After coming away with a scoreless draw result in Ligue 1 play against OGC Nice, Paris Saint-Germain now has a notable away league fixture upcoming against RC Lens.
PSG comes into this fixture with one new absence, as center-back Sergio Ramos will not feature in this league encounter with Lens due to muscle fatigue. The veteran defender will at the least make his return to training with PSG on Sunday.
Overall, PSG is still projected to roll out a keen starting 11 for this league matchup, as noted by the Argentine-based outlet TyC Sports.
Donnarumma; Hakimi, Marquinhos, Dagba, Mendes; Gueye, Pereira, Paredes; Di Maria, Messi, Mbappe
As Ramos will not play in this upcoming league matchup, veteran Brazilian center-back Marquinhos is on par to lead PSG’s backline.
PSG had Italian midfielder Marco Verratti make his return to action in the team’s recent league fixture against Nice, as he played in 28 minutes of the contest and created one goal-scoring chance. He did just recover from a quad injury, so Pochettino could elect to once again have the midfielder start the match on the bench.
As was the case in the clash against Nice, Angel Di Maria, Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe are slated to once again lead PSG’s attacking setup upfront.
PSG currently holds the top spot in the league standings with 41 points.
