Punishment by Poch? Mbappe could drop to bench for Super Cup

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 4,792

'RMC Sport' says that Kylian Mbappe is very likely to start on the bench for the French Super Cup match between PSG and Marseille. It would be an eyecatching decision by coach Mauricio Pochettino.

Pochettino's XI for the Super Cup against Marseille could include two major pieces of news. The first, that Kylian Mbappe would be on the bench. The second, that Neymar would be back in the starting XI. 

All of it, according to 'RMC Sport'. This media outlet also indicates that the most likely solution is for Kimpembe, who has also got over an injury, to play alongside the Brazilian. Pochettino is likely to play a 4-2-3-1.

Kylian being on the bench could be a punishment from the Pochettino. It is worth remembering that the Argentine said in a press conference that, like the rest of the squad, he must improve. Furthermore, in France they have ended up saying that Pochettino is not thinking of starting him in the near future. 

Neymar starting will, of course, get people talking. That means PSG will have quality on the flank thanks to the Brazilian's dribbling, quality and ability to get away from defenders. The PSG starting XI for 'RMC Sport' is the following: Navas; Pembélé, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Bakker; Paredes, Danilo; Di María, Verrati, Neymar; Icardi.
