PSG will wait on both Neymar and Mbappe. Verratti and Herrera out. Performances have been mixed this season.
PSG struggled to overcome Brest 2-1 away from home immediately before the international break, with Mauro Icardi decisive for them once more after coming off the bench.
Continued a recent trend of not hitting their top form: before that match they lost 2-1 against lowly Dijon and were only able to overcome a modest Brugge side 1-0 at home.
Did rotate their side significantly before the international break, with even goalkeeper Sergio Rico afford some match time.
Kylian Mbappe has been ill this week and did not train on Tuesday. While he was initially expected to be available for this match, PSG may choose to restrict his participation even if he’s fit to make the squad.
Neymar continues to build his fitness following a thigh problem. He should be ready to take part against Real Madrid in the Champions League next week and the latest signs are he may even be available here.
Marco Verratti (knee), Andre Herrera (quads), Thomas Meunier (thigh), Thilo Kehrer (foot) and Eric Choupo-Moting (back) are all issues. Verratti and Herrera have been ruled out.
Mauro Icardi should benefit from being frozen out of the national team to start this game. He has been outstanding for PSG in the centre-forward role, which is now his to lose.
