The Italian returns from a two-game ban to man the engine room at the Orange Velodrome, but as one lynchpin returns for Christophe Galtier, another one drops out.
The perennially-injured Renato Sanches came off with a muscular issue just 14 minutes into Saturday's win over Toulouse, and Galtier is fearing a few weeks without the Portuguese.
As a result, Verratti can expect to link arms with Vitinha and Fabian Ruiz in the centre, while Neymar is back from a groin problem and could feature just ahead of the triumvirate - demoting Carlos Soler in the process.
Further back, Sergio Ramos has also fully recovered from a groin injury of his own and will be in line for an immediate return, but Presnel Kimpembe is still building up his fitness after an Achilles problem.
Ramos could therefore line up next to Marquinhos in front of Gianluigi Donnarumma - forcing Danilo Pereira out in the process - while Nuno Mendes and Achraf Hakimi continue in the full-back positions with Nordi Mukiele yet to return from a hamstring strain.
