Paris Saint-Germain will take on OGC Nice up next for what can be tabbed as the biggest test of its Ligue 1 campaign so far. OGC Nice did not allow a goal to PSG in the league fixture in the first half of the season and also in the Coupe de France round of 16 encounter.
With PSG’s UEFA Champions League round of 16 second leg clash against Real Madrid coming next week, manager Mauricio Pochettino could opt to rest some of his key talents for the match against OGC Nice. However, as noted by TyC Sports, Pochettino could also elect to roll out this keen starting 11 for the contest.
Navas; Kehrer, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Mendes; Wijnaldum, Danilo, Gueye; Messi, Neymar, Di Maria
In the second half of PSG’s league win over AS Saint-Etienne in the last matchday, Pochettino opted to alter his formation to a three-at-the-back setup. Still, Pochettino may go to his usual 4-3-3 formation against OGC Nice.
Lionel Messi has been in top form as of late, which includes five assists recorded in his last four Ligue 1 appearances. PSG sure could use another top showing from the Argentine in league play.
PSG aims for its 20th win of the campaign in this match.
