How Paris Saint-Germain could line up against Marseille

Sports Mole looks at how Paris Saint-Germain could line up when they travel to Marseille in Ligue 1 on Sunday night.

Paris Saint-Germain will look to continue their perfect start to the 2018-19 Ligue 1 season when they travel to Marseille on Sunday night.

PSG were held by Napoli in the Champions League on Wednesday, but have a 100% record in the league this term, winning all 10 of their matches.

Thomas Tuchel‘s team already have an eight-point cushion over second-placed Lille despite their strong start, and have averaged almost four goals per game in their 10 league fixtures this term.

Here, Sports Mole takes a look at how the free-scoring French champions could line up when they make the trip to fifth-placed Marseille this weekend.

Out: Dani Alves (knee), Layvin Kurzawa (hernia), Presnel Kimpembe (suspension)
Doubtful: Thiago Silva (Achilles)

PSG have an entire back four still on the sidelines, with Dani Alves out of action with a long-term knee problem, and fellow full-back Layvin Kurzawa unavailable due to a hernia. Presnel Kimpembe will again miss out through suspension, while fellow centre-back Thiago Silva has an Achilles problem.

As a result, summer arrival Thilo Kehrer is expected to start in central defence with Marquinhos, with Juan Bernat and Thomas Meunier making up the back four ahead of Alphonse Areola.

Adrien Rabiot and Marco Verratti, meanwhile, should play behind star trio Kylian Mbappe, Angel Di Maria and Neymar, with Julian Draxler providing an option from the bench.

Edinson Cavani has his critics, but the striker has scored six times in 10 appearances in all competitions this season, and will again lead the French side’s line at the Stade Velodrome.
