PSG predicted XI v Brest: Bradley Barcola returns following suspension

Bradley Barcola was sent off during a 2-2 draw against Stade Brestois just over a week ago, and as the pair prepare to face off once again, this time in the Coupe de France, the Frenchman returns from his suspension, and he is expected to start. 

Barcola served his suspension last weekend, during Paris Saint-Germain’s 2-1 victory over RC Strasbourg Alsace. He is expected to be thrown straight back into the starting XI for PSG’s match against Brest on Wednesday evening. The France U21 international is expected to be partnered by Kylian Mbappé and Marco Asensio up front, with Randal Kolo Muani dropping to the bench. 

Ousmane Dembélé returned to first-team training on Monday having been left out of the match against Strasbourg as a precaution. However, he is not expected to be brought straight back into the lineup with a match against Lille OSC coming up on Saturday. Nuno Mendes is also nearing a return, but this match against Brest will come too soon for him.
