    Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:

    Kylian Mbappe: At 20, he has achieved what many players can just dream of. And if you consider his age and the level he is playing these days, it’s breathtakingly unbelievable to think how much he can still improve. The very thought is haunting for every defender in the world.

    • Games: 41
    • Goals: 38
    • Assists: 12

    Edinson Cavani: The Uruguayan is already a legend in this part of the footballing world. More often than not, the 32-year-old manages to touch the 20-goal mark every season in the league.

    With his height and the aerial ability, the former Napoli hitman gives PSG’s attack a totally different dimension.

    Last season:

    • Games: 32
    • Goals: 22
    • Assists: 06

    Suggested combination:
