PSG predicted XI v Lorient: Kylian Mbappé and Lionel Messi to start up front

Paris Saint-Germain have no fresh injury concerns as they prepare to welcome FC Lorient to the Parc des Princes on Sunday.  

Presnel Kimpembe, Nordi Mukiele, Renato Sanches and Neymar all remain absent for PSG. The latter has returned to Paris after a visit to his native Brazil and has had his protective boot removed ahead of the start of the next phase of his rehabilitation. 

With six games remaining before the end of the season, and an eight-point lead at the top, Les Parisiens can make another significant step towards the title with a victory against Régis Le Bris’ side, who have nothing to play for at this point of the season. 

There are unlikely to be any surprises in PSG’s lineup, with Christophe Galtier set to deploy the regular 3-5-2 with Kylian Mbappé and Lionel Messi leading the line. The former will be hoping to increase in tally in his quest to secure the Golden Boot. The France captain remains one goal ahead of Lille OSC’s Jonathan David.

Gianluigi Donnarumma – Danilo Pereira, Sergio Ramos, Marquinhos – Nuno Mendes, Vitinha, Marco Verratti, Carlos Soler, Achraf Hakimi – Kylian Mbappé, Lionel Messi.
