Paris Saint-Germain has a mere three matches remaining on its Ligue 1 schedule, which include its upcoming home encounter with Troyes.
PSG could head into the matchup with the possibility of not having Lionel Messi in its final squad list for the contest. The Argentine forward did not feature in collective training on Saturday after “feeling pain in his ribs,” as noted by the club’s official injury report for the match. For now, his status for the fixture is up in the air.
At the least, as noted by TyC Sports, PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino could still feature the likes of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe for the contest.
Donnarumma; Marquinhos, Ramos, Kimpembe; Hakimi, Verratti, Pereira, Bernat; Messi, Mbappe, Neymar
Pochettino provided Juan Bernat with a start in the 3-3 draw result against Strasbourg, where the left-back won five ground duels and completed two interceptions. The veteran Spanish defender could go on to feature in this clash with Troyes.
Overall, PSG has come away with eight straight wins against Troyes in Ligue 1 play dating back to the 2006-2007 campaign.
