Paris Saint-Germain will have a crucial Ligue 1 home fixture coming up on matchday 31, as it will square off with second-place side RC Lens.
PSG managed to get back on the right track in its recent away matchup against OGC Nice, picking up a 2-0 win. Lionel Messi played an instrumental role in PSG’s attack on the day, as he recorded a goal and an assist in the contest.
According to Ligue 1’s official website, PSG manager Christophe Galtier could elect to roll with this starting 11 for his squad’s upcoming league showdown against RC Lens.
Donnarumma; Pereira, Marquinhos, Ramos; Hakimi, Ruiz, Zaire-Emery, Vitinha, Nuno Mendes; Messi, Mbappe
PSG has officially ruled out Marco Verratti for Ligue 1 matchday 31 due to a hamstring injury. As a result, Galtier could opt to call on Warren Zaire-Emery to fill Verratti’s spot in PSG’s possible 3-5-2 setup against RC Lens.
As mentioned, Messi snapped his goal-scoring drought in PSG’s 2-0 win over OGC Nice. Overall, the Argentine forward currently sits at 28 goal contributions in 25 matches played so far in the ongoing Ligue 1 campaign.
PSG has come away with just one win from its last five meetings against RC Lens in Ligue 1 play.
