Paris Saint-Germain will have its first real test of the new season on Ligue 1 matchday three, as it will meet Lille OSC for a crucial league matchup.
PSG enters this match with no notable injury concerns, as all 11 players who earned a start in the 5-2 win over Montpellier were listed on the squad list for this upcoming fixture.
As noted by WhoScored, PSG manager Christophe Galtier could very well roll out the exact same starting 11 that he went with for the league matches against both Clermont Foot and Montpellier.
Donnarumma; Kimpembe, Marquinhos, Ramos; Mendes, Vitinha, Verratti, Hakimi; Messi; Neymar, Mbappe
PSG goalkeeper Keylor Navas is unavailable for this match, as he left PSG’s scheduled training session on Saturday due to lower back pain. In the case that Donnarumma ends up not starting against Lille or is substituted during the contest due to injury, Galtier will have Sergio Rico to rely on at the goalkeeper position.
Lionel Messi did not chip in with a goal contribution in the 5-2 victory over Montpellier, although he did log three shots on target and created one goal-scoring chance. He sure will look to get back on the scoresheet in this upcoming clash with Lille.
PSG won both league encounters against Lille last season, as it combined to score seven goals in the contests.
