Sports Mole previews Friday's Ligue 1 clash between Paris Saint-Germain and Toulouse.

Paris Saint-Germain will attempt to extend their gap at the top of the Ligue 1 table when they make the trip to face mid-table outfit Toulouse on Friday.

Carlo Ancelotti's side currently top the standings in France with 45 points from 22 matches, but Lyon are on their tails with the same total. They will enter the match full of confidence, however, having won four of their last five matches in all competitions.

Toulouse, meanwhile, have lost just one of their last five matches in all competitions, a run of form that has seen them move into 10th spot in the table. They have also just twice in 11 league matches on their home patch this season and would move level on points with seventh-placed Saint-Etienne with all three points against the capital outfit.

The reverse fixture earlier in the season ended in a 2-0 win for Paris Saint-Germain, while Ancelotti's side have won each of their last five matches against Toulouse.

The home side have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the match, with Yannick Djalo expected to lead the line once more. Cheick Bangre could come into the midfield, however, at the expense of Francois Paxti Sirieix, who is struggling with injury.

Paris Saint-Germain could continue with the same side that beat Lille last time out, but Marco Veratti and Gregory van der Wiel are both pushing for recalls. Zlatan Ibrahimovic is expected to continue in attack alongside Ezequiel Lavezzi.

Toulouse: Ahamada; MBengue, Aurier, Yago, Ninkov; Ben Yedder, Didot, Tabanou, Capoue, Bangre; Djalo
