How Paris Saint-Germain could line up against Caen

Ahead of the game between Caen and Paris Saint-Germain on Saturday, Sports Mole looks at how Thomas Tuchel's side could line up in the Ligue 1 match.

Paris Saint-Germain head into Saturday's Ligue 1 encounter with Caen looking to register their eighth successive win in all competitions.

Thomas Tuchel watched his side lose their unbeaten league record earlier this month when suffering defeat at Lyon, but his players have responded in the best possible way.

A total of 18 goals have been scored since that setback with just one being conceded, and PSG hold a 17-point lead at the top of the standings.

Tuchel has a number of selection issues this weekend, and here Sports Mole looks at how PSG could line up against a team who sit just above the relegation zone.


Out: Neymar (foot)
Doubtful: Edinson Cavani (muscle)

Edinson Cavani has spent a number of weeks on the sidelines with a muscle injury, but Tuchel has suggested that the Uruguay international will play some part against Caen.

Neymar remains a long-term absentee and will not return before the international break, but the club's injury issues are easing and Tuchel should have the majority of his squad available on Saturday.

However, a number of changes are expected with the Champions League fixture with Manchester United to follow on Wednesday, and that could see Gianluigi Buffon and Thiago Silva both handed a rest.

Layvin Kurzawa is in contention to make another start at left-back, while Dani Alves could come back into the team in central midfield with Marco Verratti potentially dropping down to the bench.

Christopher Nkunku and Moussa Diaby are also in line to make another start in the first XI having featured on a regular basis over the past three weeks.
