Mbappé and Dembele raise hopes in group against Toulouse

Late additions to Luis Enrique’s group this summer, Kylian Mbappé and Ousmane Dembele should be available for Paris Saint-Germain’s trip to Toulouse during the second day of Ligue 1 this Saturday.

Dominating but ineffective against Lorient (0-0) at the Parc des Princes, PSG are expected to open their season against Toulouse on the second day of Ligue 1. Traveling to the banks of the Garonne on Saturday, the Ile-de-France club should be able to rely on the Dembele-Mbappe duo.

Gathered in the stands during the duel against Merlas, the two friends were all smiles after a busy summer. Punished by his management for the non-activation of an extension clause, Kylian Mbappe returned to Luis Enrique’s squad on Sunday and appears to have calmed down with his leaders. Despite complicated negotiations to leave Barca, Ousmane Dembele found Ligue 1 and several of his teammates with the Blues by signing in Paris.

Mbappé and Dembele lack rhythm

Kylian Mbappé took part in the Pro Group’s training session as usual this Wednesday, staying with the Lofturs in Poissy during PSG’s tour of Asia. Same situation for Ousmane Dembele just days after his signing. Unless there is a last-minute change, two 2018 world champions will be at Luis Enrique’s disposal.

But it remains to be seen whether the two Tricolor friends will line up at the start of the match against Tefece. Both haven’t played a single minute for weeks and could be out of touch after a busy summer of preparation.

Kylian Mbappe has not played since Paris’s success against Le Havre (2-0) on 21 July. A friendly match during which the striker scored in extra time after spending almost thirty minutes on the field.

It can hardly be better for ‘Damboz’ who can debut under their new colors in Toulouse. If he missed Barca’s last two friendlies against Tottenham and AC Milan, the 26-year-old winger had two games against Arsenal and Real Madrid (110 minutes in total). He scored better in the Classico. What a repeat for a dream premiership this Saturday with PSG? Ile-de-France supporters will likely find nothing to complain about.
