Paris Saint-Germain will be forced to forego the showdown with Lille in Ligue 1 on Saturday without Marco Verratti

The playmaker sustained a hamstring injury while playing internationally with Italy and although his problem is not considered to be a serious problem, Mauricio Pochettino is expected to let him rest before the Champions League quarter-final first leg against Bayern Munich on Wednesday

Rafinha could therefore win the number 10 ahead of Julian Draxler, but Pablo Sarabia and Mauro Icardi are still struggling with injuries and may not be there either

However, Neymar was fit enough to appear as a substitute in the recent win against Lyon and will aim to return to the starting line-up here, while Kylian Mbappe became the youngest player to score 100 Ligue 1 goals in 22 years and 91 years scored days after his brace against Les Gones

With Danilo Pereira also having a small calf problem, Leandro Paredes should return to midfielder Idrissa Gueye unless Pochettino opts for fresher legs in the form of Ander Herrera

Marquinhos stands for his 200th birthday this weekend Ligue 1 appearance at PSG and will only be the second player to reach this milestone for the club – in the footsteps of his former mentor Thiago Silva – and the Brazilian will likely partner Presnel Kimpembe again

Layvin Kurzawa had regained his place as a left-back earlier in the season, but Abdou Diallo has done some stellar performances in that role lately and is certainly in no danger of getting off, especially if Kurzawa has a calf injury
