F. Marinos - But They Are Already Catching Up To That Deadline. Toru Oniki Has Overseen All Of Kawasaki Frontale's J1 League Triumphs Since 2017, But His Side Are Third In The Table In 2022 Behind Kashima Antlers And Leaders Yokohama F. Marinos, Who Are Eight Points Off The Winners With Two Games In Hand.

The Blues And Blacks Ended A Three-game Winless Run In All Competitions With A 4-0 Thrashing Of Gambo Osaka On July 9 Last Year, And After Having 11 Days To Recover From That Toil, Oniki's Men Should Be In Top Form. For An Unforgettable Battle With Psg.

The Futures Of Several Psg Players Look Brighter After Galtier Named His 25-man Squad For The Trip To Japan, With Georginio Wijnaldum Leading The List Of Notable Absentees.

Julian Draxler, Ander Herrera And Layvin Kurzawa Also Stayed At Home, But Sergio Rico, Mauro Icardi, Idrissa Gueye And Eric Junior Dina Ebimbe Are All In The Squad. Presnel Kimpembe Also Made The Trip Despite Speculation Surrounding A Possible Move To Chelsea.

While Galtier Will Obviously Make Big Changes During The Competition, The Japanese National Stadium Crowd Can Potentially Look Forward To Seeing Lionel Messi, Neymar And Kylian Mbappe From The Start.

Galtier Confirmed That A Back Three Is An Option For His Side, Which Would See Kimpembe, Ramos And Marquinhos Start In A Formidable Defence.

For Kawasaki Frontale, Playmaker Yasuto Wakizaka - Who Leads The Team In Assists This Term With Five - Looked Questionable For Wednesday's Game After Coming On Against Gamba Osaka With An Unspecified Injury.

Brazilian Centre-back Jesiel Is Also On The Long Road To Recovery From A Cruciate Ligament Injury And Ryota Oshima, Who Recently Returned From Ankle Ligament Damage In March, Was Also Absent In His Last Outing. Former Brazil International Leandro Damiao Is Expected To Lead The Way For The Japanese Champions, With Their Frontman Supported By Five-goal Wingers Marcinho And Akihiro Ienaga, Who Are Still Going Strong At 36.

Paris Saint-Germain possible starting lineup:

Donnarumma; Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Ramos; Hakimi, Paredes, Vitinha, Mendes; Messi, Mbappe, Neymar

Kawasaki Frontale possible starting lineup:

Jung; Yamane, Taniguchi, Kurumaya, Sasaki; Songkrasin, Tachibanada, Tsukagawa; Ienaga, Damiao, Marcinho
