How Paris Saint-Germain could line up against Bordeaux

Sports Mole looks at how Paris Saint-Germain could line up against Bordeaux this weekend.

Paris Saint-Germain will be looking to make it 15 wins from 15 Ligue 1 matches this season when they travel to Bordeaux on Sunday night.

PSG have incredibly collected 42 points from their 14 league matches this season, and sit 15 points ahead of nearest challenges Lyon.

The French champions will also enter this weekend's game off the back of a morale-boosting 2-1 win over Liverpool in the Champions League.

Bordeaux, meanwhile, have won four, drawn five and lost five of their 14 matches to sit in 12th position on 17 points.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how runaway leaders PSG could line up at the Matmut Atlantique.


POSS PSG XI vs. BOR

Out: None
Doubtful: None

Dani Alves continued his recovery from a serious knee injury off the bench against Liverpool during the week, but the Brazilian is probably another couple of matches away from being named in the starting XI.

There are expected to be alterations from the side that featured against Liverpool, however, with Julian Draxler, Moussa Diaby and Stanley Nsoki pushing for positions in the team.

Neymar and Kylian Mbappe were both carrying injuries ahead of the clash with Liverpool, but the pair came through the European tie and are expected to be named in the XI once again.

That said, there is the chance that head coach Thomas Tuchel could take the opportunity to rest one of his first-choice front three, which also includes Edinson Cavani.

A back three, meanwhile, could include summer signing Thilo Kehrer and 24-year-old Marquinhos, who played in midfield against Liverpool.
