Paris Saint-Germain’s Ligue 1 fixtures over the second half of the season have in years past not meant much to the team. Around this point in the season, PSG usually has a sizeable lead in the league, which allows for the team to rest several players.
However, this has not been the case for PSG this season. The reigning Ligue 1 champions stand at second place in the league standings behind Lille OSC. More so, PSG sits at points level with Olympique Lyonnais, who the French powerhouse will take on today.
Here is how PSG is lining up its side for this massive league match.
