Paris Saint-Germain is still vying for a possible treble-winning campaign and its journey in this potential feat will continue in the Coupe de France quarterfinal fixture against Angers.
PSG heads into this fixture with a lengthy injury list as the likes of Marquinhos (thigh) and Marco Verratti (thigh) are each dealing with minor injuries. Still, PSG has the depth to roll out a formidable starting 11 for this match.
As noted by Goal, here is how PSG could line up against Angers.
Rico; Florenzi, Danilo Pereira, Kehrer, Kurzawa; Gueye, Paredes; Di Maria, Mbappe, Neymar; Icardi
Keylor Navas will miss this fixture due to a shoulder injury. Thus, Sergio Rico is expected to earn the start for PSG in this pivotal domestic cup match.
As mentioned, Marquinhos is out for this match due to a nagging thigh injury. Danilo Pereira has received multiple starts as a center-back this season and could very well receive another start at this position for this match.
Neymar has missed PSG’s last two league fixtures due to the red card suspension following the Lille OSC fixture. PSG could elect to provide Neymar with starting minutes in this match in an effort to help him dust off any rust.
Mauro Icardi shined for PSG in its recent fixture thanks to the game-winning goal against AS Saint-Etienne. The Argentine may go on to now earn a start in this pivotal contest in an effort to help the forward build on momentum.
PSG is currently in the stretch run of its season and as mentioned, the side could finish off the campaign as treble-winners.
