Mauro Icardi poised to start vs RB Leipzig

L’Équipe report that Argentinian international striker Mauro Icardi is still poised to start against RB Leipzig on Tuesday, despite a poor performance against Atalanta in the Champions’ League quarter-finals.

In training this weekend, Thomas Tuchel set out his starting XI in a 4-2-3-1 shape, which saw the return of Kylian Mbappé and Angel Di Maria, but maintaining Neymar in the #10 role.

In midfield, it looks 50/50 between Idrissa Gueye and Leandro Paredes as to who will start alongside Marquinhos in a double pivot.

We will have another training session to watch on Sunday evening to see if the German tactician tries something else.
