The forward has served a three-match suspension.

Kylian Mbappe returns for Paris St Germain's final home game of the season against Dijon.

The France World Cup-winning forward has completed a three-match ban and will be looking to add to his tally of 30 goals this season.

PSG's form has dwindled since they clinched the title last month but boss Thomas Tuchel wants a big finish in front of their own fans.

"It's very important for us to finish the season with a win at Parc des Princes," said Tuchel at his pre-match press conference.

"You have to play with a good mentality and with a lot of quality. The season is not over, the players will give everything on the field. It's important to win in front of our fans.

#"We are very happy with this season. We need to improve things defensively, create a team with more reliable players, more players who have the ability to play a lot of high-level matches.

"We know how to be successful. We will continue on this path. We have seen a lot this season. We'll be ready for the next season.

"We like to play in front of our fans, it's extraordinary. I hope we will play well to celebrate the championship.

"But it's not easy to win a title, nothing is ever acquired in advance. It's important for us to play well and win the game at home."

Tuchel will be without Brazilian defender Thiago Silva, who is injured.

Dijon face a daunting task if they are to prolong their survival battle until the final day of the season. They currently lie in the relegation zone, two points behind Caen and Monaco.

Dijon have not scored in their last three clashes with PSG and have not beaten the champions since 2011. They have also kept just one clean sheet in their last 15 games.

Boss Antoine Kombouare, who was sacked by PSG in 2011, told L'Equipe: "We must spoil their party.

"They can be relaxed and it can be very complicated for us. But they can be a little less concerned, and let go a little mentally if the game becomes difficult, as we have seen recently.

"Do not think they are already on vacation. We must put in the necessary ingredients, try everything to make them doubt, and be very effective when we have opportunities. Only then can we take advantage."
