Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors will take on European giants Paris Saint-Germain this Thursday, August 3 in the third match of the Coupang Play Series following the Team K League match vs Atletico Madrid and the subsequent Atleti vs Manchester City matches.
The match concludes PSG’s pre-season tour of Asia after spending the last week in Tokyo and Osaka. The French champions drew 0-0 against Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr before being beaten by Cerezo Osaka. They suffered another defeat in their last game in Japan, losing 2-1 to UCL finalists Inter.
The Parisians will be without global superstar Kylian Mbappé, who was left out of their pre-season squad amid speculation over his future at the club. The 2018 World Cup winner looks set to leave the French capital this summer with Real Madrid’s leading players to sign what many believe is the best player in the world.
Korea international and new signing Lee Kang-in continued training after being substituted off injured against Le Havre shortly before his team left for their pre-season tour of Japan. He was an unused substitute in PSG’s 3-2 and 2-1 defeats to Cerezo Osaka and Inter. He is expected to return soon. Lee Kang-in is the reason this match is happening. Many will be looking forward to seeing him play against Jeonbuk in Busan. He is expected to appear on Thursday. His condition shouldn’t be a big concern.
PSG legend and Italian international Marco Verratti may be in doubt. He has reportedly accepted a three-year contract with Al Hilal. Renato Sanches may also be in doubt. He is linked with a move to AS Rome. Negotiations are ongoing.
