Paris Saint-Germain travel to bottom side Troyes as they attempt to go 10 points clear at the top of Ligue 1.

After narrow Champions League defeat to Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain travel to Troyes as they resume their focus on winning the Ligue 1 title.

It is a battle between top and bottom as hosting Troyes prop up the rest of the league. They have shown signs of improvement recently, however, with just one defeat in four.

PSG have won three of their last four Ligue 1 games and a win would temporarily put them 10 points clear at the top.

Troyes are likely to remain without Corentin Jean, but his absence is the only real concern for them ahead of the clash.

Whether Carlo Ancelotti will rest any players remains to be seen, but he could be tempted to drop Alex to the bench with the centre-back's recent return from injury.
