For the first time in Ligue 1 this season, Paris Saint-Germain will clash with reigning league winners Lille OSC, as they are set to face off tomorrow.
PSG comes into the fixture with several injury concerns, including with forward Kylian Mbappe, who will not feature in the match due to an ENT infection.
Still, PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino is slated to field a strong starting 11 for this matchup, as noted by FotMob.
Navas; Kehrer, Kimpembe, Marquinhos, Mendes; Wijnaldum, Gueye; Di Maria, Messi, Neymar; Icardi
PSG midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum has yet to post a vintage showing over his early run with the French powerhouse. If he earns a start in this match, then he will have yet another opportunity to begin to prove to PSG’s coaching staff on why he deserves to be a regular starter.
Argentine forward Lionel Messi missed training on Thursday, as Pochettino noted that he is dealing with muscle discomfort ahead of the match. Barring any major surprise, Messi should be in PSG’s starting 11 for this fixture.
A win for PSG in this match could give the side a 16-point lead over Lille in the league standings.
