Paris Saint-Germain is set to return to action on Ligue 1 matchday nine with a home fixture against OGC Nice.
PSG comes into this fixture with a few minor injury concerns. For one, midfielder Marco Verratti was not included in the squad list, as he will serve a one-match yellow card suspension.
Thus, there are expected to be multiple changes with PSG manager Christophe Galtier’s starting 11 for this fixture, and he could opt to select this group for the match, as noted by SofaScore.
Donnarumma; Ramos, Marquinhos, Pereira; Hakimi, Vitinha, Ruiz, Mendes; Messi, Neymar; Mbappe
With Verratti ruled out against OGC Nice, Fabian Ruiz could take the Italian midfielder’s spot in Galtier’s double-pivot setup. The Spanish talent last earned a start in PSG’s 1-0 league away win over Olympique Lyonnais, where he featured in 57 minutes of the contest and completed two tackles.
Lionel Messi orchestrated a pair of potent showings for the Argentina national team over the September international break, as he combined for four goals scored against Honduras and Jamaica. He sure is aiming to extend his goals streak in all competitions to five matches in PSG’s upcoming clash with OGC Nice.
Overall, OGC Nice is on a three-match unbeaten streak against PSG in all competitions.
