Preview: Paris Saint-Germain vs. Nice

Sports Mole looks ahead to the Ligue 1 clash between table-topping Paris Saint-Germain and Nice at the Parc des Princes.

Paris Saint-Germain coach Laurent Blanc faces an interesting selection dilemma surrounding star strike duo Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani ahead of tomorrow afternoon's clash with Nice.

Ibrahimovic was preferred to Cavani for Tuesday's surprise 1-1 draw at home to Anderlecht in the Champions League, while Cavani scored a brace in his last start during a 4-0 rout over Lorient last week.

Blanc could choose to incorporate both forwards against a Nice side who have lost their last two in Ligue 1, while Jeremy Menez and Javier Pastore are also pushing for a place in the starting XI.

The defending champions are close to full strength as they look to extend a 16-match unbeaten run in all competitions, with Thiago Silva in line for his first start after recovering form a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

Nice travel to the French capital without goalkeeper David Ospina, who suffered knee ligament damage in last weekend's 2-1 defeat to Bordeaux.

The visitors will be heavily reliant on forward talisman Dario Cvitanich at the Parc des Princes, with the Argentine striker scoring eight goals in all competitions in a fine start to the campaign.
