Marco Asensio starter, Mbappé makes the PSG lineup

Back in the squad, Marco Asensio did not take part in PSG’s victory against Monaco on Friday night (5-2). However, the Spanish international could quickly be called upon to play a major role in Luis Enrique’s team.

Starting at the forefront of Paris Saint-Germain’s attack at the beginning of the season before his injury, Marco Asensio had put in some impressive performances in a role completely different from that later occupied by Randal Kolo Muani or Gonçalo Ramos. During Marco Asensio’s weeks of absence, none of the other attackers recruited by PSG this summer has established themselves as undisputed starters alongside Kylian Mbappé and Ousmane Dembélé, which leaves hope for the former Real Madrid attacking midfielder in the weeks to come.

This Tuesday, PSG takes on Newcastle at the Parc des Princes in a crucial match to win in the Champions League. What will be Luis Enrique’s choice in attack for this decisive match? It may be too early to see Marco Asensio start, but according to Le Parisien, it is clear that the Spaniard will be a very viable option for the Parisian coach in the coming weeks. Especially since his profile allows players like Kylian Mbappé or Ousmane Dembélé to shine more than when they are supported by Randal Kolo Muani or Gonçalo Ramos.

Asensio, an ideal profile to make Mbappé shine?

“In Paris, the coach asks his two center-forwards to come in support so that Dembélé and Mbappé can attack the depth when there is space. And in this role, Marco Asensio has a role to play and he knows it. In the PSG environment, there is a lot of hope for his return to put into practice what Luis Enrique expects,” says the Parisian daily before concluding.

“The Spanish coach wants to play him regularly in a dropping role, even though he likes his versatility, which allows him to play on the side or in the middle. His first touch and pressing qualities are also appreciated,” estimates Le Parisien, for whom it would not be surprising to see Marco Asensio gain a starting place at the forefront of PSG’s attack in the coming weeks. And this is not something that Kylian Mbappé will be bothered by, on the contrary. It remains to be seen if the PSG vice-captain is consulted by his coach for this kind of tactical choice.
