Koeman talks Mbappe and how to defend against him

Ronald Koeman expects 'a beautiful game' since both Leo Messi and Kylian Mbappe will be on the pitch.

The Dutchman hints that Barca will opt for zonal marking while trying to keep hold of Mbappe.

Koeman urges the team to be ready to regroup after losing the ball.

"For PSG, it [the best player] is Mbappe who is a very fast player, a player who can make things very complicated for any kind of defence. We are going to have a beautiful game because you have to enjoy these players [Mbappe and Messi]," Ronald Koeman has told the media ahead of the PSG game.

"I'm not in favour of man-to-man marking for these kinds of players. We know how our players should defend positionally. It's important for us when we have the ball to be defensively ready for when we lose the ball," the Dutchman added when asked about how Barca are going to defend against Mbappe.

Apart from his speedy runs, Kylian Mbappe is known for being a predatory striker. The 22-year-old has bagged 18 goals in 28 games this season.
