The defence is not too balanced now and most of the time, the team depends on Nicolas Otamendi but in the midfield and forward sections, they are the best we can say that. PSG’s Di Maria has returned to the squad along with his clubmate Leandro Paredes. Besides, alongside Messi, the team has Lautaro Martinez, Lucas Ocampos and some other young talents. However, Sergio Aguero and Paulo Dybala will be added there hopefully.
