Paris Saint-Germain continues its stretch run of the Ligue 1 season with an away fixture against Bordeaux.
PSG comes into the match with multiple players out due to injury, including Marco Verratti and Angel Di Maria. Still, PSG does get back several players who missed the previous fixture against Dijon, including Mauro Icardi and Leandro Paredes.
Here is how manager Mauricio Pochettino is rolling out his side for this critical league duel.

As expected, Keylor Navas takes the start for PSG in this matchup. With the Costa Rican getting the nod for this fixture, he could end up being kept on the bench for the upcoming Coupe de France matchup against Brest for rest-related reasons.
Marquinhos once again leads PSG for a league duel. The Brazilian will not have Alessandro Florenzi on his right side due to the Italian’s adductor injury, so Colin Dagba will be the one to slot out in the right-back position.
Rafinha will have hefty responsibilities in this match as he will lead PSG via the central attacking midfield role.
With Neymar and Kylian Mbappe out for this match, Mauro Icardi will thus have to lead PSG upfront. Moise Kean was projected to pair up with Icardi upfront, but the Italian is out due to a positive coronavirus test.
The race continues at the top of the Ligue 1 table.
