Paris Saint-Germain will finish the calendar year with a key Ligue 1 fixture against Lorient.
PSG comes into this contest with multiple notable absences. Among them, both forward Kylian Mbappe and midfielder Marco Verratti will not play in this match due to yellow card suspensions.
At the least, several other key talents will be available for this league encounter, and as noted by TyC Sports, PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino could still roll out a formidable starting 11 for it.
Donnarumma; Hakimi, Ramos, Marquinhos, Diallo; Gueye, Wijnaldum, Paredes; Messi, Icardi, Di Maria
Veteran Spanish defender Sergio Ramos made his return to action in PSG’s recent Coupe de France knockout stage win over Feignies. After featuring in only the first half of the match, he could be in line to play in the entirety of the team’s clash with Lorient.
As Mbappe will not take part in this match, Pochettino could opt to start Mauro Icardi upfront as the team’s main striker. Lionel Messi and Angel Di Maria could look to play the role of a playmaker in this fixture by creating numerous high percentage goal-scoring chances for him.
PSG sure can orchestrate an all-around convincing performance to finish the year on a promising note.
