PSG predicted XI v Lyon: Experience over youth as Korbin Albert dropped in search of Champions League glory

Paris Saint-Germain will search for their first victory over Olympique Lyonnais this season in the Champions League semi-final later this evening, with Jocelyn Prêcheur making a series of changes over the rotated side that drew last weekend to EA Guingamp in a thrilling 3-3 tie. 

Katarzyna Kiedrzynek will keep her role as PSG’s cup goalkeeper with Constance Picaud dropping to the bench. In the back three, Eva Gaetino will return to the team ahead of the 16-year-old Anaïs Ebayilin. 

The changes carry onto the midfield as the double pivot of Korbin Albert (goalscorer in the last Champions League game and a figure of controversy) and Tara Cynthia Hermine Elimbi Gilbert are replaced by the more experienced Grace Geyoro and Jackie Groenen.

Katarzyna Kiedrzynek; Thiniba Samoura, Élisa De Almeida, Eva Gaetino; Sakina Karchaoui, Grace Geyoro, Jackie Groenen, Jade Le Guilly; Tabitha Chawinga, Sandy Baltimore, Marie-Antoinette Katoto.
