For the first time this season, Paris Saint-Germain will have a midweek Ligue 1 fixture as it will face Metz on matchday seven. PSG comfortably holds the top spot in the Ligue 1 standings, but it will look to further open up its lead over the rest of the teams in the top-four.
PSG does have one major injury concern, as Lionel Messi will miss this fixture due to a slight left knee injury.
Nonetheless, PSG is expected to roll out this starting lineup for the match, as noted by WhoScored.
Navas; Mendes, Diallo, Marquinhos, Hakimi; Wijnaldum, Gueye; Mbappe, Neymar, Di Maria; Icardi
It seems as if PSG’s goalkeeper dilemma between Gianluigi Donnarumma and Keylor Navas will carry on, as the Costa Rican goalkeeper is slated to earn a start in this matchup.
As of late, PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino has opted to go with a 4-2-3-1 formation. He may elect to do so once again in this match, with the likes of Neymar and Mauro Icardi leading the way upfront.
PSG aims to open up the league season with seven straight wins.
