Lee Kang-in’s name is not in the starting line, but in “OUT”… “Lee Kang-in X Mbappe combination” next time?

The sight of ‘Golden Boy’ Lee Kang-In (22) and Kylian Mbappe (25, Paris Saint-Germain) playing together will have to wait another day, as Lee’s name was on the ‘OUT’ list rather than the expected starters.

PSG will face Borussia Dortmund in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League (UCL) Group F first leg of the 2023-2024 season at the Parc des Princes in Paris, France, at 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday.

It’s the first leg of their journey through the ‘Group of Death’. PSG has been drawn in a group with Dortmund, AC Milan (Italy), and Newcastle United (England). None of these teams are to be taken lightly, so expect some of the most intense matches in history.

Ahead of the match, PSG announced their starting lineup against Dortmund. Mbappe, Ousmane Dembele, Randal Kolo Moani, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Luca Hernandez, Ashraf Hakimi, Milan Skriniar, and Manuel Ugarte are all included in the squad.

Lee Kang-in was also included. It’s the first roster call-up in about a month. Lee injured his thigh against Toulouse on March 20. He started the match but was substituted six minutes into the second half and was later found to have a problem with his left quadriceps. As a result, Lee was left out of the squad for the two September A matches and stayed in Paris to rehabilitate.

It was his second injury since joining PSG. In July, Lee pulled his hamstring during a friendly against Le Havre in pre-season. He started and impressed in his unofficial PSG debut, but left the field just before halftime with a grip on the back of his thigh. Lee missed the subsequent tour of Japan, but returned in time for the opening match.

Lee went down again in the second game, causing some concern, but he is close to returning. He returned to team training last week and posted a photo of himself training and the words “SOON” on his personal social media, hinting that he could be back soon. However, he was left out of the squad for the last match against Nice.

Now, Lee is in line to start against Dortmund. He’s not even on PSG’s injury list, raising expectations.

However, there are reports that he could be rested for one more game. It’s also possible that he could be rested altogether and join Hwang Sun-hong in the squad. After this match, Lee will travel to China to compete at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games.카지노사이트

On its official website, UEFA removed Lee’s name from its projected starting lineup for the match. UEFA pointed out that Mbappe-Kolo Mouani-Dembele, Vitinha-Urte-Warren Zairemery, Hernandez-Skriniar-Marquinhos-Ashraf Hamiki, and Donnarumma will make up the best 11.

Lee Kang-in is on the ‘OUT’ list. UEFA’s prediction is that Lee will not play alongside Fresnel Kimpembe, Nuno Mendes, Marco Asensio, and Nordy Moukiele. However, the reason given is “absent” rather than a thigh injury, so there’s a good chance the prediction could be wrong.

Lee’s name did not appear in the starting lineup predicted by local French media. L’Equipe, RMC Sport, and Le Parisien all predicted a starting lineup of Mbappe, Kolo Mouani-Dembele, and Vitinha-Urtez-Geieremer, just like UEFA.

Of course, we can’t rule out the possibility of a substitution. Lee Kang-In is a player who could be a big boost for PSG if he’s fit. He can play on the flanks as well as in the center of the field, so he should be the first option Luis Enrique considers when thinking about his substitutions. In addition, Asensio is injured, so they don’t have many options in attack.

If Lee does play against Dortmund, it will be his return to the UCL after four seasons. He made his UCL debut in the 2019-2020 season while playing for Valencia, becoming the youngest South Korean ever to do so.
