In the Champions League, you’re expected to reach the semi-finals but you’re expected to win the trophy by the end of the 2023/24 season.

Suggested best XI

FM22 PSG Best XI

When you start the save, you’ll be given a suggested best XI.

In a 4-3-3 formation, here’s the XI: Navas; Hakimi, Ramos, Marquinhos, Nuno Mendes; Wijnaldum, Herrera, Verratti; Messi, Icardi, Mbappe.

No Neymar, which is mad, but this is an immense XI!


When you start building your tactics, you’ll be suggested three presets for PSG and they’re about what you’d expect.

They’re ‘control possession’, ‘tiki-taka’, and ‘fluid counter-attack’.

PSG are expected to control most games so this is little surprise.

Key positions to strengthen

You could do with a genuinely brilliant left-back to strengthen the squad. Juan Bernat has 3* current ability and he’s the best in the position.

Other than that, the squad is ridiculously stacked.

Youngsters ready for the first team

There’s only really one player ready for the first-team in Eric Junior Dina Ebimbe, a midfielder who could become as good as Georginio Wijnaldum.

Give him some minutes!
