Thomas Tuchel: “We have decided to play with the same structure.”

Speaking to RMC Sport just minutes ago, PSG manager Thomas Tuchel explained his selection decisions, dropping Mauro Icardi to the bench in favour of Kylian Mbappé and Angel di Maria making a return.

“We have decided to play with the same structure and we have chosen Angel and Kylian. We played in a 4-3-3 against Lyon and Atalanta. It was not the moment to change structure. Leipzig adapt defensively to the structure that the opponent puts out. And the players feel good in this formation. For the 4-4-2 we really need to have the best capacities. Maybe we could have continued with that system after Dortmund if the season had not been interrupted by we chose the 4-3-3 tonight.”
