How Paris Saint-Germain could line up against Brest

Paris Saint-Germain are still sweating over the fitness of Lionel Messi ahead of their Ligue 1 encounter with Brest on Saturday night.

The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner is reportedly yet to return to team training following COVID-19 infection, but Gianluigi Donnarumma, Angel Di Maria and Julian Draxler are all thought to be back with the group.

Danilo Pereira and Layvin Kurzawa remain uncertain, though, while Neymar is still out injured and Abdou Diallo, Achraf Hakimi and Idrissa Gueye remain away on Africa Cup of Nations duty.

Even if Donnarumma is fit enough to play a part at the weekend, he will have a hard time displacing Keylor Navas in goal, as Marquinhos and Presnel Kimpembe keep Sergio Ramos out of the team.

Nuno Mendes can also expect to hold his spot over Juan Bernat, but Thilo Kehrer will hope to demote Colin Dagba to the bench after scoring his side’s equaliser against Lyon.

Leandro Paredes is set for another start in the middle with Gueye absent, and he ought to be joined by Marco Verratti and Georginio Wijnaldum for Saturday’s game.

Ander Herrera will likely make way if Di Maria is fit enough to start on the right, as Mauro Icardi and Kylian Mbappe complete Mauricio Pochettino‘s attack.

PSG possible starting lineup: Navas; Kehrer, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Mendes; Wijnaldum, Paredes, Verratti; Di Maria, Icardi, Mbappe
