Paris Saint-Germain will have the final away fixture of its season on Ligue 1 matchday 37, as it will meet Strasbourg.
PSG’s win over Auxerre on Ligue 1 matchday 36 moved the side a step closer to being crowned Ligue 1 champions. A pair of early goals from Kylian Mbappe in the first half of the match was all that PSG needed to secure the 27th win of its league campaign.
Overall, PSG will be without multiple players in this contest, including Marquinhos, who the club has ruled out due to an adductor injury.
As PSG needs a mere draw result against Strasbourg to officially clinch Ligue 1 on matchday 37, here is how manager Christophe Galtier could roll out his squad for its final away match of the season.
Donnarumma; Pereira, Ramos, Bitshiabu; Zaire-Emery, Vitinha, Verratti, Bernat; Soler, Messi, Mbappe
Galtier has been relying on Warren Zaire-Emery to take hold of the right wing-back position as of late. Barring a major surprise, Zaire-Emery should be called on to start in this position against Strasbourg.
Lionel Messi is currently on a four-match goalless streak in Ligue 1 play. He failed to hit the back of the net in PSG’s win over Auxerre, even though he logged four shots in the contest. He sure could use a few goals against Strasbourg to keep his hopes alive of finishing his second season at PSG with at least 20 league goals scored.
PSG last squared off against Strasbourg on Ligue 1 matchday 16 when it came away with a 2-1 home win.
