Nice predicted XI v PSG: Khéphren Thuram to return, Romain Perraud could make his first start

Having missed OGC Nice’s 2-0 victory over RC Strasbourg Alsace before the international break with a minor injury, Khéphren Thuram is expected to return to the starting lineup against Paris Saint-Germain on Friday. 

The Frenchman, who this summer attracted interest from Liverpool, felt discomfort in his thigh and therefore missed Les Aiglons’ final game before the break. However, he has fully recovered and is now expected to start as Nice look to register back-to-back wins. 

Romain Perraud, who returned to Nice on loan from Championship side Southampton before the closure of the summer transfer window, could also start. Melvin Bard’s uptick in form means that Perraud will face competition for the left-back spot. Jérémir Boga has also recovered from a minor injury and is expected to start. There are no fresh injury concerns for Franscesco Farioli, who is still unable to call upon Alexis Claude-Maurice.

Nice likely lineup v PSG

Marcin Bulka; Romain Perraud, Dante, Jean-Clair Todibo, Youcef Atal; Khéphren Thuram, Youssouf Ndayishimiye, Morgan Sanson; Jérémie Boga, Terem Moffi, Gaëtan Laborde.
