PSG extended their lead at the top of the Ligue 1 standings to 13 points in the final game of last weekend with an emphatic victory away at Lille.
Whilst Les Dogues’ title defence has been fairly non-existent, they came into the game with a 13-game unbeaten run in front of their own fans and did find an equaliser through an acrobatic Sven Botman strike after Danilo had opened the scoring.
A second Ivo Grbic mistake of the night allowed the visitors to retake the lead through Presnel Kimpembe‘s first Ligue 1 goal – on his 140th appearance – and from there the floodgates opened, with Lionel Messi‘s second goal in France being followed by another for Danilo and a Kylian Mbappe stunner with the score 5-1 at the final whistle.
Despite the chasm to the rest of the league in terms of points, rumours continue to swirl surrounding the future of manager Mauricio Pochettino, with reports stating he could be heading for the exit as soon as March.
Much will depend on the Champions League fixture with Real Madrid, but first the Parisians must focus on getting revenge on the one team to have taken three points off them this season.
Angel Di Maria was forced off during Sunday’s win at Lille and, although the injury is not expected to be a long-term one, the Argentine will not be recovered in time for this match.
He joins Neymar (ankle), Sergio Ramos (calf), Mauro Icardi (foot) and Georginio Wijnaldum (ankle) on the sidelines.
Pochettino should, however, have Idrissa Gueye and Abdou Diallo fit and ready after their return from the Africa Cup of Nations as champions.
Another Senegalese returning from the tournament is Rennes goalkeeper Alfred Gomis, who looks set to return to his spot between the sticks.
Jeremy Doku, Romain Salin and Flavien Tait are doubts, though, whilst Jonas Martin will play despite picking up a suspension for yellow cards last time out as the ban will only come into effect against Troyes.
