Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) will play against Toulouse FC in the second round of the 2023/24 season at Stadium Toulouse in Toulouse, France, at 4 a.m. on the 20th. 토토사이트 PSG, who previously had a 0-0 draw without scoring in the opening match against Lorient, is determined to win by returning Kylian Mbappe, who had a cold relationship, to a surprise return.
Ahead of the match against Toulouse, Lee Kang-in’s name could not be seen amid expected starting lists from various media. With Mbappe’s return and the recruitment of position rival Usman Dembele, the prospect of being relegated to the center or candidate seems to be becoming a reality.
Lee Kang-in started in the league’s opening game against Lorien on the 13th and failed to score an offensive point and was replaced in the 35th minute of the second half and stepped down. However, when he was selected as the official MOM Best Player of the Game, he was evaluated as having an impressive debut.
However, PSG increased its competitiveness by recruiting Dembele, who can play the right wing position where Lee Kang-in started. Dembele is an all-around multi-resource that can be used on both sides, both right and left feet.
Neymar left and inherited the vacant uniform number 10. Number 10 is a number that symbolizes the team’s best ace, and you can see how much PSG is expecting Dembele.
On top of that, Mbappe, who was expected to be demoted to the second division due to conflicts with PSG all summer, has returned to the first division. Mbappe is known to prefer to play on the left side, not the front-line striker. PSG have signed Gonzalo Hamus on loan as a front-line player. Mbappe on the left, Hamus in the center, and Dembele on the right are more likely to stand.
As a result, Lee Kang-in was expected to be relegated to the bench or central resources. France’s PSG Talk said, Lee Kang-in has played as a central midfielder while playing for Mallorca. PSG can take advantage of this to play a creative midfielder role for Lee Kang-in. Lee Kang-in’s versatility on the field is suitable for his creative midfielder role. PSG is filling the position with Lee Kang-in even without recruiting midfield resources, he said, claiming the possibility of Lee Kang-in’s appointment as a central midfielder.
However, in the match against Toulouse, Lee Kang-in did not have a name not only for the offense but also for the central midfielder. The British Sports Mall expected Mbappe, Gonzalez Hamus and Marco Asensio to be the expected starting lineup against Toulouse. In the midfield, Manuel Ugarte, Vitina and Warren Zaire Emery were expected to start. There was no room for Lee Kang-in.
Sports Mall said, It is no secret that PSG recently experienced drama outside the stadium. Uncertainties outside the stadium surrounding Mbappe and Neymar clearly affected the performance of the last opening game, he said. PSG had a scoreless draw with Lorient at home as Mbappe watched from the stands and Neymar completed his transfer to Alhilal Saudi Arabia.
PSG had a 78% ball share and attempted 20 shots, but there was no score. Luca Hernandez, Milan Skriniar, Ugarte, Lee Kang-in, Hamus and Asensio, who were recruited this summer, all made their debuts in the match, but the results were poor. Coach Luis Enrique said he would be tempted to change the roster against Toulouse, predicting a change in the starting lineup after the opening draw.
Statjohn also expected Demdele, Hamus and Mbappe to attack, and pointed to Zaire Emery, Ugarte and Vitinha as midfield combinations. There was no place for Lee Kang-in to play. Dembele is expected to make his PSG debut in this match, Statjohn said. Mbappe is also likely to make a surprise return through the match against Toulouse. PSG, which lacked aggression in the last game, is expected to change a lot, he said, predicting that Lee Kang-in and Asensio, who played in the match against Lorien, will be excluded.
Meanwhile, Lee Kang-in missed team training ahead of the match against Toulouse. He trained separately with Zaire Emery, who played in all but one preseason game. France’s RMC Sports said, Nordi Mukiele has returned to training, while Zaire Emery and Lee Kang-in have fallen into training. It’s not an injury. We trained separately to prevent fatigue, he explained.
Lee Kang-in injured his back thigh muscle during a pre-season friendly match and failed to build up his body properly. He only played 20 minutes as a substitute in the second half of the match against Jeonbuk Hyundai on the 3rd, and immediately started against Lorien and played 80 minutes. It is highly likely that he is not in good condition yet. Lee Kang-in is also likely to miss the match against Toulouse in terms of recovering from fatigue.
